What started out as a solo trip to see my sister has now turned into an RV trip with the whole fam (with 1 3-yr-old and 2 late 50s/early 60s ladies), and we're supposedly going where the wind takes us, but we already know we want to hit Denali, Wrangell-St. Elias, and Kenai Fjords NPs. While we're in the neighborhood, we'd like to stop in Valdez and have opted to drive back to Anchorage as opposed to taking the ferry. Denali and Kenai Fjords are taken care of and reserved, but other than that, nothing else. How do we enjoy W St.-E on a budget and still go into McCarthy (without driving our RV, since we heard we'll most definitely pop a tire), and what else could/should we see/do between Denali and Wrangell and Wrangell and Valdez that's relatively inexpensive ($100-150/person AT MOST)? Will most likely fish off the docks in Valdez - no chartering this time around. Dinner cruises? Hot springs? Glacier hiking? Horseback riding? Anything else??? Anything oddball?? We like quirky!
