Welcome to AKFF select.
This is a virtual magazine of some of the best AKFF content produced over the month, with contributions from a variety of AKFF members (that had no idea they were contributing). The aim of AKFF select is to promote the best content to further encourage quality contributions from AKFF members. These select threads will be captured in this monthly magazine style format for the enjoyment of members and guests for all time.
Editing has required some tough calls this month with so much great content, especially for mid winter. There were many worthy Trip Reports and other threads that missed out during the selection trials by the proverbial hundredth of a second. Well done AKFF. Keep making my life as difficult as you can.
