  1. I spent my first summer after high school working at a hotel in Alaska. It was one of my better life choices. Some othe most memorable months of my life. I have been wanting to go back ever since. Most of my time was spent inland, but I did get to make it down to visit Seward; such a beautiful place.

    Thank you for your information on fishing trips. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a while. I’ll be sure to check back here when I finally make it around to it.

    Even though I have not fished in many years my dream has always been to fish in Alaska, the travel channel with people fishing the isolated fishing spots always has been an amazing experience.

    I really do miss fishing the streams, lakes and rivers in my home area of Pennsylvania. One day I might purchase new fishing gear and start fishing once again, I always felt so relaxed while fishing and it did not matter if I caught any fish just being outdoors was enough for me.
