Juneau You Want To
According to locals, there’s no multitasking in Elfin Cove. When you’re spending one day fishing and another exploring one of the most famed grizzly sanctuaries in the world, you won’t want to be anywhere but the present. Thanks to Mike Craford and Alaska Airlines, you and three friends will enjoy two nights at the Elfin Cove Resort. Transportation is tricky in this remote part of the country, so this package includes round-trip Alaska Airline tickets between Portland and Juneau and float plane rides by Alaska Seaplanes while you’re there. You can take advantage of this deal anytime between May 15–June 30 or August 26–September 10.

Fire At Will
This package is guaranteed to make you the envy of your friends this summer. Bridge City Steel’s President Jay Poizer made us a custom fire pit, complete with TFT logo, and we’d love to see it in your backyard. And because you can’t just put any chair around this thing, we’re throwing in two wooden benches as well. The only catch with this is that you might get a call from TFT President Joe Whitworth looking for a s’more. Good thing the fixings for those are also included.

Feel free to kick back, since your admission covers accommodations there that evening and breakfast the next morning.
