Be sure to visit Homer when you are in Anchorage. Its relatively close, its the end of the road. I camped out on the spit, it was great (and surprising to me, bug free!!)

Also, if you go to Denali, I couldn't get camping at the National Park (booked months in advance). But about ten miles down the road you come to Denali State Park. Very basic camping, but it was cheap, and it is looking at the same mountain. Empty too!

Hello Everyone,
I live in Juneau, Alaska and I'd like to encourage anyone interested in exploring Alaska to come North in 2018. Would suggest coming North after the Rally. Anyone interested? I'll try to help with your plans ... I haven't traveled to Alaska interior much but do know Southeast Alaska quite well... its the best anyway. Oh Oh! I could be in trouble for that last comment.

Lets start a thread for Alaska 2018.

Tom

I can't make it in 2018, but I'll follow this thread with great anticipation. Alaska is definitely in my future plans.

Enjoy!

Just plan it, and they will come.

Not certain when, but heading to Alaska for a few months is definitely on our must do list. We did do a 2 week trip in the southeast part, including a one week yacht trip and a night out with Tom, but definitely want to go back with our trailer. Taking it on the Marine Highway is also a consideration, camping for a bit at every port, just have to weight out the costs involved.

We've been talking about such a trip for quiet a while. If all the variables in life came into alignment, we'd be interested.

We too will be following this thread with great anticipation. Probably not in the cards for us in 2018, maybe 2019....

I wish I could say absolutely yes, but probably not in 2018 for me, either.

We bought the trailer to do the bucket list of which the main one is a trip to Alaska. But Cathy has to get fully retired first plus her mother is slowly failing in the nursing home. As of now I hope it is 2019 to Alaska. To take a trip with no time frame of when you have to be back has got to be the ultimate. Loren
