I'll be done school for the year at the end of May, so at the beginning of June, before i begin work I'd like to go for a trip. I went down the coast to LA this previous summer and now I'm thinking about heading north. I have seen little of BC, just the bit driving to Calgary and the SW areas. So I'd like to see what BC has to offer as well as Alaska.
I have an 2004 Suzuki GS500, so I'll be more or less comfortable with a decent distance per tank. I remember seeing threads of someone else on this forum who had gone to Prudhoe Bay, and I was curious if there were tips about heading up there I should know about.
I know that the moquitoes will be huge, and maybe numerous
I know that the road could be rough at times
I know that there could be long distances without gas stations
I'm wanting to go to Denali National Park. I'm an avid mountaineer, so I'd like to check it out. I've read that it's viscously busy in the summer, so I may just see it from a distance and not pay the $30 to sit on a bus and get driven around in the park (it's a very exclusive/environmentally friendly National Park it seems)
This is my rough route. I want to backtrack as little as possible, so when I could I've gone back a slightly different way.
Tips are appreciated! Thanks
