Opps, don't we all hate it when we come up with someone with facts!

Speaking of Alaska,
I heard that due to the surplus level of men to women there that quite a few
unattached young (and maybe not so young) would go up there to find their
Quite often they would come back to the lower 48 and answer the questions,
of "Hey were'nt the odds good of finding a man?"
To which they would reply, "Yes, the odds were good,  but the Goods were
Any truth to this?

Yep, We got our share of "Odd Goods" around the neighborhood. One Eyed
Bob is single and lives with his dog. Wayne-Oh also lives alone and has
for many years. He would make a nice catch should any woman come by who
could actually live out here.  Women-Folk that can live out here are FEW
and very far between. Most city women can't make it, this far out.  They
have to have Flush Toilets, lots of Hot Water, and other women-folk, to
socialize with, and there just aren't many around.  Davie's Woman can do
it, but she has a child by a previous marriage and needs to be in town
for the kid. Adam's fiancee, is a REAL Alaska Woman, born and breed in
the bush, and really doesn't like cities. Towns, however, are a nice
place to visit, but she wouldn't want to LIVE there. I suspect they will
visit the Preacher, before next winter. Adam's Mom, Aunts, and both
Grandma's were ALL Good Bush Women, though in later life they all moved
back to town for medical reasons. When the nearest Doctor is 2 Hours
away, even if the plane left town as soon as you got in trouble, medical
is one of the many things that you do for yourself. 911 doesn't mean
much out here. We take care of our own, FIRST, then get the Outside
working after. Montie's wife comes from an Oldtime Alaska family. She
does very well out here, and likes this living much better than town
life. I suspect 2 of her three girls will be bush  Ladies when they grow
up, but the oldest is going to head to the "Bright Lights" as soon as
she turns 18, for sure. My wife is a Nurse, and has lived here, off and
on for 35 years. Her career as a Traveling Nurse takes here to towns and
cities all over the country, on 3 month contracts, for HUGH Bucks. she
likes to be gone thru the darkest of winter, but also wouldn't miss
fall, and spring, as they are the BEST times in the bush. this winter
she took a job as a Elementary School Nurse in Town, but she flies out
for weekends at least a couple times a month, Weather Permitting. We
video conference every evening, to keep in touch.

Your descriptions of your neighbors momentarily inspired me to write
about a few of my own. But then I realized that they're such a
collection of characters that most readers would think I'd made up the
stories! Instead I'll mention just one. Recently Bill had complained
that the cost of living in Arizona is out of control, and that there's
too much civilization creeping toward his CCTV-camera festooned
bunker. He also believed that city folks who say that excess drinking
is bad, are just plain stupid, since he was a undeniable example of a
long-lived heavy drinker. He pined to be somewhere where he'd fit in
better, so his latest plan was to move to Alaska. For some strange
reason he believed that his social security check would go farther
there. Hold on though lady readers... as good a catch as Bill might
appear, a couple weeks ago he was returning from a little party at a
friend's place, and managed to flip his motorcycle/side car on top of
himself after hitting an imbedded rock on a dirt trail. He was
discovered less than a day later, alas, about 15 hours too late. RIP
Bill, I always enjoyed our chats.
