User submitted facts and corrections:
  • Alaska doesn\'t have counties, it has Boroughs and Municipalities. Also, I am not sure where you are getting your milage, is it \'as the crow flies\' or road miles? It is really off as well. Hard to take this site seriously when I can pick out 3 or 4 errors just from scanning the page for 60 seconds. added by CB
