Small Town Alaskan Life

We live in on an island with about 8000 other people…it’s a relatively small, isolated place. There are many unique pros and cons that I have experienced living in a little town. Lets explore some of these….

1. Nobody cares what kind of care you drive

We only have a few stores so — HELLO ONLINE SHOPPING! The only drawback is you have to wait…

The Police Blotter is R.I.D.I.C.U.L.O.U.S

After a while, you see people you know everywhere. This is wonderful – it is also horrible.

The dating pool is really um shallow…

The transition back to society can be a challenge

Nothing is open 24 hours. There is no Starbucks. Or Taco Bell. Sometimes you just want a gordita at 1:00 am and it can’t happen

People sometimes have outdated views on things

Small town politics can get interesting…and nasty. Don’t burn your bridges!
