Understanding Distance in Alaska

So for those of you that don't know, this is how you translate Alaskanese to regular American, in matters of distance

It's best to visit in the summer if you don't like snow and cold. If you wanna see how beautiful it can be in winter, come up around Christmas time 馃檪
@AKOutdoorGirl Appreciate that. It's a place I'm considering later this year for a backpacking trip and Sept. was my window. No issues with cold but flying insects? No so much. :)

@AKOutdoorGirl I have gotten swarmed by mosquitoes on the Kenai Peninsula in June before. Will they be out as early as April in Anchorage?

@tk9999 it depends on the weather really.
Long distance 馃槀

Some day I would like to go up there, see what I've heard so much about.

@tk9999 yep, know exactly where that is 馃檪

@AKOutdoorGirl I tried to drive to Seward the day after and almost went car sledding on the pass. I turned back about half way through. 馃槵
I'll save that for April, maybe they'll have some whale watching tours going on.

@tk9999 yeah, that road can be very treacherous even for experienced drivers.
