If you got the bread for a ticket Ill be willin' to travel.
Hi Valley Trash,
Sorry I never responded to this posting. Believe me, if I could afford a ticket to Alaska I'd be heading out that way. I have my computer home page set to the weather page of Barrow, AK so I can follow the winter out there. Nothing says warm like knowing you're at 30* while the folks in Barrow are dealing with -60 wind chill. Seriously, I do plan on making a trip to Barrow one day just to "walk around." I'm told that's about all there is to do there but I have my doubts about that because I discovered there is a National Park there and a campus of the state university. They also advise me to come between JUN and AUG unless I want to buy a whole new wardrobe. Besides that's when the polar bear viewing at the dump is the best.
I plan for my trip to Barrow,AK, which as you know is the northern most US city, to be the culmination of my quest to have been in all 50 states. I have been in 45 - missing NM, ND, SD, HI and AK. I had intended to have each of my kids in all 50 states before they where 18 but wouldn't you know, they grew up too fast. Now they to have to make up the last 5 themselves. They've been to HI but not MI. I've been to MI but not to HI, go figure. I suppose I could squeeze the remaining 5 in for my 15 year old but the ones we need aren't convenient, lay over states. I guess fate wants to test my resolve in completing my quest.
I hope the spring comes soon for you'll out in the last frontier. Take care, Lisa
