How many of us has driven the whole Alaska Highway through Canada and into Alaska? I have solo from Homosassa, Floirda to Healy and Coldfoot, Alaska and back to Florida. The year 2009, It took 12 day's each way. I had very much fun when in Canada on the highway.

Does it get its name from being paved with aluminum cans?

Me. St. Petersburg, FL to Live Oak, Fl (moved). After dumping my "stuff" off in Live Oak we proceeded west to Mexico and California. We zig zagged across the western USA hitting the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Glacier, amongst many others. Then up through Banff, The Ice Fields, Jasper and points north and west. We took the Alcan, diverted up to Dawson City, took the Top of the World Highway back to the Alcan. We went as far north as Fairbanks, did Homer, spent 2.5 months parked on the beach at Seward and Valdez. Then we took the Cassier back down to the lower 48 and stopped briefly in Portland Or. Back across the US hitting Mt Rushmore and a few others. On returning to Florida we headed down to Pine Island to chill for a couple of weeks, then back home. Seven months, 27,000 miles, $30,000+. I'm busted flat broke now but it was worth every mile and every penny. I want to climb back in the RV and do it all again, just a little cheaper.
