June 1 is D day for me and the wife has planned for us to see all this wonderful country of ours that I have over looked. . We ar looking at the possibility of making Alaska summer of 2006 and are doing our planning ahead. :blush: . We will be leaving South Louisiana in a 1979 Foretravel, pulling a Saturn wagon with 2 kids 13 and 6, 1 old dog, a puppy and a cat or two . We will have about a month to make this run. One option would be to make a 5 or 6 day run a few weeks ahead of time and leave the motor home at a storage lot. this would give us a 2,000 mile head start . What we realy need to know :question: is how much cash to take, gas prices, rv park cost , when is the best time, what to see thats not in the brocures.
