Thank you for this site and this story of both sorrow and joy. My sister told me of this Wednesday as I spoke with her on the phone. Almost 58 years to the day that we lost our Father. I am a bit too emotional to speak much at this point but I and my five siblings, my Mom, and many others have missed my Dad, David Dial deeply. Thank you for keeping this site going! Thank you to the brave souls of Gustavus for their efforts in finding and saving the survivors.

I lived in Gustavus for a couple of years in the early 70's and saw the remains of a lot of the old homesteads that did not make it. Your website fills in some of the gaps of what went on back in the "old" days! Here it is 40 some years later and it makes one wonder, when were the "old" days. Keep up the good work!

I was a childhood friend of Florence Tong and found the article about the renaming of Tong Rd. interesting. I thought Florence & Larry were real pioneers moving to the AK wilderness.

I will be traveling to Gustavus this weekend to do the Gustavus Community Health Fair. Whenever I travel throughout Alaska, I always like to read about the history of the community and how each one came to be. What endearing stories you have here; I am all the more excited to visit!

Visited site on August 28, 2011. Lived in Spenard, AK in 1952-53 as a boy. Having been in the USAF, Colorado Air National Guard and Texas Air National Guard, the site was very moving to me. Must applaud the citizens of Gustavus for their efforts in locating the survivors. Worked crash sites myself many hours or days after occurance and wonder if more lives could have been saved if someone had arrived sooner.
