A buddy of mine and I are deploying to Afghanistan in April and May. One of the perks is we will get 7-10 days of post-deployment recovery time, but it has to be used in Alaska.
I have only been in Alaska for about a year, so I am looking for some advice. We want to hear what some of your dream trips would be and maybe why. Our budget will probably be right around $1000 each for airfare. Our thought is to fly out somewhere to packraft / camp / and fly fish. We have all the gear so it is just a matter of coming up with a cool idea on a place to go. We are not really looking for any honey holes, but rather an idea/river that would be good in June to experience an exciting part of Alaska. Thanks for any thoughts.
So the questions is:
** If you could go on any trip in the state for 7-10 days in the beginning of June, where would you go?
