Wanted to ask you since your the only person I "know" in AK. What kind of tires to you run on your truck. Is a studed tire a must, or can I put chains on my agressive all terrain tire? Just trying to plan ahead. Also I heard about a ferry that can take you from WA to Haines AK. Have you heard of this. If its true I may be able to transport my powder and primers. Also Is a four wheel drive vehicle a must. My wife has a small crossover Pontiac Torrent. we just bought it a few months ago and she likes it, but I don't know if she would be able to get around up there. Don't want to bother you just curious.
