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.

The first issue in May 2012 met with much enthusiasm. Thanks for the feedback. This issue includes a couple of additional sections - Video Trip Reports and Safety. You will find over time that sections will change in number and size to match the best content for the month. Keep the excellent content rolling in and you can watch AKFF Select grow. Remember, it's the quality of your content that counts.

In this issue:

AKFF Select Ipad

if you click on this with your regular browser or iphone, it will be kind of boring rehash of the magazine. If you have an ipad it might be a good way to view the content.

Still working out bugs - pm me if you have any issues.


Hey Kraley. Thats fairly cool, i like it. Nice one!

Onya Ado! I didn't catch up with this little gem of yours until today. I've been a bit quiet on the forum for awhile. Nice idea. Makes it easy to read up on the best posts for the month when you don't have much time.

I wonder what I'm going to have to do to make it into the mag now? :lol:

You could try to outdo youself, but that's probably not a good life choice. Maybe just the same excellent write-up about slightly less life threatening situations.
