fairbanks alaska: A walk down the Chatanika... - 08/02/10 05:15 AM
Seeing the site, I understood the attraction.  Covered in towering spruce, the tall cut bank would be a beautiful place to build a  cabin. No cell service.  No television.  No internet.  For some, a nightmare scenario.  But for a few, it's pure heaven. 

It was less than two hours drive from Fairbanks, but standing ankle deep in the cold, clear water of the Chatanika River we could have been hundreds of miles from home. The only noise present was the sound of the water rushing over the rocks at my feet. "Wonder what's around that next bend?" he asked as … (19 comments)

fairbanks alaska: And so it begins... - 11/15/09 07:39 PM
Although some were hoping we would see a kindler, gentler Old Man Winter this year, it seems the old boy has other plans.  According to a weather genius friend, and confirmed by NOAA, we're going to see record cold temperatures sweep across the Tanana Valley.

Bring it old man.
I could probably live without seeing the mercury slide down to negative 40 and colder.  Doing anything outside at those temperatures is just not fun, and can be life threatening if you're not prepared for it. Note: Always be prepared for it. 
But, I well remember winters in the 80's … (28 comments)

... or not.
This seal is one of many adorning the vault doors in the old Courthouse.  Originally built as a Federal Courthouse in 1932, the building is now office condo's in downtown Fairbanks, Alaska.  This is one of about a dozen vaults in the building, most of which have had the lock mechanism removed... but a select few still remain.

fairbanks alaska: Fairbanks, Alaska Real Estate Market Update - Nov 22, 2007 - 11/24/07 09:25 PM
Fairbanks continues to feel the effects of the housing slowdown. 13 homes sold this week ranging in price from a $115,000 fixer-upper to a unique $395,000 hillside property that spent more than 14 months on the market. This represents a near 20% drop in the number of home sales from this time last year. Three new construction properties went off the market, including one zero-lot line in Lazelle Estates. Not to worry, if bland, homogenous, expressway adjoining townhouses are your style there are still more than two dozen available. 549 homes are currently available for sale with an average of 138 … (2 comments)

fairbanks alaska: Fairbanks; The Golden Heart of Alaska - 11/04/07 02:35 AM
The city of Fairbanks is located in Interior Alaska near the confluence of the Chena and Tanana Rivers in the Tanana Valley. We are 360 miles north of Anchorage, 125 south of the Arctic Circle, 3,500 miles from Los Angeles and 4,200 miles from Washington, DC. Nicknamed "The Golden Heart City", Fairbanks is the largest city in the interior region and the second largest in Alaska. Founded in 1901 by Captain E.T. Barnette as a trading post on the Chena River, the community grew and was eventually named after Senator Charles Fairbanks. The discovery of Gold in the hills just north … (0 comments)

fairbanks alaska: Energy Conservation Tips - Fairbanks Alaska - 10/26/07 12:14 AM
Energy Conservation Tips in Fairbanks, Alaska.  Here are a few ways to help offset your energy use during Alaska's cold, dark winters.
Your mortgage payment and property tax bill may be pretty much a fixed cost, shaving the cost of your utility usage is relatively easy to do.  As the old saying goes; a penny saved is a penny earned. 
 1. Go Fluorescent:  Replace your incandescent bulbs with compact fluorescent ones--they are four times more energy efficient and can provide a much more natural-looking light. Savings?  Roughly $60 per year. 
2. Get Reflective:  If replacing your old windows isn't within your budget … (0 comments)
