This may be the biggest book you’ve ever read. It is also, by far, the most comprehensive and invaluable tome when navigating the Alaska Highway. When traveling throughout Alaska and northwestern Canada, The Milepost, a much-needed Bible since 1949, is the book to have under your arm-or car seat.

In its 64th edition, The Milepost is the “essential guide” for Alaska travelers, since 1949. This edition is edited by Kris Valencia, and with nearly 700 color photos and 100 maps to edit, her job is a big one. According to Valencia, “traveling the Alaska Highway is worth the price, and the memories are worth the mileage.”

This reviewer can attest to that. Taking off on my big adventure in 1972, a friend and I traveled from Chicago, IL to Fairbanks, AK and back. With dozens of stops along the way-and only one flat tire-we drove 28,500 miles in 28 days.  At that time, the famous Highway was not all paved; much of it gravel. Now, the Highway is paved, all    miles of it, which probably means the trip is a little faster.

Covering some 14,000 miles of road, The Milepost lists detailed descriptions of all the communities along the way, a mile-by-mile log of all Northern routes and attractions inboth Alaska and northwestern Canada. When traveling the Alaska Highway, we found the mile-by-mile logs extremely helpful; particularly, when in need of a fuel stop and/or eating establishment. We had our camping sites scheduled ahead of time, which helped, but referred to Milepost time after time when searching for suggestions about where to stop and/or eat.  I have kept my original Milepost, which in the 1970s was a considerably smaller version.

As I did when traveling in Alaska, The Milepost recommends all travelers carefully plan their itineraries ahead of time. For instance, if you are traveling in a good size RV, you will find there are extended parking areas available most everywhere along the way.  Travelers can also combine road travel with the Alaska state ferry system and the Alaska Railroad. We triedbooking the Ferry before we left town and even at that time, there was no more room available. In 2012, I suspect this is more of a problem, due to far more travelers to Alaska.

Readers and travelers needn’t purchase The Milepost only if they are planning a trip to Alaska. On the contrary, for the armchair traveler alike, The Milepost is just great fun to read and peruse. There is so much contained in this travel planner, it is great reading. You will learn a lot.

4.0 von 5 Sternen North to Alaska! 16. März 2014
Von Laura - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I might have given this book a 5 star rating because it is chock full of great information and very comprehensive, but I had the advantage of reading The Milepost 2013 edition and it is a better value. It can be purchased for less money, has more pages, was printed on better quality paper and has some prettier photographs. Buy last year's edition since whatever the "improvements" are, it's too hard to tell. In fact, I wonder why this book is published every year instead of every 2-4 years. My 2014 edition has fewer pages than the 2013 edition (graciously loaned by a friend which is why I wanted my own book). The seemingly thinner pages --yes, hard to believe -- result in the pages rippling instead of being completely smooth. For me it is annoying see pages that are akin to have been wet then dried. It's not that bad, but the best way to describe the ripple look. Buy a Milepost book, just don't feel you have to have this year's edition to get great info.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Exploring Alaska and Northwest Canada... 3. März 2014
Von D.S.Thurlow - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
The 2014 version of "The Milepost" is the 66th edition of a uniquely useful travel guide to the limited road network in Alaska, the Yukon, and the northern portions of the Canadian provinces of British Columbia and Alberta, along with the principal access routes to the area. The guide also includes seasonal road access routes in the Northwest Territories of Canada. It also includes basic information for the Alaska Marine Ferry System, a way to see Southeast Alaska from the water and take your vehicle with you. This guide is a must-have resource for those planning an extended trip in the region, whether by car, RV, or camper.

Alaska and Northwest Canada are a huge area, with rugged terrain and significant weather variations, and far less travel infrastructure than most travelers are used to in urban Canada or the lower '48 states in the US. Visitors should not expect gas stations, restaurants, and franchise motels at every exit from the main roads. They should not even expect that facilities, or even the roads themselves, will be open year-round. In fact, dangerous weather and driving conditions can be expected as much as six months of the year in some parts of Alaska and northern Canada. In addition, travelers need to be alert to the hazards of close encounters with wildllife, natural hazards such as avalanches, and even the landing of private planes on the road.

"The Milepost" offers a mile-by-mile travelogue for the main roads of the North Country, along with maps, diagrams of some key towns, photographs, and advertisements for attractions, accomodations, and other travel facilities. It is a terrific planning resource for areas that have much to offer, including small delights that might not make it into guide books. It lists the next gas station, some small but worthwhile museums, scenic overlooks of glaciers, historical markers, and even unique restaurants specializing in local wild catch or "the world's best cinnamon buns." Visitors can and should plan ahead for such delights as fishing charters on the world-famous Kenai Peninsula or the operating hours of hot springs, wildlife parks, and ferries.

"The Milepost" is updated annually to assure the traveler of reasonably up to date information about construction, changing schedules for the Alaska Marine Highway System of ferries, and the like. The guide can also show the way to recreational opportunities for hiking, fishing, camping, biking, and snow machining. "The Milepost" is very highly recommended to the visitor and the resident of Alaska and Northwest Canada, which are some of the most scenic parts of North America. Don't miss the sights, and don't leave home without The Milespost.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The only way to go when driving the Alcan. 5. März 2014
Von Don Poole - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I chose the Milepost because it has been the standard for anyone driving the Alcan. My wife and I plan to drive our camper and take our time as we move back to Alaska. We are also taking the inland ferry so we can enjoy some of the scenery and native towns along the way. We ordered the 2011 Milepost also but things change along the way and we wanted to get the latest information and items of interest. I very much recommend buying the latest Milepost for anyone driving the Alcan. It will help you enjoy your long drive.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Maybe it used to be better 24. August 2014
Von Casitan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
The cruel joke is that there are no (or very few) mileposts on the Alaska Highway anymore and trying to use this book will drive you crazy. There is some good information if you take the time to tediously tease it out. However, it seems that it only includes that which business owners have paid to have listed.. Guide to the Alaska Highway is not as inclusive, but it is better and more readable.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Some entries are extremely out of date. 3. Oktober 2014
Von Mom - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Driving along the Alcan, we thought this book would help us to know what would be coming up along the way. Many times, though, it would list a business that had been closed, obviously for many years. We specifically bought the 2014 edition, but might as well have bought a used one several years old.
