    Isn't Anchorage the capitol of that funny shaped State down between Mexico and Hawaii?

    Well, that explains why we've been getting so much snow lately...

    Could the big storm you just had possibly blown Anchorage to a new location??

    You must have somehow got Garmins 2013 chip before it was even released. I guess thats gonna be the Lat/Long of Anchorage after the big one hits in 2012... I knew I should have invested in Muldoon!

    FWIW, Garmin assured me today that they put Anchorage on their G2 cards in the right place...

    Uh huh, sure they did. When Palin said she could see Russia from Wasilla, was she perhaps looking at her Garmin? Call me crazy; I'll stick to paper maps/charts and a good compass, thank you very much.

    Better perhaps to be lost outside of Anchorage, than to be found inside of Anchorage!
