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People sometimes have outdated views on things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!

Hooray for short commutes! Mine is three minutessmalltown8

I suppose there are pros and cons to no matter where you go

  1. You forgot to mention that everyone wears the same shoes. If you do not have said pair of shoes you are not really a Sitkan.
