Just for starters, no disrespect is intended for anyone, but i just can't help, but wonder....
Why so many dreamers, malcontents, misfits and otherwise habitually impractical people post here about relocating to Alaska when they scarcely seem to have a dime to their name and slim-to-no prospects of compiling the resources to actually achieve their dream. I read here the sad-sack stories of having little money and other resources where they currently reside in the lower48, but yet seem to think they're going to strike the mother lode if only they can get up north.
Is this just the modern day continuation story of those who first arrived in Alaska during the Gold Rush hoping to get rich? For these modern day pioneers, maybe, not even necessarily rich as it used to be defined, but, just, escape from life's responsibilities as modern society seems to close in around them?
I read the stories of folks wanting relocation here and can't afford to first come up and look around or can't afford to move one's belongings or can't afford a few thousand buck for a 3 month nest egg to get started up here and I can't help but scratch my head and wonder how they're going to make it up here if they haven't been able to get their sh$t together wherever they're coming from.
Is it just me out here reading some of these incredulous posts and wondering what the hell?
