How many hours does it take to drive a pickup from Fairbanks to Deadhorse if you are driving straight through? Current road conditions? Heading up on Sunday for a Monday fly out to hunt Caribou. Any info would be great. I am bring 15-30 gallons extra fuel, two spare tires (tires and rims), another tire, tools, duct tape, clear plastic and etc. Just looking for how long it would take to drive straight through and are the fuel stops open 24/7? Would you recommend renting a SAT phone for the week (Mostly for the drive)? I am going to throw in a portable CB what channel do the truckers monitor?
