And Dusty. There is an island to the west of you if you need more miles in the bush or outback! Any Aussie treks to compare with Alaska?

Plenty of tracks here as far as the eyes can see up Northern Territory it gets interesting and central Australia definitely need 4wdrive

Wally Montana: That was indeed me that you talked to at our fuel stop in St. Mary's MT. The camper in your photo is the replacement for the Vanguard we took to Yukon and Alaska. It rotted away sitting in the rain in Seattle. I still have the Avion, sitting patiently waiting for its next trip. Aluminum won't rot. Main trans is out of the pickup at the moment to cure a noisy third gear. It spends a lot of time pulling hard in third gear and my hearing is not getting better. See some more photos in the "Camper' thread in General Truck Talk.

Since we're all dreaming of camper trips in our ADs, here's a couple suggestions.

Take the Alaska Ferry north to Haines or Skagway and, after seeing the rest of Alaska, return on the AlCan Highway. With a lot of planning, you can get civilized times for arrivals and departures for layovers. If you have the reservation for the way back, you might not be able to extend your stay.

When traveling the Going to the Sun highway and Logan Pass in Glacier NP, go from east to west in the early morning. The east side of the Rocky Mountains is generally more spectacular than the west side (continental lift makes it that way, I guess) and you'll have the morning sun at your back. Fantastic views staring you in the face. Of course, the virus has closed the east entrance right now.

Wally/Montana; We took the bikes off the back of the camper and started from St. Mary's one morning early and rode to the Logan Pass summit. That gave a lot of time to enjoy the views. On the way down we had to watch the road carefully because the construction left lots of areas of rough gravel. We'll make that trip again one day, though maybe not by bicycle.
