Welcome...


...to Alaska, the 49th State.  The Great Land... the Last Frontier... taunted early explorers and still defies modern-day researchers, while exerting a fascination that attracts more and more people looking for that 'something different.' The hint of urban sophistication in Anchorage and Juneau rapidly gives way to the frontier, where outdoor survival skills are among the most useful attributes a resident can possess.

Alaska has lush rain-drenched forests and barren windswept tundra. There are lofty mountains, still-active volcanoes, and spectacular glaciers, as well as countless lakes and endless swamps. Along with a handful of modern high-rise buildings there are countless one-room log cabins. Within hours of dining sumptuously in a first-class restaurant it is possible to tread on ground that has never known a human footprint: ground belonging to the grizzly bear and the wolf and shared only reluctantly with human beings.

This site will be under continual construction.  It would be to your advantage to check back frequently and see what's going on.
