Mike and Michelle Hajdukovich

College sweethearts: Fairbanks-born-and-raised Mike Hajdukovich met his wife Michelle at UAF. Both share an unwavering love for the outdoors and operate Trax Outdoor Center in Fairbanks.

Beyond the Trax: “We just want people to get excited about the outdoors regardless of the season, and Alaska has some of the best-kept terrain secrets in the world,” said Mike.

No place like home: “Everyone is a friend or neighbor in Alaska — we all share the same love of this great state so it’s not hard to feel like a kindred community,” said Michelle.

Whether you were born and raised in Alaska or just have the Alaska born and raised spirit, we want to hear from you.
