That's awesome....I'm a little jealous.

Make sure you get out and enjoy the wilderness.

I've been to Alaska three times.

If I were younger and not tied down, I'd be heading out there to work in the summers like you are.

Never been to the Copper River area....spent some time in Anchorage, Denali, the Kenai Peninsula, and Katmai National Park.

Speaking of bucket lists, Alaska is on mine. Can't decide if I want to fish (I know some people who have a boat and have tons of connections) or if I want to take a cruise. Make money or spend money.

Congrats at ya.

My Step-son lived in Alaska for two years. He loved the summer. He is in Utah now. He fell off a fishing boat and ****ed up his foot. Good thing for Obamacare as he was still on our insurance policy. He also messed up his shoulder in Hawaii this past summer. Oh what it is to be 23 and invincible.

Have a great summer. I would absolutely love to do some hunting and fishing up there. You have to share some pictures with us when you get back.

I don't know how the algae blooms are up in Alaska but right now in Nor Cal the ocean is filled with toxic acid.

that's code for Twink Lover.... and when he is going to see Bears, he doesn't mean Grizzly.


Dude, seriously, that is awesome- and I applaud you for getting out and seeing some of the country- who know who you'll meet in passing, what an exciting opportunity.

Remember when in Alaska:

Don't serve Champ Bailey

Make everyone do a 40 before feeding them

Stop by Russia for me and get some Vodka

I heard the salmon were bad in Alaska, but I am not sure it was a reputable source and to tell you the truth I am kinda old and tired anyway. If it happens it happens.

My home state (born and raised)!

Here's a few "musts" for you:

1) The Alcan highway: drive, don't fly. Northern BC/Yukon Territory is the most beautiful area in all of North America. Throw a tent in the car, and while you can do the drive in 5 days non-stop, give yourself two full weeks, and smell the roses. The Lake Muncho area is mind-blowingly beautiful. Whitehorse is a super-hip little town of bohemians. The Liard hotsprings are an experience as well. I can't emphasize this enough -- you have to drive the Alcan!

2) Kenai River / Russian River: if you like fishing, then give yourself 4-5 days in July to get down to the Kenai Peninsula to catch the salmon run (kings, reds, silvers, throw back the chums/dogs and pinks unless it's late in the day and you're getting skunked). There are several campgrounds along these rivers, bring your tent and don't worry too much about the bears -- they won't bother you as long as you don't bother them (pack your pepper spray though, just in case).

3) Homer: stunningly beautiful town, visit it in June/July/August, and you'll think about it for the rest of your life.

That's all I got for now, but PM me if you want more advice/info. Be sure to stop by my home town of Soldotna, go to Sourdough Sals, and have a Yukon Burger for me....

Kupesdad can also fill you in on places in the Anchorage area, I believe (if he's still checking this site)....

So will I, for the 10th year in a row! I will be in Homer 6th-8th fishing for Halibut, maybe Kings, and Seward 12-14th fishing for bottom fish and Silvers. Have you been there before? There is a reason we go back every year.

Not true for areas I have fished the last 10 years(Homer, Seward, Russian River). The halibut and salmon are the best I've ever eaten.

You bet! As you know, you can't go to Homer and not have a beer or two at the Salty Dog.
