Kristen- Juneau Driver Guide

by ATJ Posted in I ♥ Alaska, Off the Clock, Only in Alaska
I’m not joking when I say that driving has always been my biggest fear. As a kid I wouldn’t even drive the family tractor around the farm, and at sixteen I would have been quite content to delay taking driver’s ed until at least 18. And now I am driving...  Read More

by ATJ Posted in I ♥ Alaska, Only in Alaska, Tales from the Rail
“Alaska?  Why, Alaska?”  That was the response most of my family and friends had when I made the decision to go to college in Fairbanks, Alaska.  It was only supposed to be for a semester and now 17 years later I am still here.  While going to school I had...  Read More

The first year I came up to Whitehorse, I had never travelled or experienced any other parts of Canada. This job gave me the opportunity to experience a part of Canada most people don’t get the chance to see. I also had the opportunity to expand my knowledge of Canada...  Read More

Gideon- Director of Southcentral Motorcoach Operations

by ATJ Posted in I ♥ Alaska, Off the Clock, Only in Alaska
Alaska. The Frontier with a capital “F”. My images of the Great Land were shaped by Jack London’s “To Build A Fire” and the television show “Northern Exposure”.  A land of extremes inspires extreme stories! My first visit to Alaska was in January, 1992, in the middle of dark winter...  Read More

Bernadette- Rail Services

by ATJ Posted in Goin' Cruisin', I ♥ Alaska, Off the Clock, Only in Alaska, Tales from the Rail
I grew up in Alaska, having moved here at age five.  My dad was a pilot for a small air-taxi service out in bush Alaska, and he flew everything from mail, groceries, and dog-teams  to med-evac flights up and down the villages in the Yukon-Kuskoquim River Delta.  The most well-known...  Read More

Shey- Front Desk

by ATJ Posted in I ♥ Alaska, Off the Clock, Only in Alaska
Nestled into the mountains, valleys and rivers of Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula lays the town of Cooper Landing. To some, the community is but a minor speed reduction on their whirlwind tour of southwestern Alaska; the tiny grocery store and the hole-in-the-wall coffee shop appearing only briefly as they gaze from...  Read More
