Hi Everyone
I come in from Boston on Sat staying at the Ramada Anchorage and taking the Park Conx bus at 7am next day. Anyone else on similar schedule?

I've signed up for the Aug 23rd 2015 trip. I would love to hear back from others going on this trip.
Carol Carr Jul 30, 2015 at 11:46 AM

I'll be there too, arriving 8/22 and taking the train the next morning to Denali. How are you getting there?

Hi Carol, I'm arriving 8/22 and taking the Park Connection bus the next morning, so I will see you there. This is my first trip to Alaska- so excited!

I'm signed up for the Aug 24th trip. I'm thinking of arriving in Anchorage a couple of days early and doing some hiking (or biking or whatever) in some of the parks around Anchorage. Is anyone else interested in doing the same?

Jill Stanton May 21, 2012 at 05:50 PM

If one of our group is driving back, and has space, I would be most willing to share the driving and expenses. And if that person is also interested in a 1 hour flight over the park from a Talkeetna-based plane--on the way back to Anchorage--so much the better!

Judith Rutschman Mar 21, 2012 at 08:52 PM

I am going on the trip June 24th to June 30th. Would anyone on the trip want to meet in Anchorage and travel together to Talkeetna?
