    Alaska

  2. Anyone have experience storing food on a boat?

    Food and water
    So we're a commercial fishing family and live/work on our 48' troller in Alaska all summer. But food storage is a big pain. I'd like to have a lot more food stored but space is at a premium and our cabinets are very small/oddly shaped. I'd love to talk to someone who has some experience with...

    Wilderness Survival, Hiking and Camping Forum
    Hi Folks! This summer I started up at the Arctic Ocean in Alaska and hiked south over the Brooks Range.

  4. A thing I learned about water in Alaska.

    Alaska
    I moved to Juneau, Alaska in 2006 and instantly loved it for many reasons. The constant fresh air, the attitudes and work ethic of the locals, especially the ones who had grown up to full maturity there, and THE FRESH WATER. I lived in the Mendenhall valley and the water, as many know, is...

    Wilderness Survival, Hiking and Camping Forum
    Theres this show I watch called Vice. Was catching up on it today and watched this episode. Made me a little jealous, and a little apprehensive. In knowing that I pretty much have no idea what to do in these situations. But at the same time, it is very thought provoking. And a little...

  9. Moving to Alaska

    Tomorrow I'm flying to Alaska. This is a life changing event, I'm thinking, and I hope to buy a pick up truck later this fall and a serious weapon for bear country. Any suggestions? I've got a good job lined up at a ski resort but who knows where the journey will lead. Thanks:)

  13. Felony and firearms... Alaska state troopers

    So I'm watching Alaska state troopers now and something interesting came up. Trooper pulls over a guy, typically asking if he had guns or other weapons in the truck. He says yes, ak and a pistol, and I'm a felon but allowed to have guns. That's what got me wondering. I thought if you were a...
