Is anyone interested in driving up to Alaska with me!?!? I was thinking of Spring 2021. I have a 2007 Ford Escape. I drove up last spring and spent the summer up there. I drove back down from there also. So I'm experienced with the conditions and area. We would share travel expenses. Which includes lodging, gas, food/water, and car repairs if any. I already have a route going up with places to see. If anyone is interested private message me for more info!
What a fabulous idea!!! I can't wait to hear about your adventure!!

This is what I came up with for my new road trip. This itinerary is not set in stone.
I recommend that you take extra time in Glacier and Banff at least. If you like to hike it would be a shame to just drive through without taking time to explore on foot, those parks are some of the best in the world. Just my opinion having been there.
@MrPaul thanks. I was planning on spending about a week at each national park. Those are just the places that I have planned to go to. I went to Theodore Roosevelt National Park last spring and I really liked it a lot.
Glacier Garden Rainforest was AMAZING! I don't know if that was on the list or not.
@OhioMike no it's not.
I'm from Alaska originally and I so love the sound of that!
One of my favorite cuddlers is up there. 😉 I'll hopefully do a trip to Alaska in 2022 in my motorhome. I have to be realistic. That's a lot of miles from the East coast, ha. 😇
When I was up in Alaska. I actually did see a lot of plates from the northeast and from Florida.
I travel very slow in my motorhome... 150-200 miles a day preferably. Very leisurely, lol. I definitely want to go up there. It just won't be until then I am sure. This year I'm returning to new England (and going to the Midwest). Next year I want to make it out west, then maybe Alaska the next year...
Ok. Yeah, since you have a motorhome. You can take your time to get to Alaska.
😇 Definitely a different way of traveling...
I guess that no one wants to be my travel buddy.
Sounds fun but i am sure most of us arent able to just take off to Alaska for weeks at a time
Oh bummer! Mister Teddy bear already deleted.... I was imagining he would find someone sooner or later....
Question.... Can anyone take over the thread and rename it once the OP has deleted his account?
@teddybear934 that sounds like so much fun! I have a Honda Pilot and cant wait to also road trips. 😊
