I first drove the Alaskan Highway in 1986. Back then it wasn’t as well developed as it is today. If you think about about it, the road was barely 40 years old back then with many gravel sections. Today it is pretty well maintained which takes some of the “adventure” out of it. That’s not to say don’t do it. Always go do it, never sit still. There are other roads up there with plenty of adventure on them. With that said they are going fast. Oil fracking, hunting and fishing lodges, timber exploration are all taking their toll on adventure. Do it now, before they pave paradise.
