Driving On Snow & Ice
There are only a few miles of paved roads in Dillingham, and the roads can get very icy in the winter - particularly this corner. In every town there are bad sections of road, and in every Alaskan town I've ever lived in there are always more accidents after a fresh snow. If you travel anywhere in Alaska, be cautious during and after "snow days" because more than likely someone else isn't. But not too cautiously because a clash in driving styles is the cause of many accidents. It's okay to get out of people's way, or not drive at all if you aren't feeling comfortable.

Flying Over The Tundra
Being a hub community in Alaska, Dillingham gets regularly scheduled jet service by Alaska Airlines, and smaller commuter planes such as Pen Air and Frontier out of Fairbanks. But we still end up in small planes when we want to travel beyond Dillingham to smaller communities in the region. Too many options when it comes to air taxis. Everyone around here has their favorite pilot or air taxi.
