Ultimate road trip
Well, if you have one of those 'states visited' travel maps and want to fill in all the mainland states in just one summer, here's one option. But don't plan on much for touristy activities in each state. Enjoy the trip.

RE: Ultimate road trip
My wife is wanting to take a trip to Alaska. I am sure many of you have done this so I would like to ask a few questions:

1- how much time should we allow to do it right - we live close to Chicago
2- how hard is this on the coach. I would hate to destroy it doing the trip
3- I would imagine the best time for the trip would be summer - is that correct
4- any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks

Urnie

RE: Ultimate road trip
Urnie,

There's a ton of stuff to see and do in AK. We took a month when we went up to the Arctic Circle and back. We did not get down into Anchorage or the Kenai Peninsula, nor over to Valdez. We drove by Denali, but did not stop. While we did lose 2 days in Whitehorse due to equipment issues and we took the intercoastal ferry from Haines to Bellingham (4.5 days, that probably could have been faster by driving it), a month was easily used up. You could very easily spend a month there and 2 weeks going and 2 weeks coming. It's a huge state, so it takes a long time just getting from one point to another.
Summer is probably the best time to go, though once you get into the plains area, the mosquitoes can be tortuous.
I was cleaning calcium chloride (used for dust control) out for years after the trip, as an fyi.
