A friend and I impulsively decided to drive from San Francisco to Anchorage this week to surprise a friend. We're going to try to drive non-stop on the way there, and spend a few days (probably a week or less in Anchorage) and take our time coming back.

What is the best route to get to Anchorage from here? Keep in mind that we are probably going to skip sight-seeing on the way there...
What about going back? I was thinking about taking a ferry to Washington, then drive back down to SF. That way we could save money on gas and sight-see at the same time. Is this a good plan in comparison to the self-tours?

We already bought the Milestone, but any other helpful preparation tips?

I just got home from my road trip to Montana and back. There is a lot of construction going on now on Highway 97 as of this past week or two. This is the main route from the states and it enters in Washington. I'll post pics soon.
