Cheap places to stay... winter rates are definitely cheaper here, and sometimes a place will run a weekend special, I'll keep my eye out.
The cheapest place to stay would be with me, but I won't have it really ready for visitors for another couple months I expect. It's also just a 2-room apartment, so it would be quite crowded, but there will be a king-size bed in one room at that point, and a queen futon + couch in the other, so it might be doable. (Speaking of which, any ideas for a good place to get a couch and bed? Can't spend a ton, but I'd like em to be nice, and new. I'm thinking I may have to find a place in Anchorage or online to buy em.)
