Alaska by RV (Paperback)
My wife and I had long dreamed of traveling to Alaska. I retired in 2006, we purchased a motor home in 2007, and in 2008 we made our dream come true. You can too This book recounts our 5-month long, 8,700-mile trip from Milwaukee to Fairbanks and back in day-by-day detail. It tells of the amazing sights we saw and the surprises we found, both positive and negative. It includes several humorous tales of the road and describes some mistakes we made and things we wish we had done better. It is, in summary, the book I wish I had been able to read before we left home. The book provides maps that show where we went and includes over 230 photographs of our journey. It discusses the preparations we made and discloses not only our budget for the trip, but the amounts we actually spent and what we spent them on. And at the back, it lists the places we went and the campgrounds we used together with addresses, phone numbers, websites and geo coordinates.
