TOP GEAR USA- Alaska
Hey Fellow cruisers,
I am a producer on History Channel's new TOP GEAR USA. If you are familiar with the British version then you will know our show. I want to apologize in advance for this episode I am producing will not include cruisers... dont hate me.
I am writing you because we are doing an alaskan episode featuring the toughest american trucks. I am trying to find out if anyone that did the Alaska Cruiser expedition can send me some information about what trails and river crossings you did leading up to the glaciers. Did you drive on Glacier 13 or was it Gakona Glacier. I just started on the show today and figured I would use the mud forum to get some much needed intel into the area.
Here is the basic plan. We are looking for some river crossings, glaciers to drive up to or even on, and a lot of difficult terrain in between. We plan to shoot this second week of august, starting in Anchorage and working our way to the Dalton Highway. Are any of the trails you crossed linked to the Iditarod? Basically I am trying to get up to speed and figure out exactly where to go.
I am also looking for some metal fabricators, welders, suppliers for a challenge near fairbanks. Any information you guys can provide would be great.
I am tempted to just drive my BJ40 up there and have my own adventure on the company dime... but know that this is not possible.
Thanks for any information you may have.
