    The weather sure looks like Alaska!
    Where are you hunting?
    It’s so fun to see your family outdoors with you!

    Best of luck to all going! I’m envious!

    It was in the 50s the first day and 70 the next.. the wind was blowing so it made it nice. Plus it was great to get away from the smoke!

    Elliot hwy on the northern side of the road is my guess. We launch out of Manley during moose season.

    Geez I didn’t think there was more than one heading north! I thought I drove every road in Alaska, but that was 20 years ago:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:!

    Hmmm...as a matter of fact I retired the last day of July 20 years ago this month on a Friday. We packed the pickup camper over the weekend and headed for Alaska on Monday. Wonderful trip and memories!

    Well today is the day that they arrive. I'll be headed to the airport tonight at about midnight to pick them up then in the morning its off to camp. The caribou herds a really scattered and still in small herds vs bigger ones and its supposed to rain. So it could turn into a hard hunt with the couds blocking visibility. Hopefully in a couple of days we will have stories and alot of pictures to share with everyone!

    Good luck, stay safe and pass some of that rain down here. It’s too hot and dry in wasilla. Only a matter of time before another fire starts.

    Best of luck! I can't wait to read the follow-up reports either.
    Stay safe out there.

    Damn. I knew you’ve had rain but not that much. I’m still debating to go around here for early bow moose. Too hot and I don’t think I could process it fast enough.
