Answered by Admin: You could, but this is not a practical idea. Driving to Eielson from the "Lower 48" would take most of a week and require going through one of the most remote areas of Canada, which is a friendly nation but a paperwork hassle. Driving through Alaska is a serious challenge, too. It's probably better to fly to Fairbanks and ship your car.
Is this base out in the woods somewhere? Are there bears and wolves? (1 Answer)
Answered by Admin: Yes, the base is actually out in the woods, and there are wild areas nearby no matter where you go in Alaska, except maybe downtown Anchorage. Bears, wolves, moose, and all sorts of other wild animals are fairly common near Eielson, although they aren't too likely to wander onto base.
Wolves are not really a serious threat as long as you stay away from them. Bears can be - make sure to pay attention to bear safety.
