ALASKA or Bust

I've been getting ready for months. Leaving Monday, May 25 AM.
Two spares for trailer, two Honda 2000is on rear carrier, satellite mount. Installed new 1500 watt inverter with 3 deep cycle batteries so we can run TV and sat and heater for 2-3 days without recharging. Couple hours in the PM.
Generators just when needed. Taking Polaris RZR for ATV trips. Train trips and others reserved. First reservations June 10, at Denali Nat park, so plenty time to see Canada etc before then. Plan on being back in Texas around July 5-6.
I will start a new post and update daily,if I have service, for anyone wanting to follow along. I can send GPS tracker and glympse for anyone wanting realtime.

Awesome trip. We flew there a few years back, and rented a MH. Would love to go back.

Make sure to secure those genies, or they might grow legs, and wonder off.

We will be making a similar trek in July, but starting from FL. I like the hitch rack idea. I need to source a spare and a few gas cans.

I welded my on receiver on and re-drilled the rack hole so it pushes right up to the bumper and then I used some angle iron and screwed them to each other so there is no movement.

The RZR will take the place of the golf cart.

My Greyhawk has a hitch, but no spare, so I might see if I can get a custom hitch mounted tire and gas can carrier.

Keep us posted. Been saying I'm going to go for the last year or so.

May you have a safe and enjoyable trip.
