Alaska is beautiful country, I'd go just to go, how often does one get to go to Alaska?

My wife is trying to get me to go with her to Anchorage on a business trip in July.
I'm reluctant, is it worth the trip if you have no other reason to go?
Shucks pete - I'd love to see Alaska - badly.
From Anchorage I am sure there'd be many possible day excursions you could make in a rental - amazing place. July too - even better
I'd jump at it.

Well the thing is, it's one of those business trips that are optional for her - some seminar or other. So it's all down to me wanting to go or not.
Add to that the fact that I'm phobic of ice, snow, cold, anything northern...
But July should be over 60 degrees, right?
Man, I'm so spoiled living here in TN.
Definitly go to Anchorage. I used to have to lay over there one or two days before flying 1500 miles to the tip of the Aleutians. I would take little bus trips to all kinds of sights near Anchorage. It is mild in the Winter compared to other parts of Alaska due to a maritime climate. Also there are great places to eat there and don't forget to try the fresh salmon it is fantastic. I always enjoyed my short layovers in Anchorage. The Aleutians are another story.

Lots to see within driving distance of Anchorage...I've been in Anchorage many times...lived in the Aleutians for 7 years!

I am going to Anchorage on Sunday. I won't be there for long but I'll post what I can find.
No I'm flying from Anchorage to Washington D.C. (Dulles) before I come back home. No gun for me on this trip.
If you are there for a few days, try to get down to the Kenai Peninsula for some sight seeing. The drive to Seward or Homer is very memorable. Or go north to Denali if the weather is nice...that is one awesome mountain. If the skies are clear, you can easily see the mountain from Anchorage, and it's about 150 miles away...
Definitely go if the opportunity is there, and be sure to get a window seat on the airplane...

You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

I lived in Anchorage from 1969 to 1981. I'm sure I wouldn't recognize the place now.
When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier.
