Happy to serve people in Alaska

I don’t look at website stats very often, but with a little free time tonight I was just curious how many people in Alaska visit this website. I was glad to see people have visited it from Utqiagvik, Kotzebue, Nome, Fairbanks, North Pole, Unalaska, Bethel, Kodiak Island, Ketchikan, and many other locations. Alaska holds a special place in my heart, and I hope the pages on this site have been useful to the people there.

Where in the world is President Obama?

In case you wondered where Kotzebue, Alaska (population ~3,300) is, I hope this map is helpful.

One point worth mentioning is that there are no roads on most of the west side of that map. For instance, there is no way to drive from Fairbanks to Nome, Talkeetna to Nome, Fairbanks to Barrow, Nome to Kotzebue, etc. There is one road from Fairbanks to Prudhoe Bay, and it’s called the Dalton Highway. That’s where the “Ice Road Truckers” drive.

Also of interest is that President Obama is nowhere near Alaska’s state capitol. In fact, Alaska is so big, Juneau, Alaska is not even on this map. It’s off the map to the lower-right.
