I'm 90% sure of the numbers I quoted on this page for taxi and bus fares and the trail mileage. I'll research it this evening and edit if necessary.
Some of the information I posted in Getting in and Getting around is very slightly duplicative of the info I posted on the Alaska page. This page has just the info for Anchorage; the Alaska page is much broader. Edit if necessary...but I guess that goes without saying! :-)
A little bit of the material is from that which I posted on Wikipedia's Alaska page. When copying it, I removed the Wiki links as most were not applicable here. As time allows, I'll study the article database of related articles to see what types of Wiki links you guys here on WikiTravel like, and then I'll go back through and Wikify the appropriate ones...unless someone beats me to it.

First tap is on Thursdays, not Tuesdays. The drink section could use a few more entries of "notable" Anchorage bars -- the Cheechako (can't remember it's new name..), Sub-Zero, or Darwin's Theory off the top of my head. I'll try to add something about those later and I'll fix the first tap thing now. 18.104.22.168 04:25, 21 January 2007 (EST)
The chart shows the "low" temperature of November as 16 degrees, December as 29 degrees, and January as 9 degrees. Is this correct? Does the low temperature jump back up that high from November to December, then drop back down that sharply for January; or is someone putting in inaccurate information?
Charging Your Car?
I was actually born in Anchorage and as we moved to West Virginia when I was 2, I still got to experience the Alaska life through childhood stories. One really interesting fact to me was that the light poles in parking lots had electric outlets so that you could plug your car battery into them so they wouldnt freeze over night and you would still have a charged battery when you woke up to go to work. I was actually wondering if this still existed there as I am almost 21 now, so it's been a while! Kudos to anyone who lives here, it sounded like a real struggle for my parents.
