I made two shipments of snow to the east coast and both melted upon arrival. So I am no longer going to waste my time in this frivilous endevour. Please notify us when you have frost in the ground for more then 7 days and we would be more then happy to give you enough snow one at least one ride for the 06/07 season without having to trailer your sleds to Alaska.
I just came back down from Lost Lake. Lots of snow but it needs to set up for a day or 2. It has been snowing on & off for 3 or 4 days and is snowing pretty good up there as I type this. It is heavy & wet. We spent more time stuck & shoveling that I wanted to so we came down to ride the lake(s). The base on the hill below the cabin is 3 1/2 ft. The trail is excellent since the hordes have not yet arrived, no ice on the chute at all, just fresh snow Winter must have started at last
I started out in Mass a few years back. When I was old enough to get out of my folks house I did just that. Joined the military and never looked back. Leave the nest, see the world. Expect some hardship & suffering. It will develop your character and help you to mature
What do you mean how far from New York?? Head west till you hit Seattle then turn right and drive some more. Be prepared to learn some lesson on the differences between the west coast culture and east coast culture. They are very different. If you are from the inner city it will be even more pronounced
I would not associate Ak and west coast, not even close. The biggest problems in the state are caused by the West Coast mentality. Alaska has it's own and the 907 brotherhood runs deep.
As a former Rural Resident East Coaster, retired military guy, I picked up on the differances quickly. I was born and raised on the East Coast, spent 5 years in the Midwest (Ne, Ia, Mo, ND, SD, Mn, etc, etc) and 32 months on the Left Coast(couldn't leave quick enough). Alaska most resembles the Midwest more so then either coast. Considering most folks (pioneers) were moved here during the great dust bowl/depression era that would explain more of the midwest attitude. Yes there was the big influx for gold, but the displaced midwest farmers is what had settled most of south central.
As far as how far, it's 4985 from Anchorage to where I use to live in Scranton, Pa.
I agree. After living in western Washington for 10 years, I don't think Alaskans are anything like the westies. Although there is a pretty stark contrast between the eastern and western parts of that state. Once you get over the Cascades the people aren't bad at all!
