LOL sorry for the title its the hook. The wife and I have been seeing a lot of TV shows about Alaska lately. The one common them among all of them, is that you will DIE if you come here! However the people they focus on seam, at least to us to be very stupid! It may just be the way the show portrays them, but if DEATH is constantly sneaking up behind them, from the thousands of perceived threats, would it not at least make since to some of you, that they exercise some more common sense? They just make it seam so difficult, I'm not saying its easy at all but I believe the wife is becoming fear full of Alaska. This concerns me as her little brother is currently living there and she seams hell bent on giving him bear advice gleaned from TV over the phone.
