Favorite thing: Kodiak Island is a study in limits. If you have no boat, there are less than 100 miles of developed road throughout its 3,600 square miles. Boats can only drop off passengers on the shore, but the rest of the island is largely impenetrable. Put-ins must come from bush planes at a high price. Otherwise, most of the people you see along the roadways are the same folks and faces you saw in town. Beaches, parks and "rural" lodges normally comprise the most significant draws.
