Rivers are the highways of the North. That’s been true since human beings first arrived in North America, and it is still true across a vast expanse of Alaska and Canada that is practical to cross in the summer by no other means. On the next Outdoor Explorer, we’re talking about floating these long, remote rivers and the journeys you can make into solitude and into your own mind, as the banks slide quietly by.

With the price of oil hovering around $40, Alaska’s state government faces a catastrophic loss of revenue that could cause loss of critical services and an economic crash.

The president is visiting Alaska, and it’s more than just a fuel stop this time. On the next Talk of Alaska, we’re taking a trip into the annals of presidential history in the Last Frontier.

The Resurrection Pass Trail is a gem. Running from Hope to Cooper Landing, this 38 mile route is probably Alaska’s best backpacking trail, but it’s also great for mountain biking, snowmachining, skiing, snowshoeing and running. On our show, we’ll talk about a week-long hike with kids and a running event that does the whole thing in a single day. Along the way, we’ll provide the information you need to do the Resurrection yourself.

Today we’ll be discussing the changing role of the military in Alaska. The state has unique training grounds and conditions, and that’s no small part of why it hosts the kind of large-scale exercises we’ve seen this summer.
