We have a PC2100 are seriously researching Alaska for 2014. Want to do the ferry at least one way. Would appreciate any information you can provide.
For the Alaska ferry trip, which btw. we also did only one way, you can google Alaska inside passage ferry
. Book well in advance! It sells out quickly. We stopped over on several islands over night and camped out to visit the sites. Than took the next pre arranged boat. Since there are no roads in southern Alaska there is only the Ferry which we entered from British Columbia. For the way back we drove the famous Alaska Highway build in WWII in 2 summers! It's now all asphalted and in good repair.
Also to see the midnight sun from Fairbanks instead of driving the gravel road to the polar circle we just went up the mountain outside Fairbanks and presto: perfect midnight sun.
