Info on accommodation along the route is really useful as well, from this side of the world your report is a God send for my planning. Cheers...
The Milepost was a good way to look up routes and hwys as well as some info on stops.

The Alaska Bureau of Land Management has a nice visitor guide for the Dalton Highway. It has all the stops and mileage along the route and you have to be able to make the 250 miles from Coldfoot to Deadhorse without fuel. The Alaska tourism folks sent it to me as well as info on Fairbanks. I used the links below.

Yukon Territories also sent me some information by mail.

I stopped at the information centers at Dawson Creek BC, and Watson Lake YT. Both were very good with lots of info. I got the mileage sheet for the Alcan at Dawson Creek. Watson Lake had mileage sheets for Dempster and Campbell Hwys. Some of the other places had less info.
