     as You see us:  individuals who are worthy of love and

         entry than access and entry upon the land of the owner; the                                
         lessee has the burden of demonstrating compliance with this

              with a requirement of AS 38.05.130, the provision of this

              damages required by AS 38.05.130 or this subparagraph,                                
              as appropriate, the parties shall make provision for                                  
              payment of reasonable compensation to the owner for any                               
              loss by the owner of the owner's use and enjoyment of the
