At The Dyrt, we share camping tips from our community of campers and campgrounds. With so many campers staying home, we continue to share this info so you can plan future camping trips across the U.S.

It’s day 35 of our 40-day #GetOutAndGO project, today featuring the Alaska Railroad. To celebrate, Belmont Blanket is giving away a free $150 #AdventureBlanket. Enter to win here.

The Last Frontier’s untouched wilderness

When you visit Alaska, you’ll find wide open spaces like you’ve never seen in your life. No matter how deep you go, you’ll wish you could go even deeper, seeing more and more remote parts of Alaska.

Alaska’s hub, Anchorage, is a bustling city, but when you start going north on the Alaska Railroad you begin to see a whole new side of Alaska.





On your way to Talkeetna, Denali National Park, or Fairbanks you’ll see some amazing sights that you’ll never get the chance to see from a highway–all while sipping on your favorite drink.

The railway is an incredidble way to take it all in.

Double-takes are common, whether it’s for a rare wildlife sighting or a massive glacier. And one thought will stick with you throughout the experience: “How on earth did they get this railroad built?”

To celebrate the Alaska Railroad, Belmont Blanket is giving away a $150 Adventure Blanket. Enter to win here.

Get Out And Explore Beyond the Alaska Railroad!

Seeing the beautiful views from the train’s big windows will only incite your curiosity to see more of Alaska. When you book your travel on the Alaska Railroad you also have the option to book an excursion, such as experiencing Alaska by “jetboat”  or from the sky.

Ryan, like most people, is an onion (figuratively speaking), and finds byline bios reductive, though useful. He is writing this himself in the third person, and—to him—it feels strange.
