I have to brag about my state, and our quirky sense of humor.
I love Talkeetna. I’ve spent many a summer (and a few winters!) living there. My grandpa’s ashes are spread up there. I go shooting there all the time. I won’t say what kind of hijinks I’ve gotten into up there.
Anyhow… enjoy the story. All hail Stubbs (and yes, I’ve met the Mayor, he’s a sweetheart).
I love Alaska! I went camping there for 3 weeks with my sister. 2 weeks in Denali, and 1 week going to Anchorage and Seward. It was pretty rough and we lost a lot of weight because we didn’t think about how many calories we were burning/how many we were taking in. Besides me falling in a river while rafting and almost freezing/drowning, it was a really good time! The whole thing was my sister’s crazy idea but we got through it and I’m so glad I went. I’m pretty feminine and can play the damsel in distress, but when anyone doubts me I’m like “Yo, I went camping in Alaska for 3 weeks. And I mean getting my water from a stream and not showering kind of camping”
