    Hello All,

    Thanks!
    -Kyle

    Welcome! How's the music scene in general up there?

    (I spent a bit of vacation time in Anchorage, Kenai, etc. a long time ago now. Really some fascinating country there and Anchorage was pretty cool. Even had sushi and a good beer.... and lots of smoked salmon.)

    Thank you! Not sure about the music scene, moved up here in June from Pittsburgh, before that Washington(Walla Walla, Oly, Seattle) and before that Massachusetts. I promise I'm not on the run from the law.

    Alaska is unfathomably stunning. I feel lucky to have access to these wild places during the pandemic.

    I was lucky to spend 4 calendar years in eagle River / worked in anchorage.

    Best 10 years - experience wise - in my life.

    When the world opens up, there are some small or medium music venues (mooses tooth, etc) to catch a show.

    Watch out for that low humidity... I split a solid spruce acoustic top bc i left it out in my living room too long one winter.

    Welcome to TDPRI.

    We're having a cold front blow through down here tonight. I think you all would call this "summer weather."

    Our family had an Alaskan cruise planned for May of this year. Well, borders in Canada closed, and the trip was cancelled. We really wanted to see your state. Maybe another year.
