In 2010 I rode to Alaska and had way more cause to be nervous - especially through the Yukon Territories.

often not the case
I came across many service stations that were abandoned, out of fuel, closed because it was after 6pm and/or because it was a Sunday. I learned that just because there's an indicator on the highway sign or AAA map does not mean there's fuel available.

I agree with ROUK that there's better/more accurate information available here.
