I’ve received some emails asking why there are no new postings on my “RVing to Alaska Blog” (the last entry was posted on March 16th). Easy answer. I really believe that starting late April (and up through May) it’s really too late to start planning an Alaskan trip in your RV. I always recommend RVers “put together” this trip (plan/research it) starting after Christmas and you can do this planning up through about mid-April at the latest. Granted you can get to Alaska by just jumping in your RV and heading northwest but by putting some effort into learning about the trip, you will simply have a better, easier time, you will learn more, and it will probably cost less.
Since I always recommend you spend a full summer up there (why would you go that far and not take the time to see everything), crossing the US/Canadian border somewhere out west a week or so before Memorial Day is the perfect time to start the trip. Crossing the border around Labor Day, coming south, makes the trip perfect for time—time to see everything and not rush. After all, if you miss something, it’s a long way back up there!!!
I assure you the Alaskan Blog will start again just after Christmas. Let me know if it helps.
