    Have you priced that puppy lately?

    Sheesh, I could almost buy a plane and fly there cheaper. :lol3

    edit: Just did a quick check on pricing for the ferry. From Bellingham, WA to Ketchikan, AK is $544 one way. That doesn't include if you want a cabin. Trip takes 1 day, 13 hours. And price is "estimated".

    They are pretty proud of that ferry ride, aren't they. I have been thinking about riding to Alaska and had wondered about taking the ferry. That has to be close to a buck a mile, with a big room with a view, called the deck. Guess I can push that out of my mind unless I win the lottery.

    Price fuel, tires, meals, and lodging for the Canadian portion of the AlCan Highway and you might rethink that. 1 day and 13 hours for 662 miles is a bit slow.

    Morning all. The gimp is feeling good so far. I got to make her breakie to keep her happy.
    She can't shower for 2 days, and she is less than impressed about my elaborate preparations and accessories assembled for her sponge bath. ;)

    Haha...Tim, yeah it was probably the "accessories" that worried her. Glad she is doing better. :D

    A friend of mine made the trip to Prudhoe Bay this summer. Took him 37 days, 10K miles, and $7K, roughly. His only gripe about going through Canada was not being able to bring a sidearm. And lack of cell phone coverage.

    I'm not sure what a cabin costs on the ferry, but you can pitch a tent on deck. The downside to that is that you can't peg the tent down. The Milepost, a very informative publication is very helpful for making the trip to AK. Dr. Greg Frazier has also written a very good book about his travels up north. Riding to Alaska is the name of his book.

    Steve, my buddy who went this past summer, rode a 1200GSA up there. He mounted Heidenau K60's on the bike. Ran the front one for the entire trip. Had a rear drop shipped to a shop in Anchorage and had it mounted when he got there. Seems like the largest expense per item/service was for lodging. He did camp some but bears kept him just a bit leery about camping very much.

    And Cycle World currently has an article about a fella riding a Vespa scooter from FL to AK. That is an adventure for sure!
