Anyone here from Alaska? What part and how long and what do you do there?

I'm in Chickaloon, at MP76.3 of the Glenn Highway and I'm the owner of the General store there. I also make things from fur, hats, mittens, pillows - you name it. I am owned by nine dogs and am married to a wonderful guy for 26 years now.

Who's next?

I am 76 miles NE of Anchorage on the Glenn highway, or about 30 miles NE of Palmer. We are considered SouthCentral here. I am originally from upstate NY :)

Freezebanks, eh?? Way too cold there - not that it isn't here, but 70 below.. no thanks! I'll keep my 30 below ... lol

How long has it been since you've been here? Wasilla is a booming metropolis (hahah) now and they're anticipating 30,000 within the next 10 years. I'm glad I'm on the 'other' highway!! lol

I went to NYC once... and never went back. The wave of people there is just WAY too much for me!!

I have friends who live in Homer, AK
Homer is a pretty place and the fishing is supposed to be great down there - especially during dipnetting season.

I am from the Syracuse area, I grew up in Brewerton and Baldwinsville. And yes, it's changed that much. We moved back here in 2000 and it's changed a lot.

Let me see if I can figure out pics for this forum... each one is different...

These should be clickable thumbnails so you can see a bigger pic....
