Well it is almost 1 am and I am watching the new show "gold rush: alaska". I just moved up here from Oregon and I am nothing like the people depicted in this show. I am sure it will be as great as the others but holy crap, could you pick a bigger bunch of slobs????? I am not one to judge, but if you feel the need to go out of your way to say how you are from Oregon and how great it is there, then I might need to say I lurk on this forum a lot and if someone finds out I am from there please don't hold it against me. I am the father of a 15 month old girl and I hope that I don't have to view her on some reality tv show 20 years from now. I was very excited to move here, and thought that it would be nice to not have outside influences affetcting the life I wanted to live.....Too bad for shows like this in my opinion. I think most will like it, but holy crap, way to be presented in a bad light......I love Oregon if you remove all the people, and I am glad that Alaska fits into my idea of a good place to live, hope all of you that are here feel that I fit in, but these kind of shows are making it tough...sorry if the spelling sucks but I am from Oregon...lol.
