In further planning for my upcoming trip to Alaska, I think I have thought of a possible hitch in my plans. I had planned to bring along a tent and gear and do as much camping as I could, so as to stay longer. It is hard to find anything under $100/night in Ak. Most are $125 and up.
Anyway, will it be possible to pitch camp near the plane at the out of the way airports I plan on visiting? I don't want to have any food near the plane in case a Brownie might try to get inside you know! But long hikes with a heavy load is not what I need or could possibly even do, as my feet are arthritic. A couple of day hikes or a night out under the stars in the down bag are more to my liking. If the airports do not allow camping on the airport grounds, how about just outside the grounds. A few hundred yards with the mountain bike should not be too hard to manage. Anyone know if this will be a problem?
