RE: A bit of the Dempster Highway

The Dempster is in great shape this year. It was an easier drive than the North Klondike Highway last week.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

It is a big enough deal that your RV can be seized at the border, along with the firearm. The law allows for any vehicle to be impounded if it is used for the crime. There's an auction each year of seized items, so folks can get some good stuff at reduced cost. My hubby's cousin experienced this first hand, at the Peace Arch crossing. He tried to convince the border agents that he forgot he had the handgun in his RV's center console. That didn't work.

RE: How old is your fifth-wheel?

Our 2003 fifth wheel is the perfect rig for us. We've maintained it diligently since buying it. Haven't seen anything that we'd prefer. 25' long, no slides, rear kitchen, easily towed with our F250 7.3L PSD. Both have done thousands of miles of gravel roads and goat trails. We expect to do many more.

RE: Klondike Highway

We just came off the North Klondike. Generally in good condition, but some of those long & new construction zones are wicked-muddy due to rain in the area. If the spots dry up it isn't so bad BUT today it was WET. Also go slow through the active construction zones; the graders are creating rows that are high and hard to cross and they don't care who is coming & going by them as they grade. We got pinched off by a roadside barrier and the grader, which made for some fun.

RE: Blacking out the light???

Styrofoam insulation, cut to snug fit into place. Leave a little slot on one side so you can pull it out easily when you prefer to have the light. Easy to store, lightweight too. This is also a good thing when camping in winter, to keep the cold out.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

It's convenient for us locals to have a single spot to put updates about conditions or emerging situations, knowing those that are on their journey will likely check into that spot. Makes it convenient for us.

RE: Dirtbike behind 5th wheel

Hubby's trials bike is 160 lbs. Here's his solution; he designed the platform and we had a local welding shop put it together. The skidplate bolts to the middle hump-thing. Both ties are strapped to the carrier too. Have been over thousands of miles of gravel road and Alaska Highway frost heaves without a problem. When the bike isn't on the rack, it makes a nice sitting platform with a built in table! http://yukonsights.ca/images/RV/20110603_MCCarrier_001.jpg width=700 http://yukonsights.ca/images/RV/20110603_MCCarrier_003.jpg width=500 http://yukonsights.ca/images/RV/20110617_MCCarrier_003.jpg width=700 http://yukonsights.ca/images/RV/20110617_MCCarrier_010.jpg width=700 http://yukonsights.ca/images/RV/20110619_MCRack.jpg width=700 http://yukonsights.ca/images/RV/20110619_MCRack2.jpg width=700

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

Yeah, Tombstone is an amazing spot to camp. Good hiking trails there too, the North Klondike River trail off the campground is an easy go and scenic.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

An update this afternoon from the Sockeye Fire facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Sockeye-Fire Crews are continuing to work along the perimeter of the Sockeye Fire today as well as in subdivisions within the interior, using everything from heavy equipment, to hand tools, to aircraft and boats. Residents in the area may see a decrease in smoke, but there is active fire within the perimeter and current weather conditions can quickly lead to dangerous fire conditions. There is still much work to be done to make the area safe!

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2016

I am planning on 60-75 days is BC, AK, and AB. Don't forget Yukon (YT). Unless you take the ferry or fly, you can't get to Alaska without driving our roads and seeing our sights :)

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

Quoting AK Fire Info: June 15, 2015 by Alaska Division of Forestry 7:45 p.m. – An explosive wildland fire on the Kenai Peninsula forced the evacuation of hundreds of homes and burned at least six structures on Monday. The 640-acre Card Street Fire was reported as a 1-acre fire by Alaska State Troopers at 1:52 p.m. near the community of Sterling. The fire was burning in grass in an area accessible only by four-wheeler. Firefighters from the Alaska Division of Forestry’s Kenai are office responded by helicopter, engines and four-wheelers but the fire had spread to 4 acres and was growing by the time they arrived. The fire was actively torching and crowning in trees when firefighters arrived. Approximately 200 homes were threatened by the fire and firefighters and Alaska State Troopers immediately began evacuation procedures using a reverse 911 call to inform residents in the area of the situation. It’s unclear at this point whether the structures burned were homes, outbuildings or other types of structures.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

There's now a wildfire on the Kenai too. Check the reports before heading that way. http://akfireinfo.com/

RE: Parks Hwy closed north of Anchorage AK - WILDFIRE-June 14

This afternoon the highway closed again because the fire moved back to the highway. The fire is 0% contained within the entire perimeter and continues to be a major problem at the location it started. Which is, BTW, just four miles from my friend's house. She's monitoring the scanner to keep up-to-date and is packed ready to evacuate. Her whole neighborhood has evacuated but she has chosen to stay back and is prepared to leave at a moment's notice. The Alaska State Troopers have her cell phone number to give her notice to go, if she hasn't already. She's been posting numerous pictures on facebook of the view from her house. ON EDIT: my friend just posted that she is having to evacuate. The fire is heading north towards her place due to a shift in the wind. Emergency crews have also been moved further north due to the danger.

RE: Parks Hwy closed north of Anchorage AK - WILDFIRE-June 14

12:30 a.m. , June 15 – The fast-moving Sockeye Fire, burning along the Parks Highway in the Willow area, is now estimated at 6,500 acres. The evacuation area has been expanded to cover the area from Milepost 63 to 77, and from three miles east of the Parks Highway and west to the Susitna River. The Parks Highway remains closed from Milepost 66 through 77. The Alaska Division of Forestry, Department of Transportation, and Alaska State Troopers are working together to reopen the highway as quickly as possible. Read more at: http://akfireinfo.com/

Parks Hwy closed north of Anchorage AK - WILDFIRE-June 14

The Parks Highway is closed between mile 71 and 78 due to a wildfire that has burned an estimated 1,000 acres. This is the area around Willow AK. ON EDIT: MILE 66 TO 77 WAS EVACUATED WITH 6,500 ACRE BURNED AS OF MIDNIGHT Residents have been evacuated and more are on evacuation alert so it's possible the campgrounds in the area will be full too. A news article: www.ktuu.com/fire-crews-responding-to-wildfire-near-parks-highway Here's links to check for updates: http://akfireinfo.com/ http://511.alaska.gov/alaska511/mappingcomponent/index http://afsmaps.blm.gov/imf_fire/imf.jsp?site=fire

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

A quick heads up tonight...the Parks Highway north of Anchorage (to Fairbanks) is CLOSED at mile 71 to mile 77 due to a wildfire. It has burned 500 acres and possibly up to 1,000 acres. It jumped the highway. If you're planning to head from Anchorage to Fairbanks tomorrow (Monday, June 15), maybe rethink that plan. If you're on facebook, keep up-to-date here Matanuska-Susitna Borough facebook page. You can also check in with the Alaska State Troopers. I expect this might put a crunch on the RV parks in the area too as many residents are having to evacuate.
