Can't Get There From Here

Juneau is the first city of Alaska, but did you know that you cannot drive there from anywhere?

You can fly into Juneau or you can take a ferry to Juneau, but you can't in point of fact drive there. There are no roads into Juneau. Can you assume not being able to drive to the State First city in the state where you live?

Normally, a lot of affair and a lot of authority takes place in a state's Capital. Not having easy approach to it would construct lots of problems, wouldn't it? Well, not in Alaska.

In fact, up until a few years ago Juneau was two time zones or more away from the rest of the state. A few years ago Alaska had five time zones. Now we have only two time zones and our First city is now in the same time zone as most of the state.

Governor Frank Murkowski has a haulage plan that would bring in the house of a 65 mile road from Juneau to Skagway by the year 2010. That would fix Juneau by road to Anchorage, Fairbanks, and much of Alaska.

Of course, you would have to drive by means of part of Canada to get to Skagway. Not a big deal, since Canada still likes us.

However, many Alaskans are not too delighted by the idea of construction an exclusive road to Juneau. According to Skagway commerce owner, Jan Wrentmore, "It will be as dim an idea in 2010 as it is now. "

Part of the issue is that Skagway and Haines depend on the aquatic ferry coordination for business, since Skagway and Haines are the northernmost boundary for tourists who want to arrive in port the ferry and drive. The fear is that Juneau would befall the northernmost stopping point for the ferry if a road is built from Juneau to Skagway.

"We lose our condition of what we've had for 100 years," said Jan Wrentmore. "It creates a competing port. "

Of course, the rest of Alaska doesn't actually care about the competing port issue. The point is that the rest of Alaska doesn't actually care about the whole issue. Our legislators at the State Funds seem to get along just fine the way belongings are currently.

Change comes at a snail's pace in Alaska and I would guess that this issue will be talked about for a good many more years to come.

If we talk about it long enough, in due course it will befall a mute issue. We won't need a road. In the end we'll be able to teleport ourselves to the Funds if we wish.

Beam me up Governor.
