Alaska thread. Is there actually anyone else from the anchorage area on here? If so, we should meet up somewhere and do the Alaskan thing and get trashed.
It is more expensive, especially rent in Anchorage. Paying $1400 for a two bedroom apartment right now. Gas isn't horribly bad anymore, $2.15 a gallon right now.
Most jobs pay more than their lower 48 equivalent, even your shitty gas station job is $11/hr. Drugs aren't too major of an issue, but the hobos have recently gotten into spice. We have a ton of homeless drunk natives here. And yeah, there's been a moose patrol since the state was founded and their horses died of the winter cold.
Nevermind I just looked it up. Moose Patrol my ass anon thanks for lying to us. Shit sounded cool as fuck
It's a real thing. The confusion comes from the fact that we started using the Alaska native word for moose, that sounds a lot like horse. Eventually we started calling all moose horse and call horse equine. It's why when Sarah Palin (who we all hate) rode a moose as a campaign stunt it didn't get in the news, because the reporter was using the Alaskan word and it didn't make any sense why didn't a horse would make a good campaign stunt.
