Planning a Trip to Alaska

I have a couple of weeks of vacation and a bunch of sick days that I need to take this year, so I have started to think about what I really want to do with the time. Of course I was thinking about a lot of things that I might do, but of course I have to think about money as well as time. My brother in law and decided that we should go up to Alaska. He and I were at Bass pro shops looking for a gun cover and we decided that maybe we could take the trip of a lifetime. The thing is that you want to make it practical. I would sort of love to drive up there, pulling my camper. That would be really interesting, but obviously it is going to burn up a lot of the time that you have if you do it that way. You would likely end up spending a week to get up there and then on the way back you would need another week. In contrast if you hope on plane that is going to be a day up there and another day on the return trip.

Of course there are all sorts of thing that you could do up in Alaska. The big thing is going to be salmon fishing, but that means you have to time the trip to mesh with the salmon runs. Of course you have to think about other anglers when you are fishing for salmon in a place like Alaska, but I am not talking about human beings. The competition up there is going to be scientifically known as Ursus Horribilus, or the Grizzly Bear. They have big brown bears as well and all of them like to eat salmon. They some times like to take fish from people too.
