I hate to nit-pick here but I'm from Alaska and I'd like to know where this road is from Anchorage to Nome. n fact I don't think there's more than a three hundred miles of road on the Seward Penninsula (where Nome is) The info below was teken from the Nome/VC website

Highways: No road system connects Nome to any major city.
Nome-Teller: 72 miles west, Nome-Council:73 miles east
Nome-Taylor:87 miles north
Rail:None

They've talked about building one for years. I don't think there ever was one built during the war. I've flown there a few times to go hunting and I've never seen anything from the air that remotely resembles an old road.

I doubt that any Japenese player would invade the USA from here and use the roads to their advantage, but just for the sake of realism is there any way to get the roads taken out of the game in the next patch?

Just check out the map discussion on Australia. It sounds like the map cannot ever be changed for whatever reasons.

The only way to get there by foot is using the Iditarod
