I shall ride up to Truckee (nr Lake Tahoe), meet my pal and ride north......
Hi John, We corresponded during the early stages of your trip planning last year. I live in Anchorage.
If you haven't already found it, The Milepost travel guide is a valuable resource for an Alaska Hwy journey. The book has a lot of info, but may be too big to haul with you. But their web site has a lot of free and valuable info also: LINK
One stop I consider to be a MUST on this trip is Liard Hot Springs in northern British Columbia -- near the Yukon border. You walk about a half mile on a boardwalk to the hot springs. The site is beautiful, and a dip in the hot water feels great after long days riding. It's about 1100 miles from Anchorage, and there's a provincial campground there. (Watch for bison on the highway in this area.)
When do you expect to be in Anchorage? I'll be out of state July 1 - 21, but would enjoy meeting up when you get here. Let me know if we can be of assistance.
