Went to the Alaska ticket counter today to get some info on shipping stuff down to the states. I was told that I could not ship regular air freight past Seattle ( I live in Nome) unless I was a known shipper. You can become a known shipper by filling out some BS paperwork.
I was not aware of this. Thousands of people travel to and from Alaska all year. I assumed they sent stuff air freight regularly.
Now I was told that I could use their Gold Rush service, but that is a more expensive form of shipping. Gold Rush is handled by FEDEX after Alaska Air hauls the box to Anch.
So anyone know about this? Isn't there someone who posts here regularly that works for Alaska? Seems like this will really slow the movement of hunting trophy parts next fall.
