I see that you've sent a message to Akzag. I'd say you are already hard wired into the Alaska network.

I wish you the best, Bogo, in your relocation to AK. :)

I would also recommend against going for long walks beside the river after a December or January game!!

I hope you enjoy the outdoors. The Northwest and Mountain West are great, but nothing compared to the variety and vastness of Alaska. They like to joke that Anchorage is only 20 minutes from Alaska and that is probably right, but it is also the perfect base to explore in 360 degrees. Wrangle St Elias is 6 times the size of Yellowstone and has 17 of the highest 20 peaks in the US. Countless and unnamed rivers and valleys and mountains. Once you get used to dealing with the bears, it is a great place to hike and kayak and fly (there are no atheists in Super Cubs !!) A great day trip is to Whitter and hike the Blue Ice Trail. Don't miss a trip to Valdez, the road thru Thompson Pass and Keystone Canyon is the most beautiful road I have ever driven ....lucky you ...enjoy...and like they say in Alaska ..." I hope I see you down the trail " Bart

Welcome to the Party ...

a quick link (http://www.zagsonline.org/s/829/index.aspx?sid=829&gid=1&pgid=357) to the Alaska Alumni Chapter page with contact info ...

The Peanut Farm ( Int'l Airport Road & Old Seward Highway ) is one of the larger sports bars in town and dozens of Zags have been known to gather there to watch games on the big screens ( there is also a vocal amount of Coug fans that will show up for the annual head to head tilt ). As long as the games aren't up against football which takes precedence for some reason :fingergun: , they will likely have Zag games on. Once conference play starts, you can almost guarantee it.

And if you'd rather watch at home, between Fox Sports Northwest ( or Root, nowadays ) and the espn family you are pretty well covered ( all covered in the basic cable package, which in my experience gets you all but maybe two-three games a year). EspnU & Fox Regional channels ( and now our friends at BYUtv ) are a bit more and included in the Variety pack. Dish and DirectTv are available, but tricky depending on how close you live to the mountains.

Feel free to PM me about anything else.
