Hello from alaska

New member here wanting to say hello. I have a twin engine 30 foot glasply that I cruise Prince William Sound with, but as I'm going to retire soon, I'm wanting to move up a bit. Thanks for all the great info, it is much appreciated.

Hello, Welcome!

We're in Alaska as well, and have cruised the west side of PWS for many years.

Thanks, Valdez is very nice. I spent a couple of months there many moons ago putting in the ocean fiber terminal. My son also lived there for a few years when he was assigned to USCG station Valdez.

If we could get a slip in a reasonable time we would seriously consider moving our boat there in the summers. The sound has allot better cruising opportunities, and Valdez isnt that much further of a drive than Seward.

Alaska, huh? Well, I am in Florida, so I guess that we are just about as far apart as it is possible to be and still both be in the continental US. :-) But welcome aboard.

I was born in Alaska when it was a territory and Alaska has never been part of the "continental US".

I have lived in Juneau, Anchorage, Nyac and Platinum near Bethel and most recently Thorne Bay near Ketchikan. After 8 years in Thorne Bay we returned to Washington State along the Skagit River.

I've also lived in Massett BC.

Eric, I know Alaskans are rugged individuals and all but despite their best efforts they're still on the North American continent. Just separated by Canada from the lower 48.

Um, last time I looked, it was. But whatever. Perhaps it broke off and drifted off somewhere other than the North American continent.

Every Alaskan knows that we call the rest of America...

"Outside"

The typical use of the term will be...

"What are you doing on your R&R?"

And a response would be...

"Going outside"

Yup ... looks like I'm inside now.

Suites me very well at this time. Need to make a trip to Fisheries Supply soon. And to a prop shop and .. and ...

I miss the land up north our friends. Our best friends in TB have sold their house and are moving to Oregon. Statistics say those that go to live in Alaska on average stay 5 years. I spent 1/4 of my life there but then I started out there. Don't know if the stat mentioned includes natives.

These guys drive crazy here though.

To be a real Alaskan You still gotta wrestle a grizzly and make love to a native.
