11/10 for guts and determination. Well done.
If I ever to a WTR in my 4 wheels, I suspect a ferry to Japan and airfreight to anchorage would be possible too. Don't the Americans have some wierd rules about mud on cars and steam cleaning them. As I recall my last visit to the states, they asked me if I had visited a farm on the landing card I was given. Note a long time ago. Did you have to clean anything - if so what was required?
