A friend and myself are going to be touring from Anchorage to Seattle this fall and I was hoping to draw on some of this forums knowledge to better prepare ourselves. I know that many people may say that that is too late in the year to tour that far north, but we are absolutely expecting to get snowed on at least once or twice on this trip, but this time frame was when we could make this trip work. Our route is to head north from anchorage to Tok where we will follow the Alcan to the Cassiar Hwy (Dease Lake). We'll follow this south to Yellowhead Hwy to Prince George at which point we will turn south on Cariboo Hwy. At this point we aren't sure if we'll ride the sea to sky hwy through whistler or stay on the east side of the coast range ( this way is a little shorter with less climbing) it will most likely depend on whether or not we're ahead or behind itinerary. We are planning on this taking 35 days and averaging ~70 miles per day. This will be a lot of new territory for both of us so I'm just looking for any info that you all have.
P.S. A little more info is that I have already found the milepost and plan on getting a copy to supplement our maps. I am a outdoor guide by profession and my friend is a competent outdoorsman so we are planning to camp most of the time with the potential to couchsurf in larger towns. We will be able to be fully self supported for upwards of 5-6 days, but I would like information on what the frequency of resupplies will be, no use carrying more food than necessary. I would also be interested to know info on road conditions and any other information that you all see as pertinent.
