Starting on August 17 will be an interesting trip. I left Skagway for WA on 8/17 and most of the CGs on the Alaskan Highway were closed and very few tourists. We were the only rig at one CG and I asked when they would close - "As soon as we run out of fuel." All of their AC power was from a generator but he was referring to the fuel pumps.

For some of us the style of travelling involves alot of dry camping in places where there is NO cell service or WIFI. We have been over a week of basically no internet access. The past 3 nights have been out at the Teklaneka CG in Denali. No nothing there. Wonderful. Currently in Wassila for a laundry evening then Eagle SP for a couple nights for truck oil change, DW nails done & a grocery stockup for Kenai.

We are in Dawson City, YT. Came up the Cassier with side trips to Stewart, Hyder, and Atlin. Heading up the Dempster tomorrow for Inuvik and possibly Tut, then back and into AK a few days later. Lost rear passenger bin door on Hwy 2 to Dawson.

Veebyes you are the first one to say anything about changing oil on you tow truck.

The wife and I are heading to Alaska next year and I will be changing my oil some where along the way.

Along with other things (air filter, full filters).

Changing oil & carrying the necessary filters is good insurance for trouble free travel

How do you dispose of used oil? Are there that many places to do so?

Pioneer Village Campground, I think I got it correct, in Whitehorse, Yukon has facilities where you can change your own oil. At least I did it there several years ago.
in 2016 I had my oil changed in Fairbanks, AK at a Liffy lube.

In the US, if they sell it, they have to take used back. Any automotive store or shop will normally accept it no questions asked. In the Anchorage area the landfill and transfer stations all have free oil recycling dump stations.
