My boyfriend and I are planning to drive from the Dayton, Ohio area up to Alaska in about a month, where we'll both be living for at least the summer (I'm from Alaska, and did a similar drive with my family back when I was 12... but that was a long time ago!). We had originally been planning to fly, but after considering things recently decided it made more sense to drive.
We're looking at leaving Ohio around April 18th, and hoping to get to Alaska by May 3rd at the latest. Since we just made this decision in the last few days, it's a little overwhelming trying to plan everything for a trip so soon!
At this point, we're thinking we'll head West from Ohio, going by Mount Rushmore, then up through Yellowstone & Glacier National Parks, and then through Banff once we're in Canada. In our preliminary planning, those are the only points we've really picked so far!
I'm wondering if any has general advice for us concerning the trip, and any other suggestions on places we should check out and things we should do. We're hoping to camp along the way, and I'm wondering if folks think that's feasible, and what kind of camping fees we may be looking at?
Thanks so much!!!!
