if you live in haines, those three numbers are very important.

the alaska area code is 907.

the next three digits for any local haines number are 766.

this results in many occasions on which, upon asking for a phone number, or providing one, there will only be four digits exchanged.

the first time this happens is a bit confusing. but then it becomes so automatic to see and hear only four digits that i kept forgetting it was something worth writing a post over (i hope?).

it’s as if every line in town is an extension code.

the summer inn? 2970
