    • Non touristy activities

      Alaska Mar 10, 2015 at 9:11 PM

      My husband and I, along with our 9 month old will be cruising to Alaska in May. My husband doesn't like to do touristy stuff so I am looking for some input on non touristy activities to do in Juneau, Skagway and Ketchikan. The activity needs to be short enough to fit with the cruising schedule. Also any ideas for Seward or Talkeetna would be awesome too. Thanks

    • Train near town?

      Talkeetna Mar 23, 2015 at 9:03 PM

      We're trying to plan a short trip from Anchorage to either Talkeetna or Denali with our 6 year old granddaughter in July. If we take the train, are there taxis to get to town, lodging, restaurants, etc.? Any ideas on which place would be more interesting for a child? Also, is the higher priced Goldstar train car worth the extra cost? Not sure what the Adventure class is like. Would it be better to rent a car? We would appreciate any suggestions! Thanks!

    • Just a few questions

      Alaska Mar 15, 2015 at 11:40 PM

      I will be traveling to ALASKA by vehicle in May till August/September from the lower 48/49.

      1. Is it worth the hassle getting gun permits to travel through Canada?

      I have always had firearms and don't travel very much. I know the basics about bears and moose and have no intentions of a bad encounter and would never want to shoot one. I will be traveling with a camper and know the food rules, making noise while hiking, etc. I'm not really sold on bear spray or bear bangers though, do they really work? I plan on camping in remote spots, I know most of ALASKA is remote.

      2. I will be traveling alone and feel much more secure carrying a firearm for personal protection in case I am in a bad situation, mainly with humans.

      Am I being overly paranoid?

      Any help would be appreciated.

      Thanks

      TRAVELING AT END OF AUGUST

      by glomarie Online Now Aug 18, 2007 at 1:24 PM

      Hi:

      We are traveling with my grandson age 10 who have a dream of seeing the artic ocean. When I was in Barrow about 15 years ago, I was impressed with the amount of ice that formed the Artic ocean; today, as I see in photos grand part has disappeared, so we want to take our grandson before it is all gone. He love Alaska's wilderness and he expressed the best when he said "Alaska has no fences, is all open and I love it;" we took him to Denali two years ago and stay in a campground cabin. Is there such thing in Barrow?

      We want to take him on a wilderness tour. Could you suggest one? Also we want some inexpensive accommodations. Any suggestions?

      Thank you

      We have made tentative reservations with Alaska Airlines tours to take a day trip from Fairbanks to Barrow with our kids (13 and 11) at the end of a cruise/land tour in August. A lot of money but sounds like a once in a lifetime experience. But, one major question: we'll bring warm clothes but do we need snow boots? Any suggestions before we take this trip?

      A 29 year old single female and a 22 year old single female both need a place to stay for 2-3 weeks in Barrow, Alaska. Unfortunately we could not find any information on hostels in Barrow.

      Dates: Mid-December 2005 to early January, 2006

      We are both hard working women who would trade labor for housing. Perferred to stay together but willing to seperate.

      Question: Is there any body in Barrow or the outskirts willing to trade?

      Do not need fancy. We can do anything from cleaning to building and we will learn.
      Thank you.
