Alaska unsolicited advice.......

A lot of comments in a variety of threads referencing upcoming trips to Alaska. Iíve worked there over the years and visited recently via our sailboat in SE Alaska the toured central Alaska.

Here are some things Iíd keep in mind.

Alaska is big, the highway system is small. Most RVs end up in a few spots. Seward, AK we were walking the waters edge, motor homes were wedged in there tight. People were having fun, but it was tight.

Think about Homer, AK and go fishing.

Ride the Alaska Railroad to Denali. Thereís a hostel south of the park reasonably priced. Get out of your RV. Get in an airplane if you want to see Alaska. You wonít see that much from your RV. Itís different than the lower 48.

Consider going to Katmai Park and seeing the bears. Time your visit to after the salmon show up. More bears than you can count. Lodge is pricey, but we camped for 3 nights. Iím old but Iím cheap. If you want to splurge get a room, do it soon.
Itís a fly in or out from King Salmon or Kenai, Ak. No road to Katmai.

If you want to see Alaska get in a plane or a boat!

Southeast Alaska we did off our boat. The Alaska State Ferry system youíre could get certain RVs on and off hopping around SE Alaska. Itís wet take your rain gear. Itís beautiful and nothing like the rest of Alaska.

So, get out of your RV. Get into a plane or boat Often to see more of Alaska. Take a float trip go fish, you may only be here once because it will be a haul to get there.

Have fun!
