Interested in a trip to Alaska?


Here is what may be an opportunity for you. I am looking for someone who wants to visit Alaska but only wants to drive one direction. I am based in Ventura, CA which is just south of Santa Barbara. In late July I would like to drive to Alaska via BC, Yukon and a little bit of NWT, ending the trip in Anchorage.

I have done this trip a few times already, it is spectacular but round trip is just too far. My idea is that I use your truck/camper or Sportsmoblie, and I pay you rent for its use, of course. About the end of the first week of August, I fly back from Anchorage, you fly up and take the vacation of your life, and then drive back through Canada back home. Really, the best part of the trip!

I have extensive experience in Alaska, I can make recommendations to you on places you may like to visit. I have travelled every corner of Baja, USA Desert Southwest area and the Tunisian and Algerian Sahara Desert. I am an exe professional mechanic and I am intimately familiar with both Sportsmobile and Fourwheel campers. I am a very financially secure homeowner with a perfect driving record. And, again, I am happy to pay a fee to you for the use of your vehicle and even a substantial deposit against any damage.

You can learn more of whom I am by visiting:

If this seems interesting to you email me at or call 805 340 2270

Thanks! Gene Rubin

Seems to me a three-way is in order between you guys and the SMB for rent in the "classifieds" section ... just thinking out loud ...
