    • 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

      Canoe advice

      by Caracalover Online Now Apr 11, 2008 at 11:54 PM

      My wife and I are planning a canoe excursion into the Lynx lake area, and although I have experience with canoes, I am concerned with the weather, the chill of the water, and the portages involved.

      We have been living in the southern California area, so our version of cold begins at 60 degrees. We both had childhoods in colder climes, so we have some idea of what to expect, but any information you can share about this area, what we are likely to expect in temperatures both water and air would be helpful.

      Our current plan is for 2009, mid to late August. Is this too late? We are hoping to get 3 nights in, perhaps two at lynx and one at James. My concern is the chill factor, and what provisions there are in the cabins to get warm. It sounds like the stove is for heating only, which I take it means you can't cook on it. I would imagine that is to keep the scents down so bears are not attracted, or am I off base on that one?

      We are looking forward to this so much, I just want to know what to expect so I can properly prepare.

      Thanks, Eric
