advice on Run up to Fairbanks...

Hello people from the NW!

I am planning my annual Summer "mancation" and I was looking to head from the MOA rally up to Alaska and back down to Yakima WA. (starting and ending in Orlando FL)

Here is a link to what I think is going to be the middle of my trip.

I was hoping to get some advice from the collective as to your thoughts on this route?

Last year I made it to Seattle and back to Orlando and this year I am taking a different route and want to add Alaska.

as an FYI I will NOT be camping along the way so please keep that in mind.

Thanks in advance.

Paul

Well, a stop at Liard River Hotsprings is nice http://www.britishcolumbia.com/hotsprings/?id=18 .https://www.google.com/maps/place/Li...cebe21998d434c . Bring your swim suit, & soak it some hot water. There was a motel just south of the park, but it might be closed..???

Will you need motel reservations or can you just stop & get a room when needed ?.
