           Publisher, Scott Graber
         As the publisher of the  TRAVEL GUIDE, I
      have over 40 years of experience exploring
      the great state of Alaska.                                  Main Edition of

      extraordinary people from all over the world.
      When most people plan their Alaska vacation
      they book one of the numerous cruise ships
      that frequent the  waterways of the 49th
      state. While traveling in one of these floating
      cities has its place, it does impart a more
      restricted form of  vacationing as groups of
      people are herded on and off the ship with
      very limited time devoted to each port.  If
      sight seeing with thousands of other people        Experience
      isn’t for you, then I would suggest you follow                                          Experience
