What to Expect

You can expect many wildlife sightings; moose, caribou, buffalo, mountain goats, as well as numerous varieties of fish, and birds. Occasionally a glimpse of bears or wolves (at safe distances).

Saddles are fitted to the cowpoke as well as possible. Saddle sores are a right of passage, a trophy of a long days work in the saddle. Each saddle will have saddle bags with limited space for raingear, a change of clothes, and that day’s lunch. Other personal belongings can be kept in the chuckwagon and delivered at the next night’s camp.

Cowpokes bedroll will be packed to the next frontier campsite. Dinner will cook over a campfire, songs will be sung, bs will be spread. Breakfast at daybreak comes early this time of year in Alaska, the sun hardly sets. Eat breakfast and be on your way to more frontier expeditions and one day closer to those saddle sores we were telling you about. 

We encourage cowpokes a hands-on experience with horses from catching them in the morning to saddling them and feeding them at night. Other hands-on ranch experiences can be expected but varies depending on the week (see descriptions above).

Cowpoke Hygiene

Now that you’ve made it this far I’m sure you’re wondering about a bathroom and shower. Now let me ask you this, do you think John Wayne showered more than 2 times a month? Baths will be drawn and heated in a hillbilly hot tub. Cowpokes don’t have good hygiene, cowpoke rule #12. Bathrooms are your tree of choice, toilet paper provided dependent upon pandemic demand. 

Baths will be drawn 2-3 times each week. Guests can bathe in nearby creeks or bring baby wipes. 
We recommend booking a hotel before & after to clean up.
