Oh - you need to know what you are going to win right?! I have three prizes, so three lucky people will win! The number will be drawn by the random number generator at random.org (as soon as I figure out how to use it!) :) You can tell me which one you would like and I will try to accommodate each winner! This will close Midnight Alaska time Aug 1st. Please leave me a way to contact you - either Blog or email. Good Luck! You will be notified on Tuesday Aug 2nd.

I don't know much about Alaska, but I have an interesting story. One of the players on our college football team in Wyoming was from Alaska. For his training, when he went home, he would run using only a straw to breath out of to simulate the high altitude of Wyoming.

Alaska seems like a lovely place to visit. I would always put it on my America quiz to give to my Japanese students (what is the biggest state). They usually needed an extra hint (It's cold) to get it right.

cstironkat said...

CanCan said...

I've never been to Alaska, but once someone brought me a souvineer from there, which was dried moose poop called "Pooppuri". So apparently in Alaska, they sell poop as a souvineer.

Alaska is my hubby's favorite hunting/vacation spot. My parents got to go there on a cruise and loved it too. My inlaws have also been there, but I never have. The pictures they all showed me are breathtaking though!

When I was very little Juneau was the only other state capitol I could remember (beside my own) because my grandpa would always say "Did 'Juneau' the capitol of Alaska is Juneau?"
What nerds. lol
alexandra dot hancock at gmail dot com
i'd love the second prize

EG said...

I like prize 2. I don't know much about Alaska, but there's a book that I wanted to read about a man building a cabin there. Someone told me about it on an airplane and I've never been able to figure out what it is. Do you know?

Someone once told me that in parts of Alaska, you have to put vaseline on your face when you go outside. Is this true?
I also know that the science teacher who works with me went to Alaska in the Spring and she went hiking at a waterfall near Juneau and saw a WOLVERINE!

Melissa M. said...

I'd love either #2 or #3, but especially #3! I know Alaska has no or very few statue laws about homeschooling. :) In other words, you don't have to register with a state or private school to homeschool your children.

Playful Professional said...

I would love prize 2 or 3.My aunt almost moved to Alaska last summer.

Thanks for the giveaway!

Annie said...

Anchorage has a lovely airport! I was there in 1979 on a flight from London to Japan. I'm afraid all I got to see was the airport!

Great giveaway, thanks

jenstill said...

My mother has always wanted to go to Alaska and go on a whale-watching expedition. I have read that there are more men than women there, but I guess that's really all the trivia I know about the state. All of these are terrific gifts, but I already have #1 so would prefer 2 or 3 if I win. Thanks for the chance!

Tara said...

Alaska is big. And lovely in the summer. And cold in the long winter.

ihchicky said...
