RE: Readying TT for ALASKA Trip

Don't believe the doom and gloom sayers! The trip is somewhat remote in places but not a problem if you SLOW DOWN and enjoy the trip. I did put some 3m type film on the lower front of the 5er, not sure if it prevented any gravel chips or not. Again, just match speed to conditions, it's not a race. We drove up and back in 2016 and cracked our windshield in Montana. I carried an extra 5 gal gas can; a spare tire for the 5er and pickup; and an extra unmounted tire for the 5er and pickup. Never used any of it but it was comforting to know I had the backup. ENJOY!

RE: Glacier NP red bus tours

Yes to the Red Bus! The drivers are EXCELLENT guides that give out much info about Glacier and everything you see. If it's cold they will provide heavy wool blankets and, if rainy, they do close the top. Very unusual to be extremely warm in Glacier and at those altitudes. Going to the Sun road is a beautiful drive but it's a lot nicer to not have to do the driving.

RE: Alt Route to Edmonton

Agree with your plan to cross at a smaller, less busy crossing. They are generally more casual and quicker to cross. We crossed at Sherwood in 2016. If I remember correctly the first 20 or so miles north were kinda worn and we drove slower for a while - this trip is no race! Our route then angled northwest across Saskatchewan and we worked our way to the north of Edmonton, avoiding city traffic. Tough to find places to boondock but as others have said, many towns have small city campgrounds and generally the Canadian provincial parks are very nice and well-maintained. Enjoy!

RE: Anchorage Campgrounds, bad as they say?

Agree with staying at Eagle River Campground. We stayed there twice on our Alaska trip in 2016. It's primitive (no hookups) but all paved, level sites with good space between sites. Not that far to drive into either Eagle River or Anchorage.

Summer of '18 we used Fantasy Tours for the Calgary Stampede in Alberta. The campground was set up in a football stadium parking lot; power and water worked great and they had a honeywagon visit mid-week. They were very well organized and all details worked out great. They arranged transportation to Stampede grounds, ticket access for several events, a side tour to Banff. It was very convenient to have all those details covered for such a large and crowded event. Can't think of any negatives from this trip.
