The last frontier

What was supposed to be 3 months in alaska turned out to be a over a year of exploring, creating, growth and life in Anchorage AK. Here are some things I have learned:

 * They don't really have lines painted on the road to show you what lane you are supposed to be in.

 * You can not see Russia from Sarah Palin's back yard. * They have some of the best coffee....and beer!

 * You need good sun glasses as well as a good sleep mask.

 * Moose are not as nice as they look..but they often times use the cross walk.

 * Santa Clause does live in North Pole, AK

 * The tide comes in with one big wave...the bore tide.

 * When at a stoplight, if the light turns green and the person in front of you doesn’t go, it is not   appropriate to honk

 * Moose is offered on a menu more frequently than chicken 

* The summers make up for the winters

 * Halibut never stops tasting amazing

 * Be prepared for anything. When people say Alaska is the Last Frontier they are not joking

 * Alaska is home to some of the nicest people I have met.

 * There is indeed a lot more men to women BUT "the odds are good but the goods are odd"

*  No matter how far away you are from home....somebody has always heard of HIBBING, MN!

The lessons are endless... might have to come back and learn some more.
