I've driven the Dalton, there are alot of hazzards on that streach of road.
1. The road is not paved.
2. It is a super highway for semi trucks that have little or no regard for anyone else on that road. their average speed is 65/75 MPH and they will run right up on you and force you of the road.
3. There is Atigun pass at over 4600 feet
4. Last fuel is in cold foot 500+ miles to Pruhdoe bay
You are going to have a great time. Hit Me up on Your way way through Wasilla If you need a place to rest before heading to Fairbanks your welcome at our home brother.

500 miles between coldfoot and pruhdoe bay, there is fuel in pruhdoe. the last time I was there was in 07 and gas in coldfoot was $6.50 a gallon. but I was hauling my own fuel with me because I was caribou hunting.

Google maps and a sites I've read say it's about 250 miles; is there something I'm missing?

At $6.50/gallon though... might consider picking up a larger gas can before I get up there
