Has anyone tried this trip with kids? We are a family of 4, both teachers and a 9 and 10-year-old. We regularly road trip for 30-40 days in summers and I am curious if this is family friendly? and if that would impact the cost? Also, how is the internet availability along the way? the DW teachers online in summer so she would need good cell or wifi at least once or twice a week.

Call Jim Weir our wagonmaster at 360-244-1704. He is there to answer any questions you have. He has told me many times that if anyone had questions to feel free to call him. We did have a girl about 12 years old on our last trip and she was involved with everything. The only event that she couldn't participate in was the show in Dawson City at Diamond Tooth Gerties as it is in a casino and bar.Dave

For an additional clarification. If you have someone who would like to take this trip in their own rig,not an Open Range be it family or friend, or if you have changed brand of rigs you can still sign up for this trip. You can contact Jim Weir, who will be our wagonmaster, and he can sign them up for this trip. Jim's phone number is 360-244-1704 and will be happy to talk to you and answer any questions you may have.Dave

Having been to Alaska and Canada in 2016 on a sea and land trip we will be visiting many places we only had a few hours to explore then.
Many stops are 1 or 2 day layovers so there is plenty time to explore.
Elaine and I are both retired teachers and I can say this trip would be great for the kids.
