I would suggest you use it on long weekends and weeks to see that it is outfitted for your needs. You have a nice looking rig that seems to be well outfitted.

Thank you Native. That’s a really good idea.

However thinking more in terms of what to prepare for on the Alaska Canada highway - fueling - food - camping - etc. it’s 4300 miles one way.
