The two RV Gypsies in
Downtown Anchorage
July 26, 2009
Anchorage, with half the state's population (about 280,000 residents), is Alaska's only true large city - almost 2,000 square miles. Still, a thousand moose live within the Anchorage city limits, and wolves and bears are seen on it's trails. (none witnessed by the two RV Gypsies however) Anchorage is on a jutting peninsula hemmed in by mountains, ocean, military bases and a state park. The first Anchorage residents were Eskimos, who lived here around 5,000 years ago. The overall population density of Anchorage is 161 people per square mile - compared with the statewide average of just one person per square mile. It has the largest mall in Alaska. It is the hub of the entire state of Alaska.

The two RV Gypsies went to the Alaska Wild Berry Park because they had a 2-4-1 coupon from the Alaska Tour Saver Book, which they highly recommend visitors to buy. They paid $40 at check-in and got a key chain with coupons. But when all is said and done they broke even, except that they got 2 free boxes of jelly-filled candy. At first they were charged extra for food and the movie, but when they spoke to the manager, they were refunded those cost. Was this visit worth it? Not in the opinion of the two RV Gypsies - with or without a coupon.

In the winter when a good meal is hard to find, moose get very creative in the quest for food. The bark stripped from trees shown below is an example of a moose with the munchies.
