Welcome aboard. My family lived in Anchorage from 1960 to 1966. My father was in the army until 1964 and then worked for the highway patrol and also the fire station at the airport. i seem to remember going to Whittier to visit one of his friends that was the fire chief there and it seemed the only way in was plane, boat or train. We took the train. i will always remeber walking around with their kids and all of a sudden we found ourselves standing on a roof. We had walked up a snow drift and not realized it.
Was there not a problem with ice when you kept the boat in the water all winter? Beautiful country up there. I was in second grade before i realized the whole world wasn't white all winter.
