Sorry about the cross-post... I'm just looking for advice before this weekend, and it occurred to me that not many people might read the "Alaska by Road" forum. Anyway here's my questions:
I'm taking the Bellingham-Haines ferry in the dead of winter (very end of January), from where I will be driving to Anchorage. Ideally I would like to take a small (5x8) cargo trailer behind the pickup truck. However I have little experience driving on snow and ice.
Can this reasonably be done? Or is this an incredibly stupid idea. I can have my stuff shipped if I have to, I would just prefer to be able to bring a trailer up to Anchorage. But not if I have to drive the 800 miles at 5 mph...
Thanks for any advice.
