You know you’re an Alaskan when… Part 2

I had so much fun with this topic I wrote two posts! Here’s the second half:

 

You know you’re an Alaskan when…

you know at least one Alaskan politician and have shaken hands with a few more.

 

you keep track of the price of oil.

 

you’ve checked on a stranger stopped on the side of the road, or helped someone after a fire.

 

you have shared earthquake or volcano stories.

 

you have shared beer or food with a complete stranger.

 

you know which roadhouses have good pie.

 

you have used first aid outdoors. (Extra points if it was with improvised tools.)

 

you are comfortable socializing with people from varied backgrounds or professions.

 

you don’t judge people by their clothing.

 

you have cursed the cold, darkness, break up, or mosquitos.

 

you wouldn’t trade your home state for any place Outside.

I love to share my passion for Alaska and its history in my writing for young adults and their grown ups.
