    No. It's Nome, right?

    The idea was that I could drive from here to there. I can also drive to Juneau but I need to take 2 ferries at some time.

    I've taken the ferry across Lake Champlain and the Lewes - Cape May ferry, so it's not that big a deal. 90 miles may be different, so it costs a bit more and takes a bit longer.

    With the way these city-dwellers brag about surviving, you'd think all of Alaska was like the Brooks Range.

    I figure they're all like all of the reality TV shows about Alaska tell us they are.

    HA! I counted them all up once, I think there have been over 50 reality shows about Alaska. Almost all of them are not "real" in any sense of the word. We know Marty Raney, and the things he can tell ya Ö

    From ADN:

    "According to NCAA, the (UAF) hockey team used ineligible players in every game played from the 2007-08 season to the 2010-11 season. Over that span, the wins and ties will all become losses. 4 wins and 2 ties came against rival UAA".

    UAF is 56-86-12 vs. UAA.

    Ferguson Resigns As Hitmen Head Coach

    The Calgary Hitmen Hockey Club today announced Head Coach Dallas Ferguson has resigned due to family reasons.

    “Dallas approached me last week, stating his wife is unable to continue to work her current job in Alaska while moving to Calgary as originally planned. As a father to two young girls he does not want to live apart from his family again this year. We respect this decision, supporting that family comes first and wish Dallas all the best in the future,” said Hitmen General Manager Jeff Chynoweth.
    Ferguson led the Hitmen to a 24-37-9-2 record in his one season as bench boss finishing in fifth place in the Central Division.
    The search for a new Head Coach will begin immediately.

    I, for one, love Alaska and love having them in our league. Yes, the trip up is a killer, but so worth it. Anchorage was much larger and cosmopolitan than I envisioned. Suze was the consummate host. Every WCHA fan should try to make the trip at least once. We made it an extended trip, went to Seward, Denali, Talkitna (did I spell that right?) where we watched the Super Bowl. That was like the Alaska you see on TV. One B&B open and one bar. Folks came to the bar with food to share and most of the guys had a dog with them, sleeping under the table. The bartender and I were the only women. Giants beat the Patriots and one of the fans cheering on the Giants was a black man from New York City. We all fed off his excitement and it was a great time. The mister then drove us to an AFB where he was documenting the old facility, they put us up in the new part. Some of the nicest quarters I've stayed in the military. Even if there was an inch of ice on the inside of the windows in the morning. -50. Wish we had made it up to Fairbanks, but didn't have the time. Must put that on the bucket list.

    Wait, you were in Girdwood for the Super Bowl when the Giants beat the Patriots? Shirtless Guy and I were in Girdwood watching the Giants beat the Patriots...how did we not realize this at the time?

    I like the one with the really screwed up, inbred-like family...that is probably too general, given all that have existed. Can't recall the name of it. Terrible TV, but ok for a *** laugh for 5 minutes.

    we were all up there the weekend before for the Tech game - I remember we ran into you and Shirtless at the Anchorage (or Alaska) Museum. but you couldn't have been in Talkeenta. there was only one place to stay - a bed and breakfast and we were the only people there and the bar was the only thing open and surely we would have seen you - it was small. what/where is Girdwood?

    it would have been the 2007 or 2011 Super Bowl. good gawd, I can't remember that far back. Jamie was still coaching and Dave Shiyak for Anchorage.

    flew around Denali?? that must have been awesome. I really need to get back up there. I haven't seen Fairbanks and would love to do more exploring in Anchorage. We drove to Seward too. Most everything was closed. But it was a beautiful drive.

    Girdwood is about a 45 minute drive down Turnigan Arm, near Mt Alyeska. Thereís a cool new brewery in Girdwood and you can take the tram/gondola up the the bar/restaurant at the top. Pretty incredible time.

    Yeah, we were in Girdwood, while you were in Talkeetna. Kinda went opposite ways out of Anchorage.

    Thanks. I just puked a bit in my mouth.

    After that experience I was so terrified of the concept of "natural women" that I couldn’t watch NatGeo for 3 months.

    Brooks sounds good right about now, as I currently sit in Point Lay, a village of 200 people. Majorioty of the town went beluga hunting these past couple days. Took a picture of a small blonde grizzly they shot a couple weeks ago. Played basketball with some kids with a cloud of mosquitoes annonying us every step. Good thing I brought extra food as Ravn Airlines cancelles flights left and right, but arrive just to take off without mentioning hey there is an extra seat you could've used.

    Diatribe done.
