I can't eat salmon at all anymore. Just had way too much of it over the years.
I haven't played golf at midnight because the stupid courses insist on closing at night despite the fact that it's not even dark yet. Temps in July are usually in the mid to upper 60s, and rain is always a possibility. If you're coming up on a cruise ship, I'd recommend the Kenai Fjords Tour, the Alaska Railroad from Seward to Anchorage (or vice-versa if your ship docks in Anchorage), and the Alaska Sea Life Center while in Seward.
You don't see that much in this part of the state, so I've never even had the opportunity.
I know you have posted some information about Apple products on here in the past. Do you work for Apple? What do you think of the new iMac?
SE Alaska is literally a subtropical rainforest, so you see a lot of rain there. Anchorage used to see more snow than rain, but over the last 3-4 summers we have seen as many as 34 days in a row with rain. The only "dry" areas are north of the Brooks Range - places like Prudhoe Bay, Barrow, Deadhorse, and ANWR.
I'd just give him a snowmobile with enough gas to go 50 miles (no real roads in the bush) and point him in the direction of nothing. The wolves would take care of the body, and I'd report the snowmobile as stolen. It would take the State Troopers six months to search for it anyways...
My experience with gold panning is limited to to the tourist traps between Anchorage and Seward, although there are a couple of real gold mines in the state.
Before moving to Alaska, the coldest place I had been was Keystone/Breckenridge/Arapahoe Basin, Colorado for Spring Break 1991.
I had come up for Christmas in 1994, so I already knew what to expect as far as weather was concerned. What I wasn't prepared for was how long winter lasts...
I knew that the longer the process dragged out, the less likely we'd see Tee in Knoxville next year. Family can often cause you to hold off on even your biggest wishes.
Right now, I've had to put that on the back burner due to some family issues. I'm still planning to move back, but I have to stay up here at least for another six months in order to get this stuff taken care of.
No, although I have met both Sarah and Bristol. Don't like either one of them, in all honesty. Bristol is a spoiled little brat, and having a kid did not cause her to grow out of it.
I've never had you on ignore...
Blackout curtains in the summer, getting out of the state in the winter is how I cope with the daylight extremes. As far as sports go, I occasionally play some pickup basketball at the gym, but there isn't much to watch in person other than UAA basketball (their hockey team sucks), Alaska Aces hockey, or AFC (local MMA promotion). The HS football players up here look like middle school players in Tennessee, and I can't get behind a season that starts the first weekend of August and crowns its champions after an 8-game regular season and playoffs are done before Halloween. I see moose regularly around my house, and occasionally see bears, wolves, and foxes.
I dated a girl who was part Alaska Native, but not a full-blooded Alaska native. Dating in general sucks up here. There's a saying that "The odds are good, but the goods are odd." which summarizes the dating scene perfectly.
Deadliest Catch is bigger than it should be. When the one captain was airlifted to Providence hospital, there was a vigil outside the place made up entirely of DC fans. Alaska is far too big to see all of it, but I have seen everything from the Kenai Peninsula to Anchorage and then between Anchorage and Fairbanks/North Pole. FYI, Guy Fieri just did a holiday themed Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives in North Pole/Fairbanks.
The Alaska episodes take place in Fairbanks and along the Dawson Highway, so nowhere near Anchorage. So the answer is none.
There is a place called Moose's Tooth that makes some amazing pizza. They are also a brewpub, so you can get your pizza and good beer in one stop. They have a spicy pepperoni (pepperoni with pepperoncini peppers) that I love.
