All roads lead to Tok, Alaska

Tok, Alaska
It is said that “All roads lead to Tok,” and nothing could be truer for adventuring in Alaska. Tok is also known as the dog capital of Alaska for its breeders and mushers. From Tok, visitors can head toward Anchorage, Fairbanks, or to Valdez.

The town, because of its strategic location, is a great place to catch up on road conditions, fishing reports, spend a night and fuel up. We stayed at Tok RV Village. The hospitality was warm and we enjoyed getting to know fellow travelers and comparing notes. When the summer season is on, Tok RV Village operates a car wash. For those who have picked up the thick glacial silty road dust of the Alaska Highway, few things could be more welcome.

Getting ready for the Alaska Highway—nylon compartmentalized travel bag
We stored our other very lightweight items in a fabric travel bag with clear plastic zipper pocket compartments of varying sizes. Cotton swabs and balls, dental floss, eyeglass cleaning cloths and a tiny emergency sewing kit find their home here.
