If you get to Talkeetna, ask around for an old cuss who goes by Dog or King Dog... on second thoughts, nah, it's best to let sleeping dogs lie.

linvillegorge Well, fuck. If it doesn't snow, maybe I can go halibut fishing. I wonder when the spring brown bear season is? I know a guide up there. May have to reach out to him.

Food and other supplies will have to be air lifted in or via ocean going vessels. The port is ice free so shipping is viable.

Alaska DOT thinks that they can get the road open in fairly short order but they cannot do anything right now because the avalanche danger remains so high. it is unsafe to put highway crews to work there. They only need to clear the roadway which can be done by hauling the debris off in trucks. The actual avalanche debris field is going to be there for some time with a "canyon cut through it for the road.

The forecast is not looking good for a return to winter up here. It was 58 degrees in the Anchorage area today and the hills around town are bare and brown. Alyeska is closed indefinitely due to lack of snow. I dont see this changing much in the next month or two and by that time, we will be close to entering our normal breakup season going into spring. This season is pretty much a bust.
It's only about 40 right now here in Anchorage (which is still very hot for January) and we have some snow in the forecast for this weekend. Hopefully things turn around quickly.
