    We are looking at a back up plan as well for the summer, too many beautiful places in Canada to miss due to direct routes. I really hope it opens up but I'm not banking on it. We are considering hitting all the places we were going to see in the lower 48 out west. Depends if the National Parks are open.

    Yes Alaskans and Military have been able to go from Alaska to the lower 48 but it's on a well defined route with a time limit. My understanding is your reason for the travel was limited, No playing tourist. I have seen Canadian news reports about people from the states getting ticketed for going to Banff and other tourist places on the pretense of going to Alaska for a valid reason.

    I thought I read somewhere that only Alaska residents could drive from one part of Alaska to the other part going through British Columbia. I know they closed all the provincial campgrounds in British Columbia to non residents. I could be mistaken though.

    Has something recently changed? I thought one was allowed to ride through Canada to reach Alaska. I thought there were certain restrictions, like one needed to travel via certain ports to get into Canada.

    Ya, It's been a crazy summer. I never even got my Leesure Lite out of the garage. I did put 11,000 kms on my bike, but mostly only out on day trips. When on one ride down to Toronto to visit my Mother, put on 4000 kms. That was a nice trip along the north shore of Lake Superior, Canada side.

    @fireshine I am not sure if your planning on camping but more bad news. BC just announced that they are closing all Provincial campgrounds for the summer to non-residents.

    The governor has said Alaska is going to the next phase of opening up on Friday. Just about all businesses, Churches, museums can open. Face coverings and social distancing and hand washing still applies. The 14 day quarantine still is in effect but they are reviewing it weekly. There is talk that the quarantine will be modified by June 1st. We will see what happens.
    I follow Canadian news almost as much as the US news and I think the Canadian Provinces and the Yukon Territory will be a bigger obstacle on your ride than Alaska will be.

    Where did you see that? The 30 day extension expires on the 18th. I have not seen anything saying they are going to open it. I believe Alaska, Yukon, BC and maybe Alberta along with most community's all have 14 day quarantines for any travelers. It could take two months to get here...
