IH Scout Driver is on a distinguished road

When you get the winterization done (after getting here); they'll put in the correct ratio's. But Army of one nailed them if you're mixing yourself. One nice thing about having the shop do it is that they'll typically flush the system at the same time (very helpful after that drive).

Both times I drove it was in late fall / mid winter; and I had a trailer, so it took a little longer. But I made the trip from Houghton / Hancock to Fairbanks in 7 days (solo); 5 days with 2 drivers.

Be sure to have about ~10 gallons spare fuel with you and a current copy of the milepost. Since you'll be coming up during tourist season, 99% of the shops / gas stations will be open. You'll get slowed down by the RV's in several locations; and watch for the oilfield guys in NWT, some drive like they own the road.
