It is not so easy to get ahold of game meat here. Is there a meat market or local butcher that sells game meat there? I have to get my rabbit from kroger. Not so bad. Just curious!

Hey it's your party and you drive the way you want to. Personally, anything that avoids Seattle and/or I-5 is way better in my book. Washington north of Everett is pretty, but east of the Cascades is pretty much a ho-hum kind of drive. Nothing you won't see in Montana -exept Montana views are better. If you don't go on the route you want to, you might regret having followed someone else's directions.

Alaska Sausage has game meat. Mr. Prime Beef usually has buffalo, and we still have Fred Meyers here which is also a Krogers food store.

Mat Valley Meats, about half way between Wasilla and Palmer. Last week they were advertising Elk on their sign.

I still don't get why people from the east coast insist on driving to Seattle first and then northbound, that is unless they are taking the ferry. I like both the Western and Eastern route of the Alcan. To me if you are from the east coast, take the eastern route through Alberta, or even cross into Canada in Saskatchewan and then go north.

I'm not certain on the rabbit...but other game meats can be had at:
Mat-Valley Meats : Gourmet Meat, Sausage & Seafood (http://www.mvmeat.com/butcherShop.html - broken link)

There's always hunting

Yup, go into the Clock Tower building and stay to the left...the bookstore is right there.

If you hang to the right, you'll get the best Thai food imaginable.

That Clock Tower place also offers music lessons in the basement...it is a happening place.

One time when I fetched my son from the Thai place, a foreign couple came up to ask me to take their picture...great huge honking camera...about 40 pounds...they told me not to touch one thing other than the shutter (Thank GOD). Then they said "we want to be in the center of the picture with the CHURCH right in back of us." It was so cute, and since their grasp of English was sort of iffy, I just didn't have the heart to tell them it was a little mall.

Thanks Cori and Magoon.....I'm off in a few days, think I need to make a book run and may just cap it off with Thai......sounds like a good idea I just still haven't had a chance to check out all the little nooks-and-cranny's here.
