This actually is not true, very easy to plan a trip in my opinion. A necessary reference is definately the Milepost. There are few roads in Alaska and if you look, most tours and any independent travel goes to the same places, usually Anchorage, Denali Park, Fairbanks, sometimes Talkeetna. Only one road about 350 miles, Anchorage- Fairbanks. As I mention- be sure to factor in the travel times for any touring of Alaska, ballpark- train Seward- Anchorage 4.5 hours, Anchorage- Denali Park 8 hours, Denali Park - Fairbanks, 4 hours, bus/car 3, 5+, 2 hours.
