Hope you have a great time with the State Fair.  What an array of Entertaining stars!  My wife's first cousin moved to Anchorage 25 years ago from Kauai, Hawaii.  Kid's have grown up and they enjoy Anchorage.  Must be getting cold about this time?  I guess compared to Hawaii.

Very cool! I was just in Alaska in June and I check out the Skagway News every now and then. I'd love to return and visit the Anchorage area.
