Welcome to the James Dalton Highway ...Gateway to the Arctic .... the Road to Prudhoe Bay
Have you driven the 414 miles along the Dalton Highway in Alaska up to Deadhorse? Or seen it on "Ice Road Truckers"? Learn about this difficult, remote road trip ... The Dalton Highway.

Many of us live in large, populous urban areas, characterized by traffic and large crowds. And "social distancing" is difficult, and not much fun.

We all need a break from that environment, and often we travel to remove destinations to clear our minds, and be quiet!

Over the years we have traveled to many peaceful, even dosolate, off-road destinations. We've driven "The Loneliest Road in America" across Nevada, and the dusty roads around Badwater Basin at Death Valley National Park in California. And we rode the ferry to the remote village of Ocracoke on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

And the times we were on the Moki Dugway, there just wasn't any traffic! The Badlands in South Dakota are actually a "good" destination, and are never very crowded.

Then there was the trip to Marfa in Texas checking out those "mystery lights" ... we were very alone, and we loved it!

On this site we are including highlights of some of our favorite remote vacations, along with an assortment of photographs, maps, commentary, lodging suggestions, and reviews.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are all seeking open spaces, and opportunities for family fun, hiking, fishing, biking, plenty of fresh air and a break from the rigors of Coronavirus Lock Downs.
