Wednesday Wrap-Up! K2, Travelgram Show, and More…

Here I go again. Home from Homer, then back on the road to Salt Lake City in the early a.m. I’m off to visit Big AK Kid who is anxiously awaiting a return to Alaska where he’ll make tracks to Fairbanks and his senior year of high school, god willing. So, mom makes her own tracks for a wrap-up visit (it helps, too, to see temperatures in that fair city soaring to a roasty, toasty 90+ degress; ahhhh!).

Today’s Alaska Travelgram Show was a plethora of information about our favorite glacier-landing-Denali-flightseeing-fishing-airline, K2 Aviation/Rust’s Flying Service. For over 50 years, the good folks of Rusts and K2 have been ferrying visitors and locals to their favorite viewpoints of southcentral Alaska. Find the podcast HERE and check out the special deal just for Travelgram listeners. Yes, 25% off their new Ultimate Denali NP Hike/Flightseeing trip, where you and the fam can be whisked up to Moraine Lake for a wonderful afternoon of hiking and/or relaxing, complete with wine, cheese, and smoked salmon. Sign me up!

K2 also has specials on their website; fun ones guaranteed to give everybody a discount of some sort if one only pays attention. Take the Triple Trivia Discount: get three out of three trivia questions correct and you’ll win $50 off your flightseeing trip. Hey, better than a poke in the eye with an ice axe, eh? Or, for Alaskans, how about that awesome Birthday Special, where one receives the percentage off equal to age in the birthday month! So, let’s say Scott was going on a trip near his birthday; hey, he’d get more than 50% off! Whoa.

Speaking of Scott, don’t forget to sign up for my intrepid co-host’s regular airfare deals on the Alaska Travelgram website. Scott McMurren has air travel down to a science, and judging by his deals today, I’m thinking everybody should pay attention. Remember, when airlines are mad at each other we all win.

Take a look at our latest post for Kids These Days! Radio, also heard each Tuesday at 2 p.m. on 91.1 fm KSKA in Anchorage, repeating at 7 p.m. KTD is winning all sorts of awards for their powerful and inspiring content, and AKontheGO is proud to be a part of it. This week we’re talking about AK Fam’s relaxing trip to the lovely village of Seldovia, across Kachemak Bay from Homer. Everybody needs a time out, even on a busy family vacation, and Seldovia fit with our plans perfectly, especially that hike along the Otterbahn trail to Outside Beach. Check it out HERE.

I’m off to dreamland, friends. Keep up with my latest journey via our Facebook page, Twitter feed, or just by logging on to this website, where we’ll keep you up-to-date and informed about the latest and greatest in Alaskan family travel.
