    Looking for a trailer shop somewhere in Los Anchorage or the valley to look at a Polaris 4-place sno-go trailer....I think I'll need the surge brakes replaced: confirming that is beyond my knowledge; doing the actual work is beyond my laziness quotient. :sad: Any recommendations or experiences?

Does anyone know if this is doable this year (we'd be flying in / motel-ing / renting a car) in the age of COVID? I understand the annual festival is cancelled this...

    Big Lake (near Anch) Fishing?

    Recently ended up getting a place on Big Lake (i.e. near Houston, AK). It's been an interesting experience. Haven't done much of anything there since 3 days before dirt (i.e. when I was a kid). Recall there was some fishing back in the day (that would be the '70's) but haven't done anything...
