No, your not nuts. Thousands of people do it every year. I saw some from as far away as Florida driving up the Alcan. They were driving what looked like a 60' motorhome with a boat behind it. Just make sure you have plenty of money for gas...

And a passport! And registration for your vehicle, and proof of insurance, and pet papers (if your bringing a dog etc).
If your driving home again (not staying in Ak) figure on at least 2 grand Canadian just for travel expenses through Canada both ways.

Read this, I've done the Alcan 13 times now. Most of the trips started in Alaska. I go the other way, start up here and drive down to the states, reverse tourist.

What type of vehicle are you driving? I am looking for someone to tow a travel trailer and would be willing to pay all fuel costs one way from Kansas to Ancorage. It would take at least a 1/2 ton truck to pull the camper.
