The oldest and most frequently used trip planner for Alaska and northwestern Canada, The Milepost deservedly proclaims itself "the bible of North Country travel." Published since 1949 and updated yearly by editors in the field who drive every road listed, this guidebook is filled with maps that provide mile-by-mile logs of the Alaska Highway and all other major northern routes. Detailed information is provided on all cities, major towns and attractions. The guide also provides a range of accommodations (hotels, B&Bs, campsites), typical weather conditions, a calendar of events and metric/U.S. conversions. For those with specific interests, there is information on fishing, wildlife watching, local gold rush history, glaciers, the trans-Alaskan pipeline and Native crafts.For those not travelling by car, this 54th edition for 2002 also looks at the Alaskan railroad, air travel, buses, cruise ships and ferries. Schedules for both Alaskan and B.C. ferries have been updated. As a bonus, there is a pull-out, Plan-a-Trip map for armchair travellers who want to get a head start on the ultimate adventure in the North.
