We made an automotive trip in the eastern part of Alaska, covering Arctic and Pacific ocean coasts, Denali and McCarthy national parks, 6200 km of roads (of them, 1/3 gravel, 2/3 asphalt). Transportation included 24 days in a trucktop camper, two long-distance ferries, two small planes, two bus shuttles, a boat cruise, and about 40km on foot.
