We started the day out with an 11:10am flight to Atlanta. After a 1.5 hr flight, we laid over in Atlanta for two hours. Our flight from Atlanta to Anchorage was a little longer. We got in at 6:33pm, but the 4 hr time change masked 8 hrs in the air.
In Anchorage, we were planning to pick up a rental SUV at Enterprise (GMC Yukon, Chevy Tahoe, Ford Expedition, or similar). They claim this class of vehicle can accommodate up to 7 passengers. We were just hoping it would accommodate 5 of us and two weeks worth of luggage. We were thinking of packing one of those fabric car-top carriers in case we had to put some luggage on the roof.
I say "were planning" because we decided to rent an RV. Even though we were going to get the rental car half off (P&G Personal discount), the RV was cheaper than the SUV plus the lodging. Woo hoo! Thanks June for finding one at a great price! We taxied the ~4 mi from the airport to Clippership Motorhomes. (Great Alaskan Holidays was already booked up and ABC Motorhome Rental could only manage a split reservation - come back halfway through and exchange.) Since we didn't get in until after business hours, we spent the night in a small cabin on the Clippership property and completed our registration in the morning.
