"...I recently received a review copy of 64th edition ofThe MILEPOST and it's got me Alaska dreaming again. In fact, I'm absolutely giddy right now as I'm flipping through the pages of this colorful, information-packed publication. The guide, which has been publishing since 1949, is known in the RV world as an indispensable part of an RVer's tool kit on one's journey into the north country....Not only does it feature mile-by-mile highway logs, but it's filled with everything you could ever want or need to know about traveling to any of the areas mentioned above. And I mean everything! Want to know all the major routes to take?The MILEPOST has it. How about interesting side trips? It's got those too. Distance in miles from city to city? Yep, it's in there. It even has a ferry travel section--complete with ferry schedules--so you can plan that part of your travel too. While The MILEPOSTis the perfect companion to RV travel, it covers all kinds of travel including by car, plane or cruise ship.
Sure, The MILEPOST can be a little overwhelming at first--especially for those of us who have never actually been to Alaska. But just spend enough time with it--and believe me, when you get your hands on this you will--and you'll get a feel for how it works.
Now that I'm scooting a trip to Alaska from the back burner to one of the front burners, I'm glad I have this incredibly useful guide at my fingertips to help make the journey as smooth as possible once I take it. "
