ROBERT E. FREEMAN
I organized my own trip in 2006, flying first to Fairbanks and renting a car for three days; then took the Alaska Railroad to Anchorage; then flew to Nome for three days; then flew to Cordova for three days. From there, took the ferry to Whittier and the train to Anchorage. Rented a car and drove to Homer and points in between. Highlight was the Walk through the Tunnel at Whittier and meeting the tunnel manager on June 11. This was my fifth trip to Alaska. Other trips were in 2005 (ferry trips between Ketchikan, Petersburg, Wrangell, Juneau, Haines, and Skagway); in 2002 drove the Alaska Highway with side trips to Eagle, Valdez, , McCarthy, Skagway and Deadhorse and return on the Cassier Highway; business trip in 1997; and in 1977 a hike on the Chilkoot Trail along with visits to Juneau, Skagway, Sitka, Anchorage, Fairbanks, and flights to Barrow and Deadhorse.
