Synopsis: The MILEPOST® is the "quintessential" travel guide to Alaska and the highways and byways of the North. Since 1949, this "bible of North Country Travel" has offered details on road conditions, ferry travel, lodging, camping, fishing, sightseeing and services in Alaska, Yukon, British Columbia, Alberta and Northwest Territories. Travelers will find trip planning help and answers to frequently asked questions on such topics as wildlife viewing, crossing the border and traveling with pets.

This may be the biggest book you’ve ever read. It is also, by far, the most comprehensive and invaluable tome when navigating the Alaska Highway. When traveling throughout Alaska and northwestern Canada, The Milepost, a much-needed Bible since 1949, is the book to have under your arm-or car seat.
In its 64th edition, The Milepost is the “essential guide” for Alaska travelers, since 1949. This edition is edited by Kris Valencia, and with nearly 700 color photos and 100 maps to edit, her job is a big one. According to Valencia, “traveling the Alaska Highway is worth the price, and the memories are worth the mileage.”
This reviewer can attest to that. Taking off on my big adventure in 1972, a friend and I traveled from Chicago, IL to Fairbanks, AK and back. With dozens of stops along the way-and only one flat tire-we drove 28,500 miles in 28 days. At that time, the famous Highway was not all paved; much of it gravel. Now, the Highway is paved, all miles of it, which probably means the trip is a little faster.
Covering some 14,000 miles of road, The Milepost lists detailed descriptions of all the communities along the way, a mile-by-mile log of all Northern routes and attractions inboth Alaska and northwestern Canada. When traveling the Alaska Highway, we found the mile-by-mile logs extremely helpful; particularly, when in need of a fuel stop and/or eating establishment. We had our camping sites scheduled ahead of time, which helped, but referred to Milepost time after time when searching for suggestions about where to stop and/or eat. I have kept my original Milepost, which in the 1970s was a considerably smaller version.
As I did when traveling in Alaska, The Milepost recommends all travelers carefully plan their itineraries ahead of time. For instance, if you are traveling in a good size RV, you will find there are extended parking areas available most everywhere along the way. Travelers can also combine road travel with the Alaska state ferry system and the Alaska Railroad. We triedbooking the Ferry before we left town and even at that time, there was no more room available. In 2012, I suspect this is more of a problem, due to far more travelers to Alaska.
Readers and travelers needn’t purchase The Milepost only if they are planning a trip to Alaska. On the contrary, for the armchair traveler alike, The Milepost is just great fun to read and peruse. There is so much contained in this travel planner, it is great reading. You will learn a lot.
"...Nothing is too small to escape the attention of The Milepost. If you are wondering if the next turnout has trashcans or if there is a fish-filleting table next to the boat launch up ahead, just consult this travel guide. Besides mile-by-mile descriptions, has lots of useful information on preparing for a trip to Alaska, whether you are planning to travel there by RV, fly there and rent an RV, sail there on a cruise ship or take a ferry...."

"A "must-have" is the most recent edition of The MILEPOST which contains updated information on maps, road conditions, ferry schedules, campgrounds, businesses, and colorful side trips on every road in Alaska, Yukon and BC."
"If you are planning a trip to Alaska, or even dreaming about taking one, The MILEPOST is an absolute must. There is a wealth of information in this take-along book."- Woodall's CamperWays
