Lots of steel boats up here too as you might imagine. Bring a hammer. (weak gesture at keeping thread on its wobbly course )
One of my all time favourites about Alaska was an interview with a barmaid. She was asked about the reputed 12-1 ratio of men to women there and replied "Yes, the odds are good but the goods are odd".
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
