    So a buddy and i are seriously considering taking a road trip to Alaska for the 3ish weeks in August. Have any of you guys done this before?? If so any specific spots we should make sure to see/lakes to fish etc. The intended goal is to make it to Alaska but this is also a fishing expedition that might just mean we get to Sask, and go from there. Planning on camping as much as possible, also thought of bringing a canoe or little boat, mainly something to just throw ontop of the vehicle, but at the same time it might just be easier to fish a bunch from shore, and then maybe rent a boat for the day at various lakes we might stop at…..Gas is gonna be killer but im selling my truck and probably will have to cut down on some of the fishing this summer, but i think this would be a camping trip of a lifetime….

    We did the trip in about 55 hours drive time from the cities but that was in the 70’s and the alcan was all gravel yet.

    I knew there was a reason I never returned after my freshman year.
