We spent the rest of the day visiting Visitor Centers and gathering literature. We are trying to figure out if there is a way make the 1000-mile round trip to the Arctic Ocean without totally destroying our rig or car (the road is mostly unpaved, washboardy and potholed). We have been talking to people about planes, van trips, and rental cars. Everyone advises against taking the rig, and most advise against taking our car unless we have 2 rimmed spare tires, food and water (I don't think breakfast bars, our current "car food," count), survival gear, and a satellite radio or CB.
One final photo from Fairbanks today. I think the sign installers were in a manic phase:
