Just returned from driving to Wa to tow back a jet boat I purchased and thought to offer a highway report to anyone who may be interested.
Generally speaking the highway is in great shape with the only really bad section being the first 80-100 miles after you enter the Canadian side from Alaska. Frost heeves galore but just slow down and you will be fine.
After converting to our standard gallon and the USA dollar gas prices ranged from about $5.40 to $6.20 a gallon. Highest seen was diesel at $6.50.
Most places in Canada now will NOT take USA money. Those that did charged 25% exchange rate. Best to pick up some canadian dollars before departing or use your plastic. But VISA charges a foreign transaction fee every time you use your card.
I am cheap and hate wasting money so I carried 75 gallons of diesel on the way down and 110 on the way back. Used a 12 volt fuel pump to empty the drums into the truck tank. Heard a lot of rumors that I would be taxed for the fuel by the Canadians but they could of cared less. All border crossings were uneventful. Just be polite and leave the weapons at home.
