My snails were hitchikers on some live plants... they never grow more than 1 cm big. But they move really fast (for snails)! 8O
I have lived in north San Fransico CA
and around Boise ID
, vacation regularly to Seattle WA and have honeymooned around Banf Canada. The Northern Rockies are the only thing to get me to leave my state.
Anchorage is really great in most ways! We have a multi-million dollar performing arts theater and a major sports arena! Most big touring bands and theater groups will do at least 1 show here. We have most major national restaurants here, our own local 4 star restaurants that you can wear jeans to and not be looked at funny. We have a decent yearly state fair, and mid-winter we have a week-long fair we call Fur Rondy that can trace its roots back to before we were a state. Less than an hour drive and we have world class skiing, 3 state parks, whale watching and killer trails for 4 wheeling, horseback riding and my favorite... snowmachining! We have just about any thing a big city has, but can get away from it and back to nature with just a short drive.
Can you tell I love it here?
But it gets lonely on THIS board...
I was just hoping there would be a local person to share with.
