Okay...I know 2017 hasn't even taken off, but those of you that remember me from Roll Call 2013 know that I plan well ahead of time, lol.
4 years is way too long to go without being in Alaska so we are heading up again. This time my sister (Barbara), her husband (Pat) and their baby poodle (Koko) are going with us with their Bounder. We are planning to leave from Bullhead City, AZ around the end of May.
Would love to get a roll call started if anyone else out there is as much of an early planner as I am.
For those of you heading up this year, have a safe and wonderful trip and maybe you will enjoy it so much that you will join us in 2018. [emoticon]

JANETRUPP, We're planning on our first Alaska Highway trip, summer 2018. In fact, already doing some preventative maintenance to our 5th wheel and truck. Hoping to minimize some of the issues that may arise. Just purchased The Milepost and another book for the trip. Going to get passports soon, once I perfect my alias [emoticon] memtb

wow, I'm not the only early bird out there. As soon as we get more people signed up I will get a list going so we will know who is traveling with us.
In the past we made a sign for the window of our MH just stating "Roll Call Alaska 2018" and our name and our rv.net name. This way people that we have been internet chatting with may catch us on the road.

Welcome aboard and have fun with the planning. That is half the fun.

Jane, we plan on going back in 2018. We will leave a little earlier than you. We have to be in Wasilla for Memorial Day weekend. Usually leave Fort Worth, TX the middle of April and meander our way north!

You got lots of good tips on your last 'Roll Call' which is now a 'Sticky' on the top of this forum page. Everyone should read them!!

Wow, sounds like great fun. We are full timers also, headed to Canada this summer but not Alaska yet. We will be leaving Bothell, WA on June 11 to enter BC, then go as far East as we can get. (We have a rally in August in Indiana).
We have cruised 2x to Alaska. Driving it is on our bucket list. Like you, we are planners. So, Canada in 2017, going back to Europe in 2018, hoping for Alaska in 2019!
Have a great trip! Hope you post lots so we follow along!

This is Barbara (Janet's sister) We are looking forward to our first visit to Alaska in 2018 with my sister Janet and brother-in-law Gary. If anyone has any tips for me, it would be greatly appreciated. (places to eat, places to camp at & Tips on how to navigate this site, etc.) I love the sign in the window idea. Go "Roll call Alaska 2018".
