trip from AK to North Dakota
Ok guys and gals. I am planning a trip from Alaska to the East coast of the US. However I would like to take Highway 16 from BC through Canada then drop down into North Dakota. My questions other than has anyone else taken this route before are:
- Are there sufficient fuel stops along the route?
- How is the road condition in general?
- places to camp without being hassled?
I am also posting this in the trip planning and Canada sections of ADV.

I drove up from Vermont last August. Took the northern route through montreal, michigan, and subsequently punched up through into canada in North Dakota. I'm assuming you're going to go Alcan down to saskatoon, then down to ND?
There was plenty of fuel, and the road was totally fine, but it is extremely boring. Less boring is punching down through Lethbridge Alberta and into Montana. Much less boring is punching down through Invermere BC/Montpelier Idaho area after going through Banff and Jasper (did that on the GS, was awesome).
