Bei milepost handelt es sich eine hervorragende Information über Alaska, Yukon usw. Es ist ein Standardwerk der Alaskareisenden mit vielen Informationen und eine sehr guten Preis- Leistungsverhältnis.

Das beste um Alaska mit dem Wohnmobil zu erkunden.
Die Milepost ist zwar so groß und schwer wie ein Telefonbuch, aber ein unbedingtes Muß,
für Reisende der Yukon und Alaska Routen.unentbehrlich.

Unverzichtbare Lektüre für einen Alaska-Urlaub mit dem Mietwagen. Jeder einzelne Strassenkilometer wird beschrieben. Auch ohne Reiseabsichten ist dies ein Buch zum Träumen von ALASKA.

On the Road to Northwest Canada and Alaska... 4. März 2011
Von D.S.Thurlow - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The 2011 edition of "The Milepost" is the most recent version of the most uniquely valuable travel guide to the road network in the State of Alaska and Northwest Canada (British Columbia, the Yukon, and Alberta provinces). This guide is a must-have resource for the tourist, RVer, and North Country camper.

Alaska and Northwest Canada cover a huge geographic area with significant terrain and weather variations and far less infrastructure than most travelers are used to in the lower '48 states or urban Canada. Travelers should not expect gas stations, restaurants, and franchise hotels at every exit off the main roads, nor should they expect that facilities, or even the roads themselves, are open year-round. Dangerous weather and driving conditions are possible to likely as much as six months of the year. In addition, travelers need to be alert to the prospects of wildlife viewing and the dangers of close encounters in the road.

"The Milepost" provides maps, diagrams, and an almost mile-by-mile travelogue of what to expect along the main roads in the North Country. "The Milepost" includes a generous selection of photographs as well. This detailed informaton will allow the traveler to locate the next gas station, campground, hotel, or scenic spot in areas where signs and billboards may be scarce. The text is seeded with advertisements for many of the commercial establishments along the Alaska Highway in Canada and the limited major road network in Alaska, allowing travelers to plan ahead for scarce beds and RV hook-ups. Travelers can also plan ahead for fishing charters on the world-famous Kenai Peninsula or the operating hours of the few but fascinating small museums and roadside attractions to be found along the way.

The annual updating of "The Milepost" assures the traveler of some advance notice for construction or major changes in the road network. "The Milepost" does contain some information on the locations of trailheads, but serious walkers and hikers, bikers, and snow machine enthusiasts should seek elsewhere for more detailed information about off-road routes. This guide includes scheduling information for the Alaska Marine Highway System of ferries linking coastal Alaska, and directions to the digital version of this guide.

This publication is very highly recommended to both the visitor and the resident in Alaska and Northwest Canada, which are some of the most scenic parts of North America. Don't leave home without it.

Not as amazing as everyone makes it out to seem 15. Mai 2011
Von Joseph D. Land - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
First, let me start by saying the good things about this guide. There are many lovely pictures in it and the maps are fantastic. The Dalton Highway Guide seems very useful and the introduction gives you a very good understanding of what you can expect on the highway as far as road conditions and boarder crossings.

However, there are some pretty HUGE flaws with this guide...

For starters, there is just TOO much POINTLESS information in this guide. The "mile by mile" guides of an over thousand mile highway seems great at first but when you actually get it in your hands you quickly realize that there is simply to much information to sift through in order to find what is valuable. I don't care that the guide points out that there is a turnout at 493.7 miles past Dawsons Creek (I have eyes to see it for myself) or that a bear took a dump at mile 567.2. What I would care about is having point out the dozens upon dozens of FREE CAMPING SITES along the way that could save a traveler hundreds of dollars along the coarse of their trip. Simply put... more is not always better and I think this guide could be a lot more useful if they filtered out 70% of the useless information and actually added in vital information. In the end, this is a guide is not actually meant for the financially savvy traveler as it only points out expensive hotels and campgrounds while ignoring the more economical options

Since, getting this guide I found a website called "Campscout.com" which allows you to search and find campsites and compare prices. Through hours of research I have found at least 50 campsites that are either free or under 10$. This will save me close to 900$ on my overall trip to Alaska.

I don't mean to completely knock this guide. It has it's usefulness and I would encourage any Alaska bound traveler to get a copy but I am just saying that it is not a "must have, "bible" of North Country travel.

Love this book 23. April 2011
Von Leann Peek - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
We have traveled between AK and WA many times, and this book is always a key part of our trip. Whether we are planning to make it a straight-through drive with as few stops as possible, or if we feel like taking the scenic route and having a little fun along the way - The Milepost is always helpful and educational. The guide is loaded with everything from where gas stations and rv parks/hotels are located to where museums and worthy off the road stops are and even descriptions of different flowers and animals seen in one place vs another. Because it is updated annually, supposedly by real people who actually travel the road each year, very few times have we ever found outdated info.

I love how it is a true milepost # by milepost # type set-up. We never have to guess how far to the next stop or break. It can be awkward if you have to read the chapters backwards - depending on if you are traveling North or South, but once that is figured out, all is good.

I am on Amazon now purchasing this book for a relative traveling to AK this summer. Amazon has the cheapest price I've found.

Always a great publication 1. April 2011
Von Kindle Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
It's much more than just a travel guide. You can learn so much about the variety of ways to get to Alaska as well as what you can see and experience on your trip. Plus you can learn about things to do and see once you get there. We are headed back there a 3rd time and can't imagine doing it without this book. Once you have the book, you can access a digital version either online or download a PDF.

It provides excellent suggestions, recommendations and descriptions of things to do and see while headed to or visiting Alaska.

On the Road in Alaska and Northwest Canada... 3. März 2012
Von D.S.Thurlow - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The 2012 edition of "The Milepost" is the latest edition of a uniquely useful travel guide to the limited road network in Alaska and the Northwest Canada provinces of British Columbia, the Yukon, and Alberta. This guide is a must-have resource for those planning an extended trip, whether by car, RV, or camper.

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

"The Milepost" offers maps, diagrams, and a nearly mile-by-mile travelogue for the main roads of the North Country, along with a generous selection of photographs and adverts for attractions, accomodations, and other travel facilities. It is a terrific planning resource for finding the next gas station, museum, scenic overlook, or even "the world's best cinnamon buns" in a vast area where signs and billboards may be scarce. Travelers can and should plan ahead for limited hotel beds, RV hook-ups, and campground spaces. Visitors can also plan ahead for delights such as fishing charters on the world famous Kenai Peninsula or the operating hours of some fascinating small museums, hot springs, wildlife parks, and other roadside attractions.

"The Milepost" is updated annually to assure the traveler of reasonably current information about construction, ferry schedules and the like. "The Milepost" can also be a guide to the location of opportunities for hiking, fishing, biking and snow machining, although additional local information is recommended. This guide includes scheduling information for the Alaska Marine Highway System of ferries linking coastal Alaska.

"The Milepost" is very highly recommended to both the visitor and the resident of Alaska and Northwest Canada, which are some of the most scenic parts of North America. Don't leave home without it.
