At the last plenary session of the PWG in Savannah, the issue of our Alaska
meeting for next summer arose again.  Laurie Laslo of HP San Diego has done some
research that seems to indicate that the costs associated with an Alaska meeting
are well within what we normally expect to pay for our PWG events.

In order to move forward on this, please forward your constructive comments
including proposals, alternatives, etc. to the pwg at pwg.org mailing list.  A
final decision will be made at the Tucson meeting so please get your comments in
ASAP.

Here is a summary of her finding:

-----
Anchorage is accessible 12 months a year via one of three methods of
transportation: plane, boat, and automobile.
The Anchorage International Airport handles 230 flights per day, with
service from all major carriers, and flight times are not what most people
in the Lower 48 imagine. For example, New York City to Anchorage is only
eight hours of actual flying time, Chicago is five and one-half, and Seattle
is three.

The Alaska Marine Highway System operates ferries between Alaska's coastal
cities and the State of Washington. Vessels that can easily accommodate
automobiles travel through tranquil waters known as the Inside Passage.
