I am planning to travel from WhiteHorse to Fairbanks in a 20 foot jetboat (350 BFI, Hamilton 212). I have lots of time and thought that when I get to Tanana I might go out to the coast and back just to say I did it. I figure to have enough fuel for the downstream run with stops at Galena and St Mary's. Coming back up I'm not so sure. Can I get gas at any other places like Holy Cross or Russian Mission? I'm also not sure of the current speed I'll be fighting back upstream. I'll skip that portion if the fuel situation looks iffy.
I have been looking at the maps and satellite photos and it looks like the Tanana may be a tricky run mid to late August. Is there much local traffic from Tanana to Fairbanks? I thought I might campout until I saw somebody heading up and follow their lead.
Any advice or comments are appreciated.
