RE: RV on a ship

...I know some of our DOD groups that went to CLEAR AIR FORCE STATION, ALASKA for required inspections in my working years had to take their own GOVT own vehicles with them. This is located in about the center of Alaska near Anderson,AK. Roy Ken Not sure if Clear is operational anymore. Never heard anyone speak of it... Location wise, it is on the highway system south of Nenana. If the shipment of those vehicles was anything like it is now, they get shipped out of Texas - Galveston, maybe? - and arrive in Anchorage 6 weeks later. Someone would then have to drive them to Anderson, AK, or I suppose a company could be hired to transport them. Gov't alternatives to shipping the vehicle from TX include accompanying the vehicle on the ferry (does not pay for private cabin) or driving to AK from your current duty station. We chose to drive, and don't regret it for a second. Dodge dually pulling a 25' gooseneck horse trailer and a GMC Denali pulling a Kia Spectra on a dolly. USAF gave us 11 days to make it from OKC to Anchorage with 2 kids (1 was an infant), 1 dog, and 2 drivers. It was AWESOME! Even boondocking along the road on the way up.

RE: carry bicycles or small scooter to Alaska?

We loved having bikes in Seward and Valdez. Easier to zip around on a bike than look for parking spots for the dually. Bikes are handy in downtown Anchorage, too. If they are easy to take along, don't add a lot of weight and don't take up storage space, why not take them.

RE: camping with a smart car

We have a Smart car. If you are tent camping, you should have plenty of room in the car for a tent, sleeping bags, clothes, etc. You won't have room for a massive cooler, though. But you should have plenty of room for short fun tenting trips... I know there is a member here on RV.net that does tow a small pop-up tent type trailer with his Smart, but IIRC his is a diesel model. Not sure I would tow much of anything beyond a motorcycle pod with the gas model of Smart that we have...

RE: Covered RV Storage in ALASKA

There was a RV-geared indoor only storage lot that opened up in south Anchorage back in 2010 or 2011? I think. It was pricey, but it even had indoor garages with full hookups and venting so that the RV's could be lived in while there. No idea on the name, or if it was successful and is still open. Heard about it via an article in the Anchorage Daily News. You could also check with some of the RV dealers or repair facilities in Anchorage. They may know what you are looking for.

RE: Housebreaking a male Border Collie!!!!!! Update pg 6.

Be aware that once you have tossed an item (toy, rock, stick, shoe, glove, etc) for a Border Collie that knows fetch: 1. that dog will continue to bring the item to you to be tossed until your arm falls off 2. fetch increases a Border Collie's physical stamina without tiring the dog for long 3. that item is only good for tossing and is no longer good for self amusement Regarding #3 - Our BC's will drop their balls down the stairs, chase them down to the bottom, bring them back to the top, drop them again. Over and over and over and.... Sadie our BC also LOVED the infant stage of our boys - where they where just learning to sit and throw, and would sit in one spot and throw what ever she brought them. Of course, they could only throw it about 3', but they would do it forever, and giggle the whole time. That infectious little baby giggle that they soon outgrow....

RE: Halibut fishing

We use J&J Smart Charters in Ninilchik. Great retired military owned family run company. Fishing out of Ninilchik means you are on the fish faster than coming out of Homer. You also get to be pushed out/pulled in by skidders which is an amazing and unique experience (no docks). I am always in awe of the courage of the unfortunate kid who gets to stand on the back of the skidder and release the boat!

RE: To trailer or not

Taking the trailer means you can put a small CF freezer in it to store all the fish you are going to catch! You can also load it up with cheaper frozen foods at the "big" towns along the road system. We've taken a freezer with us a bunch of times. It will stay frozen for days if it is full in Alaska temps, and when we get to warmer temps in the lower 48, we plug it in nightly. Never had a problem with anything thawing.

RE: The best BLT & home fries in Alaska (and any where else too)

Moose's Tooth for unique and AMAZING pizzas and beer. In Anchorage. Heck, even Sicily's Pizza beats all the typical lower 48 chain store pizzas! Hula Hands for Polynesian/Hawaiian food. Also in Anchorage. Wasabi Garden in Eagle River has the best sushi we have ever had anywhere. Piccolinos in Eagle River for Greek/Mediterranean food.

RE: Hauling horses in a toy hauler

You can definitely use a living quarter horse trailer as a toy hauler, but I would NEVER use a RV toy hauler as a horse trailer for the same reasons others have listed. RV's are simply not made to haul live animals like horses. Horse trailers can definitely be just as nice, or even MUCH nicer, than RV's. They are generally built A LOT sturdier and heavier than typical RV's. The main issue, IMO, that a person would run into when using a horse trailer as a toy hauler is width. Some living quarter horse trailers are only 6'9" wide on the interior, with fully exterior wheel wells. Many are 8' wide on the exterior, but still have the wheel wells bumping into the interior which brings you back to the 6'9" limit... Most fifth wheel toy hauler garages are built above or behind the wheel wells, so you have the full 8' or more interior space to load toys into. Cost wise... you will pay a lot more for a LQ horse trailer than you will for a toy hauler. A LOT MORE. A cheap model with a slide out will run you close to $150K, a decked out "super slide" model with full bath, mid tack and lots of bells and whistles will run well over $200K. You can find "weekender package" LQ horse trailers for about $30K. Cabinet with a toilet, "cowboy shower" in the horse compartment, tiny sink, tiny fridge, tiny microwave, bed in the nose over the hitch, and no seating area. Good enough for a weekend when 90% of your time is spent outside the trailer.
