We learned to keep it right with us as we headed out on our day's drive. I began each morning by finding the pages I would need. One recommendation: take some page marker post-its with you AND a yellow highlighter. I had the highlighter but surely wish I had post-its. Highlighter invaluable! I skimmed and highlighted primarily camping possibilities but other items too. Post-its would have been helpful when we changed from one section to another in a day's journey. The Milepost now becomes part of our journal of the trip...particularly ID'ing photos and videos taken. Oh, and super to know ahead of time where Tim Horton's were....if you don't know this franchise you will!
That being said, I wouldn't drive to Alaska without it. Good luck on your road trip!
So why is The Milepost so valuable to this experience? Alaska and Northwest Canada have far less tourist infrastructure than what travelers may be used to in the lower '48 states or lower Canada. Gas stations, restaurants, and places to sleep may be few and far between, and what there is fills up quickly. Planning ahead is a great way to ensure a good experience, and the Milestone is just the planning resource that most visitors need.
The 2016 version of "The Milepost" is the 68th edition of the most useful travel guide to the limited road network in Alaska, and Northwest Canada. The Milepost offers a mile-by-mile travelogue, updated annually, for the main roads, along with maps, diagrams of some key towns, photographs, and advertisements for attractions, accomodations, and other travel facilities. It includes small delights that might not make it into guide books, like scenic overlooks of glaciers, or places to book a fishing trip, or even "the world's best cinnamon buns." It includes basic information for the Alaska Marine Ferry System, a way to see Southeast Alaska from the water and take your vehicle with you. This guide is a must-have resource for those planning an extended trip in the region, whether by car, RV, or camper.
"The Milepost" in new or recent used condition is very highly recommended to the visitor to Alaska and Northwest Canada, which are some of the most scenic parts of North America. Don't miss the sights, and don't leave home without The Milepost.
