My Inlaws are full time RVers traveling through Alaska as we speak.
Here is a part of an e-mail they sent this morning. I wondered if any of you have ridden the top of the world highway.
They are traveling in a 34 foot class A motorhome pulling a Honda CRV.
We are in Chicken, Alaska arriving here a little while ago over the Top of the World hwy.
Be assured it is the last time we will travel that road....it was the worst godawful road I have ever been on - 100 miles of gravel and dirt full of potholes and washerboard and dust.
However, the scenery was out of this world...actually on "top of the world". It follows a ridge line on the crest of a mountain range and it was spectacular. Poor Tony, he had to watch the road so carefully that he couldn't see as much as I did!
Chicken is as far north as we are going. The northernmost end of the road is Eagle(about 50 miles) above the Arctic Circle and we are definitely NOT going there. We're heading for Tok and then on to Anchorage.
