Oh, hey, I’m actually reading that book right now! I’m near the end. Maybe by some miracle, I’ll finish it this weekend.
As always, from Friday 5.
- Alaska’s motto is “North to the future.” Where’s somewhere north you’ll be traveling some time in the future? I have no plans set to travel north, although I would like to. I want to go pretty much everywhere. It’ll happen one day.
- Alaska is the westernmost of the United States. What’s the farthest west you’ve been in your country? St. Louis, when I went to Brandon’s boot-camp graduation. Bonus answer: the farthest west I’ve been out of my country is our trip to Playa del Carmen.
- Alaska’s state flower is the forget-me-not. What’s something you really need to remember to take care of before the weekend’s up? I already paid one of my almost-due credit-card bills, so that’s not an issue anymore. I really should sign and mail my new lease, though.
- Alaska has cities named Chicken, Beaver, Pelican, Eagle, Badger, and Bear Creek. What place names near where you live are named after animals? We have a Beaver, too! And a Turtle Creek, Squirrel Hill, and Bear Run. Out near where Terra’s family camps, they have Beartown Rocks, which Paul loves.
- What’s something interesting you know about Alaska? I know here’s a lot of TV shows about people living off the land or mining gold. And this isn’t necessarily about Alaska as a place, but they have a lot of moose up there, and I know moose can actually be pretty dangerous because they’re super territorial. On some of those aforementioned shows about people living off the land, some people have expressed a greater fear of moose than they have of bears.
