I first discovered this forum when I was planning our trip to Alaska last year and posted a few questions that were kindly answered by the "regulars" here---you all know who you are! After seeing your names so much then and now, I always wonder how those of you who originally come from the lower 48 ended up in Alaska and how long have you lived there? Some of you even seem to know each other. I hope this isn't inappropriate. You all just feel so familiar to me, now. Thanks, again, for all your help to those of us down here who wish we were up there!
