Hi all,

I am not on here that much do to work lately, but I was wondering if anyone is from or lives in Alaska? I am moving there in two weeks and I am bringing the Jalpa with me. I would like to find some people to go driving with if anyone is in the Fairbanks area.

Thanks,
David

I'm going salmon fishing to Anchorage in june. It must be beautiful up there, I wouldn't want to live there though, I'm more of the sunshine, sandy beaches type.

Cezary,

man you have to much money if you have two Lmabos... anyway. Send me a PM when you are going (when it gets close) Fairbanks is not to far, about a five hour drive. I will also have my boat... If you want to go Halibut fishing as well let me know... or bear hunting for that mater :eek: lol.

David

I will take some good pictures from the air as I am a pilot after all.

David,
What are you moving up there for? Did the military transfer you or are you out now? Like everyone keeps saying make sure you get a ton of pictures!!

David,

The military has a sick sense of humor. I was on orders to go back to Fort Rucker, AL for the past six months... a year in progress with my branch manager, then a sh!t storm hit and they told me I had a choice been hell and a hard place so I worked a drug deal to go to AK... the "best" solution to the problem.

I am still in the Army though... I am supposed to be the S2 for my battalion i.e. Intel officer... top secret here I come (the average soldier has a secret at best clearance)

I will take pics from the ground and the air.

I will also have my boat to do some halibut fishing from. lastly I have been told do NOT travel without a gun in the car.

I am buying a Magnum Research Desert Eagle .50 Caliber for protection.

I just hope the Army can ship my car without damaging it!!!

The desert eagle is the way to go. Just make sure you have a good set of ear protection in the car. Firing that gun is closed quarters is guaranteed to rupture your ear drums!!! Just remember to never come between a cub and it's mother and you'll be fine!!! :D

I've been to Alaska twice, but just on cruise ships. I'd also like to see your car in the great Alaskan scenery.

I can vouch for the DE .50AE. I have one. That gun makes quite a scene at an indoor shooting range. As soon as you fire it, everyone stops to see what cannon just when off. It's kinda like driving a Lambo. :)

Have fun in AK.

I would definatly NOT go with the Desert Eagle. Its too heavy and just plain unpractical. If you want firepower get a .44 Magnum Revolver, but i would personally go with a .45 Glock.

Jon,

I have a H&K tactical competition .45 with trigger work (lighter pull) as well. Personally I am not a fan of the .44mag, but I do have a Thompson 45-70 government “pistol” as well... after two rounds it goes back in the box :p
