    I "resemble" that remark. Good luck with the clamming.

    I can see that there are no roads are visible via Google maps, I didn't know if there was another weay besides boat/plane.

    BTW. I was born and raised in AK, although being away so long, I've lost a gret deal of connection with AK. As a kid, my folks were busy working and never took me clam digging, it's something I've recently discovered for myself a few years ago, and enjoy it quite a lot.
    Not to worry. Some of these folks are a little rough around the edges at first, but most of them are some of the nicest folks you'll find anywhere.

    You'll have a great time!

    A tollroad to clams, perfect. Those bridge people still have a thing or three to learn.

    On another note my dad used to work in Trading Bay at one of the oilfield camps.
    They used to drive over to the river at night to fish silvers in their off time. Well one night they get to the river and a plane load of tourists had just arrived to do some evening silver fishing of their own.
    They turned around saw the truck and asked the oilfield guys where they had come from. Without skipping a beat my dad says we drove across from Anchorage at low tide in our 4wd just like all the locals do.
    I guess the look on their faces (after paying their guide several hundred $$$ each for the trip) was priceless while the guide tried to explain what was going on and how this truck got there.
    I still laugh each time I think of that story.
    Ha ha! Now that is a good'n. Maybe if a person had one of those military amphibious vehicles- a "duck"- they actually could drive from Anchorage.

    Followup question. anybody been to the west Cook Inlet beaches for digging? I only read/hear about boat access, does road access exist?
    You can take the taxi its called bottom line charters http://bottomlinecharters.us/
