Denali Road Lottery - we won - now comes the problem!!

The title says part of it, here comes the rest.

Against all odds, we actually won the Denali Road Lottery for entry on Sept. 12. Our plans were made months ago for this trip, and since we absolutely never expected to win, we booked a 25' RV from Anchorage. The problem is that, with a 25', we can't drive very far into Denali, since 22' vehicles are the maximum allowed. (Even if we could switch to a 22' RV, other problems would be caused with the bedding configurations in a 22'er for the rest of the rental.)

Is there any great TA member - located somewhere between Anchorage and Healy or so, who has a car, is free on the 12th of September, and would like to spend the day at DNP?? We'd be glad to pay your expenses. My husband and I(it's just the two of us) would be eternally grateful for any and all help. We do have a camping spot reserved at Riley Creek and could meet you anywhere near there. And if you can't spare the time, maybe you know someone who could.

Thanks for your help.

Look for a private message on this topic. I will be in the neighborhood with a friend at that time, and the opportunity to drive into the park with you sounds like it could be a pleasant experience.
