RE: [RC] Alaska any one? - Bob Morris

Southeast Alaska is very wet, heavy undergrowth, cloudy and not conducive to great horse experience, you would be better off with a boat as that is how most travel is done. Boat or small aircraft.


We lived in a construction camp south east of Juneau for two years. Sea food for meals was the best. Wore rubber boots all the time as well as rain gear. There was three miles of road from one part of the job to the other.


If you go, it will be an experience of your lifetime. Very close knit communities. You will also learn why the Russians were drunk most of the time they occupied Sikta. I am sure you would have to ship in all feed stuffs as weather is no the best for hay growing.

Subject: [RC] Alaska any one?


So we are looking at a job in Alaska.  Does any one know if horses are easily managed in any of these areas.  Craig, Juneau, Ketchikan, Petersburg, Sitka, Thorne Bay, or Wrangell.  We are trying to research on line, but I thought I would pick ride camps million brains. The job site is flexible to any of these areas.  I would love to go, but I need my ponies..  So any input would be great. It is a great opportunity for him, and it sounds like an adventure.  Only thing holding us back is the big "can I take my horses?"
