    It's a beautiful day today. Low 80s and lots of sunshine. A few puffy clouds. No mosquitos here.

    I wasn't, no, but this thread has made me consider it.

    Honestly, I have never had a problem with mosquitoes. In Florida we have them everywhere, all year. They don't bite me.

    Don't get me wrong. If I were a small, winged vampiric creature, I wouldn't bite something like me either.

    Re: Are You Planning a Vacation in Alaska?

    I've seen people go berserkers from mosquitos. They actually ran in circles in panic trying to get away from them. I once read in an Air Force survival manual that there are more tons of mosquitos per square mile on the North Slope of Alaska than anything else that lives there. That being said. We've had a pretty good year around here.

    I'd love to go backpacking in Alaska, but only if I can take a carbine in .458 SOCOM with me..

    Re: Are You Planning a Vacation in Alaska?

    When I watched the movie "Proposal", I fell in love with Alaska and decided to go and visit Alaska. But then I realized that the movie was actually filmed in Massachusetts! So I guess that means that I need to go and visit Massachusetts now....

    You don't need a big rifle, just a traveling companion you can outrun.

    The Volkswagon commercials featuring Fairbanks are also fake and filmed in the lower 48.

    big rifle is good insurance. As for the companion, I've got a few people I hate from my old hospital job....
