drive into the wilderness... Our first two days are slightly relaxed concerning
the competitive aspect (to get used to the new surroundings). Leaving
immediately get our first impressions of the Alaskan landscapes and nature.
We are on one of the main roads in Alaska (State Highway number one) but
do not get to see many villages or towns at all. Surprisingly, there are
a dozen groups of enthusiasts out on the highway to make photos. On our
first day we see forests, marsh, lakes, rivers, creeks, snow-covered mountains
and glaciers, pretty much what will expect us the following days but it
is certainly breath taking.

of motels, restaurants, shops, petrol-stations, laundromats and
RV places ("recreational vehicles", places where you can
put your 10-metre or longer driving living container) located at
the junction of highway 1 and 2.
