WELCOME TO THE LOST FRONTIER
I suppose it's not kosher to tamper with the nom de guerre of Alaska, yet for those that have been here awhile--what else can be said. It doesn't even seem like the same place these days. But then I heard similar from those already here when I came first onto the Northland, yet the last three decades have wrought changes much more far reaching to what was, than anytime before, at least it seems that way to this Ol' Hoss. Yet there is hope...
Regardless of changing times there is still a magic to Alaska, and the whole Northland in general that can capture a soul, and maybe even transform one to someone they never knew existed--you just have to work a little harder than in the past to find it. Hopefully this site will help in that effort--pointing you to some of the good times, awesome places and even good food along with putting in front of you, useful facts and information whether you be a Tourist or Cheechako (a greenhorn of the northern bent) having not lived the 4 seasons (2 really, winter and summer in the far North), or full fledged Alaskan looking for something to do--and with a diversity to encompass the monied and the meager to boot.
Cheers to your further envolvement, watch your topknots--Lynus O'Brien
