Just a note, Tolik. Maine may have a spiderweb of logging roads, but most of Alaska is either mountain, or muskeg (swampy with zillions of mosquitos–even drive the wildlife insane). There are only 5 roads in all of Alaska (well, maybe 7). Most people travel the rivers, via boat in summer, sno-go or pickup truck in winter on the ice. Or of course, bush plane. Don’t forget the darkness of winter there, or -60F winters…been there, done that… Many people dream of bugging out to Alaska, but unless you’ve been there a while to get the feel of it, it’s what I call “magnificent but merciless.”
For the young and strong, a great place. For the old and rich (lots of equipt) also great. Poor and old (me), not so much.
