Once again thanks Gary from AK for this great idea for a posting. It’s that time of year when many of you will be heading up to Alaska for your own adventure. This time last year we were planning our own Northern excursion. So, we are envious of those who will be making this trip. The Dalton Highway is a MUST ride and getting yourself to Deadhorse in one piece would be the goal. ;-) Here is a great web site which has all the information you will need to learn about the Dalton and it’s services or should I say lack of services. Bring extra gas and enjoy this unpredictable yet beautiful highway!
I have also included some previous posts of ours that shows you where we stayed and a place where you can change your tires or oil!
