    • 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

    • From North Carolina to Alaska

      Alaska Mar 24, 2015 at 6:31 AM

      My fiance', cat, dog, and myself are pulling my travel trailer through Canada to Alaska. I know gas prices are high up north but what would be the cheapest route through Canada to get to Alaska? Most scenic route? Also i have my carry permit in NC and it's reciprocal in AK but how do i get my pistol and rifle up there? Thanks! Any help and\or advice would be VERY helpful!

    • 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.

      by pogopat Online Now Jun 7, 2009 at 1:59 PM

      We are coming to go a mission trip--vbs for a small church there. Most days will be working with the children from 1-4. I would like to go kayaking, but do not want to go with a group tour type thing. Is there anyone who does kayaking around this area more one on one?

      Also...might be interested in hiking.

      Husband will probably be want to do something more to my interests.

      flying from Anchorage and back

      by a96m97 Online Now May 16, 2006 at 6:47 AM

      We have booked a 3-night bear viewing tour in Uyak Bay from Aug. 23 to 26.
      First, we will have to fly to Kodiak from Anchorage. Then we will reach Uyak Bay by floatplane.
      I have heard the weather is often rainy and/or foggy in Kodiak Island.
      I think the floatplane trips' schedule may easily change.
      But what about the flights from/to Anchorage?
      Does it often happen that they are cancelled or delayed because of bad weather?
      There are several daily flights and I don't know whether I should book much in advance or later on or ... ?
      When a flight is cancelled because of weather, does the airline usually try to move people to the next available flight automatically?
      Many thanks for any suggestions about this subject.
