I really want to make the stop in Juneau... that'll be lovely, and novel (as oppose to use Anchorage Intl. again)

My concern is that it may be a rather short runway and may give us some issues on landing and taking off comfortably.

Let me know your opinions guys! :D

If we gave everybody in the World free software today, but we failed to teach them about the four freedoms, five years from now, would they still have it? Probably not, because if they don’t recognise their freedoms, they’ll let their freedoms fall

Who in their right minds decides that flying from a tropical paradise to a dangerous, snow storm lashed Alaskan City's airport surrounded by steep mountains is a good vacation decision?

Well, other than the possibility of Coconut Crabs, endemic to the Marianas, that are rarely known to drop coconuts down upon the unwary pedestrian's heads, I suppose being conked on the head with a coconut is better than having a 60#+ terrestrial crustacean do a drop bear routine on your sorry ass, as these large creatures are known to perform because it gets them out of the coconut palms fast.

Either way you're gonna need a lime and coconut in the morning.

Better to stay in the Mariana's and enjoy the weather while exercising a prudent amount of caution about Coconut Crabs, you could always boil one up and have a neighborhood crab feed and reduce the danger these critters represent.

After driving for 14 hours in RL, got just in time for the landing :)
Though the weather wasn't really nice, but still made it interesting

you landed quite well SHM!
I was shaking (fearful) on my approach cause I couldn't see a damn nothing until I broke an insidious cloud ceiling 500ft. And many other USA tourists had a time of their lives bringing their aircraft to safety on the gate, with up to 3 go-arounds.

I predict Portland is going to be a much user friendly experience today, and we'll just follow charted Departure from Juneau, which I think will be easier than that of attempt landing big jets there.

See you guys soon for the continuation of the Longest USA Tour Leg.
