My name is jason I have never been to the AK, just looking for advice on an outfitter or someone to point me in the right direction. I would like to go unguided in 09 because of the $$ situation. I have recently talked to an outfitter at a sportsmans show in PA. The outfitter was Willow Air and he said the price would be around $4800 and that just includes the raft. All of the camping equipment,food,air fair is up to us to buy. If anyone has any info or has ever used him your opnion would be greatly appreciated. As for the equipment if any one can recommend what to bring that you normaly would not think of that also would be very helpful.
