I'm moving to Juneau, Alaska! Tribal language gig, etc etc. Also, I have decided that I should stop depriving my Siamese cat of the experience of staring at a glacier.
Oh, and the Toyota Corolla All-Trac (175k) I'm now driving was bought in Alaska by her parents when she was a teenager. Or course it has no AC for obvious reasons...
Just out of curiosity, have you been to Juneau before? I've been to Anchorage a number of times and while I love the scenery, I was less than enthralled by the city. I can't imagine that Juneau is going to be that much better. On the other hand, I love being in a larger city with plenty of nightlife, bookstores, museums, etc., so Alaska doesn't work for me.
If you get to Anchorage, check out the Double Muskie Inn (spelling?). As I recall, it's a four star restaurant outside of Anchorage. Strange place
You'll have to come meet us at the dock when we pull in next summer!
I've never been to Juneau, but I knew someone who had spent quite a bit of time there. It's really quite a bit different than Anchorage, from what I hear.
Anchorage is the way it is from numerous boom and bust cycles. Anchorage is the center for trade for all of Alaska and has lots of shipping and transportation links. In many ways, Anchorage is what it sounds like, it's a place to anchor, a dirty port town.
Juneau is much smaller, much more isolated. The bigges
