Incase anyone was wondering where ever so loved and popular best friend of everyone *cough* Sparkmaster has been the past week and a half, the answer is some place very far north where you can see Russia from every house (thanks Tina Fey!).
Yes, I was in Alaska. Yes, it was awesome. The scenery is nothing like you would see in the lower 48. Its stunning, incredible, and a bunch of other adjectives. The weather was great too. One cannot complain about sunny and 70F every day 300 miles below the arctic circle.
My point: Go, now, before it breaks off into the sea and goes to hang out with Hawaii and California.
