Summer is upon us

Eagle River: Suburb of Anchorage Alaska, Playground for the adventerous, escape for the city people.

In my upcoming move to Hawaii, I know I will miss this small town which has taken a year to fully appreciate it. There goes Summer making everything bearable again! I can almost forget the icy roads and car accident... er wait I have these cold icy pictures here on VT... maybe I won't forget!

Winter Driving

These roads are horrible! My car was totaled in an accident a few weeks back... no messing around on these Alaskan roads! All you ski people, bring studded snow tires!

This is such a cute little town, I'm not quite completely familiar with it yet. I've been here since Feb, and it's still like I'm visiting, but I can give you what I know. This town is a suburb of Anchorage, so all the big attractions (shopping/entertainment wise) are about 9 minutes away on the highway.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Close to Anchorage
  • Cons:Living here equals and ugly commute
  • In a nutshell:Nice town, if you can get it

    I hear that the Alaskan Moose burger is out of this world. Furthermore, I also hear that the local cuisine in your neck of the woods is to die for. Sadly, I can’t speak from experience.
