    I got surprised there my first trip to AK to do bush flying. Thought it would be convenient to be right across from the field. Not. Wasn’t even a dead bolt on our door! Ended up cancelling our room late at night after realizing what type of area it was and taking my gal into town to one of the major chains. Good decision.

    Let's see, to reply to that post from 1.5 years ago you would have to have re-read the thread from the start, looking for stuff to respond to... I say re-read because you posted to it back when it was new, and after I posted that.

    And actually, reading further, it looks like we already had this exchange, or one very similar to it, back then... Why dredge this up again?

    Reminds me of another thread going strong right now, like 14 pages and climbing. :D

    To my knowledge nobody was ever arrested for the tire slashing at Merrill Field.

    The part of Anchorage may not sparkle for the tourists but it isn't dangerous. What used to be the city dump was adjacent to Merrill. It's been covered over and Merrill has expanded on top of it. If you wonder why no glitter hotels are around there? Learn the history.

    I was there in '74. That would be a significant historical event. I'm surprised there isn't a statue. ;)

    (Stayed at a hotel within walking distance)

    Threads are history, and we know the destiny of those who don’t learn by it from forgetfulness or misinterpretation.
