I have to take my wife up there at some point this spring/summer because I'm trying to convince her to make the move. I also promised a buddy that we'd take a motorcycle trip up there this year but don't have any dates planned yet.
I spent the months of August - November 2012 touring AK by motorcycle and didn't see the Northern Lights until October. These were taken October 12th and I was told they were the best they've been in 30-40 years in the Mat-Su valley.

Hey Brett...Spent a lot of time in Brandon/Jackson area. My former business partner lives there. He owns T. Ables footwear store in the North Park area. Anyway my plans are to leave Nashville on Tuesday June 11th and ride up through Regina, Edmonton, etc to Beaver Creek YT the cross into Alaska to spend 13 days roaming around and then return down BC 37 Cassiar hiway to 16 east over to Jasper/Banff NP then back into the US through Roosville MT to Glacier NP. From Glacier NP head to the house. Hope to do this in 31 days. I have campground reservations in Denali, Jasper/Banff and Glacier so am kind of stuck with these dates. Let me know if you are interested?
