Thread: AlaskaHippie is Famous!

    Default AlaskaHippie is Famous!

    AlaskaHippie is famous now....quoted in the Alaska Dispatch article Fish fight: Troopers 'throw book' at Realtor over questionable Alaska residency.

    "A brief exchange from a popular outdoor forum is indicative of the heated feelings on this topic: when one commenter notes that Alaskans really "hate" non-resident fishermen, a purported local responds that vitriol stems from, among other things, summertime RV traffic.

    "Many of us have seen stacks and stacks of boxes at the airport, or the rows of RV's that stay for the max limit of 2 weeks in campgrounds (before moving 15 miles down the road and repeating the pattern), complete with smokers, vacuum packers and chest freezers, etc," wrote a commenter named AlaskaHippie. "We've heard folks like this brag about visiting Alaska 'on the cheap' and then scurrying South with hundreds of pounds of processed fish to give away to friends or family or, in some cases, SELL for profit.""

    And a good reminder that we anything post on the AOD forum can be used elsewhere without our knowledge or approval, since it's a public forum.

    I could care a less (given the author-who has been popped for going over limit himself) about THAT part...."Purported" local?

    Heck coming from Craig "Hillside" Meathead......This guy has as much bush cred as greythorn (sorry grey).....

    (P.S. where is the wrist slap? I thought AOD owned proprietary rights to anything posted here? Let's see that infraction!! <grin>)
