Rented in Alaska
Went on a 5 week RV vacation in Alaska this summer. Rented a 33ft class C from Clippership RV in Anchorage. They have a couple categories of rvís. I went with the Gold option. New or no more than a year old. Mine had 20k mikes on it. All features were in good shape. The pick up was easy, never even saw an employee as we picked up after hours. Make sure to video the RV before you leave the lot in case you need it later for any dispute about damage or inoperable features. Came with camp chairs and ďbasicĒ cooking utensils. Key being basis. Went to Walmart and Fred Myers to outfit the rv with real life supplies. We spent a week on the Kenai Peninsula, fishing and camping on the Russian River. Took a charter out of Homer with Bobís Trophy Charters. Highly recommend Bobís Trophy Charter. In Seward we did a Kenai Fjord tour. Whales otters eagles. Even got a floating piece of glacier ice to take back to the rv. Had adult beverages with that chunk of ice for over a week. From Seward we were scheduled to go to Denali, however Covid screwed up that plan. So we had to go the other direction. Glennallen then to Valdez. I lived Valdez. Beautiful and friendly. The thing about going this summer with the Covid pandemic going on was that there were very few people vacationing. It was like we had most rv campgrounds to ourselves. We drove every paved road in the state. Went to Tok then to Chicken. Then to Delta Junction to Fairbanks. Fairbanks to Chena Hot Springs. Back to Fairbanks then up the Dalton all the way to Coldfoot and Wiseman. The Dalton was in great shape. We could drive 45 mph most of the time. Spent 4 days at Marion Creek campground. Took a flight into Gates of the Arctic and Kobuk Valkey National Park. Coyote Air out of Coldfoot. Unforgettable scenery. Bucket list for sure. Saw lots of grizzly bears and moose and wolves while traveling along the Dalton Highway. From there we went to Denali NP and had reservations at Tecklanika campground. The buses were finally running. However they were not going all the way to Kantishna, they only went to Eilson visitors center. We did lots of hiking. Got close to grizzly sleeping on a snow patch. Saw lots of Caribou and Moose and many more bears. After Denali we decided to drive up the Old Denali Highway. Worst RIAD we traveled on . About 45 miles of it was bone jarring washboard. The one good thing about that leg was we camped at Brushkana campground and Met Jessie Holmes from the TV show Life Below Zero. All I all in was a great rv trip and I did not have to drive my MH from North Carolina and back. Canít wait to go back.
