The June 8, 2008, Sunday Travel section of The Spokesman-Review has a terrific spread on ‘The Last Frontier’ including the “Wonders of Alaska” by Beth J. Harpaz of the Associated Press.
While most of us won’t be driving our RVs the traditional route this summer–up through British Columbia and along the Alaska Highway–there still might be a possibility to take your RV aboard the ferry through the Inland Passage.
The first place to start your research is Alaska Marine Highway System where you can obtain the latest information about sailings. Another site is Alaska Ferry Adventures.
Read how one Washington state couple, Cliff and Dixie Slator, ventured north to Alaska both overland through Canada and then by ferry from Prince Rupert, B.C. to Haines, Alaska.
Click on “RV couple blend their passions for fishing, painting.”
