Go anywhere but make sure you're prepared enough.

Enough of this fun.
Now for those who know Canada?
I want to cross the border on 4th of July weekend, that comes on Thursday.
Would Saturday be a low traffic day?
Do we expect any extra traffic on the 4th in Canada at all?


In Canada, July 4th is just the day between the 3rd and the 5th!
I suppose it could be a little busier with a few Americans crossing the border to eat poutine and drink real beer. However wouldn't most be wanting to stay at home and spend the day saluting the flag and eating hot dogs?

Tardis, I've read there's gas and diesel available on the Dalton Highway at Cold Foot about 1/2 way to the arctic circle. Can you confirm?

RECOMMENDED FUEL STOPS ON VANCOUVER ROUTE
I used gas buddy to plan my fuel stops and avoid paying the high prices, while not running dry on fuel shortages.
Canadians don't post prices very often, so took me return trip to fill the holes.
Those are the points that worked for me and the highest price I paid come to US$4.30 for a gallon of diesel.
Here is the chart that shows the city, distance from last one and local price.
Anchorage $2.69 Costco
Tok 313 $3.19
Haines Junction 290 $134 north cardlock
Whitehorse 95 $140
Dease Lake 405 $146
Hazelton 334 $125
Smithers 60 $131
Prince George 230 $122 Costco
Quesnel 75 $120
Williams Lake, BC 80 $113 Esso 5 km east
Gasoline prices have the same relation, so you can use the locations the same way.
My truck/camper makes 340 miles on its tank, so couple of cans helped on long stretches in Yukon.

Yes there is. Fbx, Coldfoot and Deadhorse are the only 3 fuel locations on or near the Dalton.
And there's only 1 retail fuel depot in Deadhorse.
