Who is TentAlaska.com? We’re a couple of travelers with a passion for road trips, tent camping and exploring our world. He’s an experienced traveler with hundreds of thousands of miles behind him. She’s an up and coming geographer with a passion for life and this world. Together, we pursue what’s around us, make the most of it and love every minute of it.
We sought to find a compromise between an RV or lodging based road trip and sleeping in our car on a road trip to Alaska. In our extensive research, we found materials designed for the common tent camper were in very short supply. Most guides out there focus on the RV journey or staying in lodging along the way. For us, this was not an economical approach to the road trip and we had to carve our own path.
We successfully developed a travel approach that meets both comfort and personal sustainability. More importantly, this approach is very cost-effective and may make the journey more accessible to others. Here we document our experiences, our planning guides and other resources that will help you define your own journey to Alaska. We seek to aid our readers in their planning efforts, knowledge and preparation so you can have a safe, successful and comfortable road trip to Alaska.
