  • Alcan in GREAT shape

    Came from NY to Alaska.......got in a little over a week ago. Alcan is in the best shape I have ever seen it in. No construction and decent pavement all the way. There is some bad potholes around Swift River area and about 20 miles of bad pavement before Beaver Creek. Tok cutoff between Tok and Glennallen sucks. That's about it. I was in a pickup with a camper......but no problems on a bike. I used diesel.....kind of expensive.....averaged around $1.35 a ltr cdn. Most was $1.499 at Toad River. They "say" fuel in BC is supposed to get high this summer.

        I'm planning on heading back up that way in 2020! The last part of the Alcan was the roughest part the last time I was there. The frog strangling rain didn't help.
