    Small Boats

    by AlbuqRay Written Sep 2, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Small boats are a primary means of transportation on the Kuskokwim River and its tributaries in the summer time. There is a small boat harbor on the east side of Bethel. Since it is ~40 miles up the river, there are no tides like on the coast.

    A common way to get around in the Alaskan bush country is by float plane. H Marker Lake is just outside Bethel. Some people park their float planes there. Kuskokwim Wilderness Adventures is one of them.

    Don't Complain About Your Gasoline Prices

    by AlbuqRay Updated Sep 2, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you think gasoline is expensive where you live, then feel sorry for the people in Bethel. All their petroleum products must be barged in, adding even more cost. Gasoline was not cheap anywhere in Alaska in Aug 07. Regular unleaded gasoline in Homer was $3.19 and in Seward was $3.20; however, it was $4.79 in Bethel!

    Hovercraft That Delivers the Mail

    There is a large hovercraft that delivers the mail to villages up the river. Seniors can ride it by appointment. Unfortunately it had mechanical problems the day I was going. Evidently this happens often.

    Boards and Not Concrete

    Many people walk in Bethel and there are few paved roads. They have boardwalks instead of concrete sidewalks.

    Upriver Boat

    by AlbuqRay Updated Aug 21, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    These traditional wooden, flat-bottomed, handmade boats come from up the river. Even the boards are handmade. It is unusual to see one these days. Notice that all the accessories are modern though.
