How big is Alaska?

Education and Local School NewsThis map shows how Alaska would look superimposed over the lower 48. Maps like this should be in every school.

Okay, I know this is a really old post, but I am just now seeing it and it made me think of something really funny. A friend of mine was trying to order a part for her truck from somewhere in the lower 48. When the lady asked her where they would be shipping it to, my friend said, Wasilla, Alaska. ........the lady's response was:

"We only ship to the United States of America, is there somewhere in the USA that you could have it shipped to?"

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!?! This lady actually argued with my friend about Alaska being a part of the US. What is wrong with some people????

I've run into that when in the small states as well. People didn't believe I drove to Alaska!

And it's never too late to comment on an article, that whet they're there for, to be discussed.

HAHA! I actually had to argue with someone about that. He asked how I got to Alaska, and I said "I drove". He then began to tell me that is is technically impossible to drive to Alaska, you have to fly, cuz they don't have roads up there. I couldn't believe what I was hearing.

This is a great map, would be better if Alaska places were shown on it.

Excellent idea, and I'd bet someone has already done that. I'll look for it, maybe it would be a nice GIS (Geographical Information System) project, along with our major roads and waters, if it wouldn't get too cluttered. A large printed map would have more room for information.
