    I think you Alaskans are too busy enjoying Alaska to have any time here. heh...heh.. I know there are a few guys from AK here that pop in and out. You need to spread the word around up there. Maybe @Bob can send you a Tundras.com sticker for your truck to help. :thumbsup: FISH ON!!!

    (There are a few of us here that have spent some serious time up there. I sure as hell want to go back.)

    Headed to Kotzebue in two weeks. It's a small native village about two miles long. Only a few miles of roads in the whole town that go from one end to the other. Last year I saw a new tundra there! Crazy.

    I knew you would respond . I never made it Kotzebue, but I did get a chance to fly in to a village with my boss to install radio transmitters/antennas near Iliomna Lake. Pardon the miss spelling. My stupid "smart" phone spell checking. We were with 2 state engineers. We got stuck with bad weather. A local native volunteered to drive us down to another airstrip were the AK state folks could send a plane to "pick" us up. I have a video of the Otter spinning around until it stopped. Spun a couple of slow motion 360's before it stopped. Pilot gets out, "Let's go, I've got a hot date tonite." Shit. Bush pilots are a unique breed to say the least.The good life.

    Forgot to add we were driven down a frozen river 25 miles down stream. See, I'm a Texan by birth, no offense. If you are a Texan, go to AK. You'll will realize what BIG is. Not brag just fact.

    I was flying with my buddy who had a tail dragger. We were out in the mountains off the Denali and the landing was scary, but the takeoff made me wish I got life insurance. We poked around for a bit and when we were ready to leave he looked over this cliff edge and we hopped in the plane. Took it as far back as we could and he told me, "When I tell you to, put your fu**ing chin on my shoulder, and then slam back into your seat when I tell you to." I gave him this look and he said it again.
    We started to take off and about 15 feet he screamed, "Now," and I rested my chin on his shoulder. We dove off the cliff for a second and told me, "Back!" And we had just enough lift to not smack into the cliff front in front of us.
    They are crazy up here!

    Alaska is my second home. It's an amazing place. But you have to get off the road system to really see the true alaska.
