Why aren't the yellow lines denoting lanes just taped on for the 3 weeks of summer and yellow snow used everywhere else?

Why do rental car companies even offer kia spectras as a choice in alaska?

does putting moose antlers on the front of your car give you the same respect as steer horns in texas?
1. HAHAHAHAHA Not answering that. They way we looked, we fit right in

2. Not sure, but I agree. You cannot see the lines anywhere now; parking lots or streets.

3. That is a summer car, at best. They are cheap? And easy to spin around? LOL

4. Absolutely

There are basically 2 seasons: Winter and really short days, and Sumer with really long days.

Here in Anchorage, the shortest day of the year (late December) will hit daybreak at 9:30 am and dusk at 3:15-3:30pm

In the summer, the sun set'* at 2:30-3:00 am and rises at 4:30-5:00 am, and this is the end of June / begining of July. And in the summer, it is never fully dark at night. You can play golf at 2 am and have NO problem seeing whats going on, or where the ball is

Why is the Deadliest Catch the coolest show on TV?

Gotta love those ruffian crab fisherman.

I'm very intrigued by Alaska. Honestly, I love looking at the pics you post. It'* very interesting to me...for some reason. Probably because I can't relate.

So, post more!

I'm so intrigued that my wife is planning a road trip to AK in June with her sister. I'm then flying into Anchorage and we're driving back to MI through WA, OR, CA, NV, etc. If vacation time allowed I'd be on the road trip out there too.

Oh ya, post more pics!

Why is Soldovia so fun to be at, and why do people have cars there, and drive around the town in them? (my aunt/uncle have a house there 15 ft tides FTW).

EDIT: Cruising around downtown anchorage/the coast is pretty cool in bikes too..
