    Completely. They're not established campsites at all. I've gotten permission to "squat" on properties (acreage) that are for sale.

    That thing ain't for peeing, Eso.

    It's for spraying my arsehole clean after leaving a deposit.

    update:

    You can see the 'proposed' campsites, some methods of getting there, acreage amounts, prices, etc.
    (gold stars indicate plots for sale that I'm interested in) I probably won't be able to see them all.

    This is a fairly ambitious plan that weather (or other complications) could knock the shit out of...

    The drive from Anchorage to Homer is only 4.5 hours. North to Denali Natl. park (where Mt. Mckinley is)
    is right around 4 hours as well.





    Slick might be happy to know that whilst on this journey of sorts, trying to locate the property I really feel right about,
    I'll be online. Satt phone is looking necessary too, as well as a signal flare gun.

    Bernie: Thanks Hick for the itinerary!

    But you better learn how to ride a moose as I don’t know anyone who rents horses out, other then on guided trips in certain areas. You may be able to rent an ATV, I believe there is a place in Wasilla who rents them. But I heard they are about $200.- a day.




    Hick: Moose riding 101:

    Strategically drop from tree onto idle moose below.

    Scenario 1: Land on rack and die.
    Scenario 2: Miss moose entirely, break legs and get trampled to death
    Scenario 3: Hit target, hold on for dear life and dismount somewhere in Canada to face immigration charges.




    Bernie: You are going to fit right in up here

    Pretty much talking to myself at this point, but hey....might as well get used to it.


    Now then. Guns.

    I never pictured myself dealing with American Airlines and transporting firearms but here it is:

    as rental options are non-existent, probably illegal and I need some range time, anyway.


    So,... putting this here for easy check-backs:



    Traveling with firearms and ammunition

    Laws on the possession of firearms differ between states and countries. Please check the requirements of your destination before you travel. Contact Reservations for international travel requirements and if any portion of your trip is operated by another carrier.



    Requirements
    Within the U.S., you can only travel with firearms and ammunition, including pellet and BB guns, as checked baggage if you’re over 18 years old. You must check them with an agent at check-in and declare that you’re traveling with firearms and ammunition.



    Firearms must be:

    Unloaded
    In a hard-sided container where the firearm is totally inaccessible, or with locks on each end (like a rifle case)
    Ammunition must be:

    In the original packaging from the manufacturer or in packaging specifically designed to carry small amounts of ammunition (made of fiber, wood or metal), with a maximum of 11 pounds (5 kgs) per container or customer. Ammunition is not accepted in magazines or clips.


    Allowance

    There is no limit to the number of items you can carry in your in rifle, shotgun or pistol case, but baggage and oversize / overweight charges may apply.

    Oversize and overweight baggage charges
















    Prolly go with a Ka-bar as last line of defense.

    Would it be more feasible to buy what you need when you arrive...or at least for your first destination?

    As for the bear thing, didn't you say your brother was accompanying you and that you could outrun him?

    Well....Eso, ya know. He's got two kids n stuff.


    IF we surprise or otherwise upset a bear, he'll reach for the bear spray and I'll lower the barrel and we'll see what happens with all of that.

    Hopefully it won't come down but I can skin it - if I have to...



    It's not more feasible because I don't want to hang around Anchorage for 2 days in order to get my firing range hours in. I really need a couple of days to reacquaint myself and bond a little with the gun. I'll have that time in FL.

    And Cape Coral just got a brand new range. The instructors look pretty hip.

    Infamous in Homer, Alaska - "The Cowboy" owns some land in a remote region I'm looking at.

    Working on getting a night or two out in it accompanying him and a couple of his favorite steeds.

    Check this out Eso:

    (PM from an AK based forum):

    "Let me know if I can help. There are a lot of Alaskans on this forum who are helpful. Backwoods Alaskan is the exception. He thinks the state is too crowded. Another good book is The Man From Sheep Mountain, but it's had to find as it's out of print. I live in that general vicinity. My wife is from Thailand, by the way.

    She is from the south eastern part of Thailand from a place near Rayong. We are going off grid for the next 10 days so internet connection will be spotty depending on where we set up. So if I don't reply this is why.

    Lots of Thai people in the Anchorage/Mat-Su area and in Fairbanks. There are even some in the Glennallen and Tok area. There is a Thai lunch truck set up in Healy next to the 49th State Brewing company. Anchorage has a good number of Thai, Cambodia, Vietnam, etc with shops."


    So, naturally I had to check:

    ASIAN Massage Therapy, Anchorage, AK
    Customer Review:
    "Nana is so friendly and helpful. "I will take care of you," is what she says. She does. I will go back."

    Me: Look honey, I can get a Thai massage after rolling down the mountain!

    Wife: Oh good! I was worried about that.

    No, the Cowboy would never 'forum.' That was in reference to some ass-fuck that told me to stay home.

    I've got 3 weeks. The 1st week w/ my brother and 2 weeks solo.

    EDIT: We both arrive in Anchorage on July 18th. Catch a float plane out to the wild the following morning.

    Poor Kid

    If you take to running through habitat with no plan, defense or awareness, bad things may happen.



    A 16-year-old runner in a Bird Ridge mountain race was killed by a black bear he apparently encountered while descending the trail Sunday, Alaska State Troopers and the race director said.

    The victim was identified by troopers as Patrick Cooper of Anchorage.

    A Chugach State Park ranger shot the bear in the face, but it ran away. Rangers and the Alaska Department of Fish and Game were still looking for the animal Sunday night on the slope overlooking Turnagain Arm southeast of Anchorage.

    Cooper was a participant in the juniors division of the Robert Spurr Memorial Hill Climb, said race director Brad Precosky. The close-knit Alaska mountain running community is in shock at the fatal mauling, he said.

    "This is the worst thing that could happen," he said.
