    Buddy of mine is moving back to AK from OKC. He will be driving across Canada. Projected route takes him across the border in Montana, up through Edmonton then AB-43 to BC-49 to BC-97 to YT-1 on into Alaska.

    How are gas stations along this route? Anyone traveled these routes before? Anything major he should watch out for or avoid?

    Watch for a lot of wildlife at dawn and dusk, especially north of Edmonton. A lot of moose up there, and black bears are quite common as well.

    For long trips into unknown areas, I always carry a jerrycan or two of gas. Just in case.
