^Exactly. All the strip clubs in Fairbanks burned down in August this year. You will need to have the 2018 edition in order to stay apprised of these important matters, so don't get chintzy.

The milepost is starting to get overrated and overpriced IMO. Any old issue will do as well as a map. Just follow the one road and stop at every town to top off on gas.

There are no groundbreaking updates and changes for at least the last 5 years.

For the first time traveler it doesn't hurt to have the most recent edition of the Milepost. It's not really that expensive, especially through Amazon. I just drove the highway last week for the umpteenth time and I only looked at mine a couple of times. But I already knew exactly where I would gas up and where I would spend the night. It's become nothing more than a long drive for me. 48 hours on the highway and another 24 hours between Dawson Creek and the Montana border crossing. 72 hours total time to transit through Canada. In January I would add in another 12 to 24 hours due to snow and ice on the road. But it's plowed and sanded as needed.

Your post has convinced me to wait for the 2018.
