It’s just about time for the first wave of RVers to head North to Alaska. If you are just in the planning stages of this lifetime adventure RV road trip, you’ll want to pick up a copy of “The 2017 Milepost,” the ‘Bible of North Country Travel.’
This more than 700-page guidebook has been mandatory reading for everyone headed to Alaska, the Yukon Territory, British Columbia, Alberta and the Northwest Territories.
Since 1949, experienced RV travelers say: “Don’t leave the Lower 48 without it.” It lists eateries, fuel stations, lodging, camping, fishing, road conditions, bridges and ferries.
The 69th edition of The Milepost was updated in March 2017. Today’s Milepost includes more than 600 pictures and more than 100 maps.
