  • Makes sense. If the ruskies invade, we'll be able to build that road relatively quickly compared to the amount of time it will take to build a new harbor.

    Came here to say this, but it's more likely to be about the need to boost our naval presence in the Pacific.

    I'd say the harbor (and the airfield) are consistent with the prevailing analysis of emerging threats.

    Looks like that harbor could hold maybe one Navy ship.
  • Was this where the bridge to nowhere was going?
  • they are there in case global warming opens up the northwest passage .so they can grape their slice of the pie .
  • grab. not grape.

    damn autocorrect .

    How many ships need to be docked there? They're likely talking about a quick refueling station, perhaps emergency repair dock.

    It's not going to be San Diego, but fire up google maps and take a look at where Akutan actually is, maybe mapped alongside Adak and Midway, then make your own assessment of how critical that harbor would be in the event of naval hostilities in the Pacific.

    Aw hell, I'll do it for you.

    No, that was a completely different pile of pork by bootstrappy, fiscally conservative Alaskan Republicans.

    Funny thing. Alaska couldn't exist without Federal aid to build their infrastructure.

    I'm ok with funding projects to help states and communities. Anyone have any info whether this one is one of the 'good' projects (further down the line, when the road is built and the town can use it)?
  • Don't worry. I've been in this mess before.

    Here's how to fix everything:
    1. Press Ctrl + Shift + C
    2. In the console, type: motherlode;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!;!
    3. Profit

    grape pie sounds... interesting.

    Uh yeah, they could just un-mothball Adak ...
  • On the other hand, a naval installation in Barrow is starting to make a helluva lot more sense. The Coasties are spending a lot more time up there these days..
  • Considering global warming will make that the new Alaskan Riviera, it looks like a great place for a future Sandals resort and casino.
  • *read headline*

    Must be Alaska!

    *click*

    Yep!!

    Keep being bootstrappy ultra red state Alaska. Oh and how are those socialistic oil payments going?
  • If you build it, they will come
  • serial_crusher: Makes sense. If the ruskies invade, we'll they'll be able to build that road relatively quickly compared to the amount of time it will take to build a new harbor. occupy the harbor and airport before we know it!



    Fixed that for you.

    The Department for Redundant Departments has a sub office in charge of Military Redundancy preplanning and backup efforts. Their Senate subcommittee for Redundancy in Redundant Military Outposts would like a word with you.
  • That sounds like the cities I built in SimCity.

    /the simulator didn't check to see if the seaport had transportation access
  • cannotsuggestaname: grape pie sounds... interesting.


    It's actually not bad
  • 2 miles? No road? BFD. Generally speaking, there are no roads in the western half of Alaska. That's an area about the size of Texas.
  • That's ok. Illinois has the $313 million Mid America Airport that has no air service.
  • I always ended up doing that in Sim City too. I got all excited when I realized I could build harbors and airports so my little town that barely had running water would have an airport taking tourists in and out of the middle of nowhere.

    Of course, that was Sim City and I could just re-start. This is real moneys.

    Fund fund bond?
  • I can actually say I've been to Akutan (aka Akutraz). I took a Grumman Goose amphibious plane to get there. The town has one bar, which served only Lucky Lager ($5 a can).
