    Fairbanks is 119 miles from Denali, $618 in airfare, and $275 in bus tix.
    Anchorage is 249 miles from Denali, $613 in airfare (it came down since looking last), and $650 for the bus tix.

    Not entirely true. The National has a few near the entrance and at least one (???) at the end. But yeah, it's almost entirely trail-less. I'm ok with that. Reading a map and using a compass is easy...
  3. Thx. I will go thru the list of hikes there.

    Thx. I will go thru the list of hikes there.

    Old Toad,
    I need to do some more digging on your suggestions. But I'm thinking of sticking with just Denali at this point. If I find a 6 day loop trail, it will be clinched.

    All,
    Anyone know of...

    Denali STATE Park, ... interesting. Didn't know there was one. Not terribly surprised but they really need to work on naming if for no other reason than the search and rescue guys.

    Looking at the...

    Lol, I guess I should have defined "see" better. A drive by doesn't really count in my book. I did that at Yellowstone; drove thru the park, did the 1/4 mile tourist trail, saw Old Faithful, then...

    Hey, I used to live in Irmo, SC. Howdy, ex-neighbor.



    I hate you already!! ;)


    Thx for the advice, I'll check all these out.

    No Denali? Seems a shame to travel 4,000 miles and not see...

    Now we need to define "bus" apparently. Lol. There are shuttle buses, camper buses, and tour buses. The shuttles and camper are run by the park and seem to start May 20th. The tour buses are third...

    What do we think about this??? Airfare is $750 from BWI-FAI / ENA-BWI. I don't know what the cost for the train is going to be. Then there is getting to the airport in Kenai somehow. The last leg is...

    The Empire Builder in the Lower 48 is also on the bucket list. There's a "tourist train" in AK that is also Amtrak I believe. I don't know if it's this line or not. Maybe it wasn't Amtrak. Something...

    Had it figured out before seeing the definition. Not sure I've ever heard it before but I like it!!

    Thx all.
    Where is that from?

    It was a National Parks page I was looking at. Fairly certain it was Denali even. Their page said peak season for backpacking passes was May-Oct. Another page or...

    Yes to both!!

    I started out looking at the cruises; they hit Skagway. But I want off the boat so I can do my own thing.

    Juneau might be cheaper. I'll have to check that out. Thx for the...
  14. 9 days, Alaska, and May; where would you go?

    So, the gf's bday is May 15th. Alaska has been on both of our bucket lists forever. Flying out on the Fri night/Sat morning prior and returning the following Sunday. 5 days max off from work. Using...

    That was the standard M.O. I couldn't get the wife or kids interested in backpacking. They were barely ok with throwing stuff out of a trunk and setting up. Actually only my son was ok with that....

    Sounds like a great story for the (grand)kids. Where's the lightening strikes and rabid bear?*

    No fricking way!! I can't stand mummy bags as it is. For survival sure. For anything short of that, not a chance!!

    Which one did you order?

    Some of these sites are ridiculous. 3 man tent that is 11 lbs and in the backpacking category. Sure, if it was still 1957.

    Concerned; yes. Panic stricken; no. The less sopping the better. Who wants the extra work of drying out their tent if they don't have to?

    I've done cabin tents in the rain but it has a "roof" and...

    So most tents I've seen have the poles between the tent and the fly. How do you attach the fly directly to the tent?

    I'm 6'2" as well and do NOT have to sleep diagonal at all even in the 2 man tent. I bought the 2 man tent for when I was solo hiking. I had my son with me once but turns out he's a glamper not a...

    I've been thinking of getting a 3 man tent for this very reason. The gf won't leave her dogs at home or outside alone. 2 people, 2 backpacks and 2 dogs will fit in a 2 man tent as long as you don't...

    After weeks of peanut butter and ramen, would hermetically sealed be a good idea for the occupant?

    Hiker found dead; cause of death, his own farts.

    I'm more of a traditionalist myself. I wouldn't even skip a section just to come back to it later unless I was running out of time for Baxter.
