Great job Nick!!!
Your podcast was awesome!!! It is so cool that in Alaska people get around by dogsled. I thought Alaska was just a cold,dark,empty place. But by listening to your podcast, Alaska sounds like a great state to visit! Once again, great job!!!

Nick,
Alaska has so many of the biggest and longest things, it is surprising it has so few people. I guess you can have a lot of space to yourself in Alaska. I think I should start training for the Iditarod.It sounds like a unique event.

Nick,
You did a nice job presenting the information about your state. I had a chance to visit Alaska and I really enjoyed it. I visited Juneau by boat. I also had a chance to go by helicopter and walk on a glacier. Hearing your poldcast made me want to go back to Alaska and hike some of the trails on Mt. McKinley. I never had a chance to do that.

Good job Nick. I never thought that is could get as low as -83' F. You did a very good job on your pod cast! It is weird that it is a very BIG state but doesn't have a lot of people! See you in school!

Nick,
Good job! I just thought Alaska was just some big, cold state, but I was so wrong.
I would love to ride on a dogsled! It sounds like so much fun!
I liked that you streched your words out.

Nick,
You did great!!! I thought it was so interesting that Alaska's highest temp. was 120 degress. I also thought you spoke very clearly. I could understand every word. Before I heard your podcast I would've never wanted to go to Alaska. But after hearing about the Ukon River, the wildlike, I think I will go pack my snow suit.
Great Job! Emilee
