The two RV Gypsies went on a
Jeep backcountry tour
through mud and water
July 6, 2009
The wild jeep journey began with a short ride on the George Parks Highway through the town of Healy. Then a turn onto Stampede Road, once called the Stampede Trail (a road NOT shown on any Alaska map). This road was carved out of the wilderness by early miners working the area's Kantishna gold fields and antimony mine. The road gained notoriety in the motion picture, "Into The Wild" directed by Sean Penn.

The two RV Gypsies shifted into 4-wheel drive mode and onto narrow dirt roads, through muddy puddles, and over rocky "roads" with plenty of bumps and dips and sways.

The two RV Gypsies arrived at the camp area where Scott, the cook, resides all summer. Scott only leaves the camp to do laundry. Food is brought into his camp for him. When the summer is over, Scott lives in Anchorage, but said he would rather be in the woods.
