 Pick-up a side car and get Fish on your way up, his good at getting air matresses pumped up by the locals up there. Then again , that may not be such a good idea, ya might have ta share accomodations... A motel does sound wiser after thought.  :)

I thought the air mattress in the car under Jeff's oaks was a nice spot to. I never had an ache nor pain. ;D

The stump jumpers with their travel trailer made fine neighbors to.

The final morning I saw Fish and Raider_Bill both scrambling to get their gear packed up when that thunderstorm rolled in. Old Dang was more interested in the coffee pot. Course he had a dry van for accommodations. :D ;)

For showers, I thought $5 down the road at the campground (can't remember the name) was a good deal. Can wash clothes there to I think. Jeff can probably remember the name of the place, I told him I went down there.

Bought plane tix this morning. Now to find a hotel. I'd hate to think what it would cost to fly with camping gear per bag.

I think pigman is staying at the little acorn motel about a mile or so from the house. The bigger nicer hotels are in Clare.

We can't make it this year but if we were driving, it'd take us a while to get there...

Google's estimate must be straight driving time!  They claim I can make 3,587 miles in 3 days flat.  However, when I was much younger and drove up from Colorado, it took 3.5 days, driving ~16 hours per day, with an average speed of ~85 mph.

Is the Alaskan highway that good that you could drive those speeds? I thought much of it was dirt.

The majority is paved now but even so, 85+ mph is much too fast to be driving.  As stated, it was a long time ago and I was very immature.
