Open Season, I mean Tourist season is upon us...

and don't get me wrong I totally appreciate all the business they give our little gift shop here in Alaska....without them my kids would go to school with no new clothes in the fall.....its just some of the random question you get asked.....like...."how many cars do you have on the island?" well I don't know that, sorry....not off the top of my head....."why don't you know how many cars you have on your island?" well sir where you are from, do you know how many cars you have in your city? "no, I don't and that is a rediculous question to ask me!" EXACTLY!!! have a nice day..... "we are in Alaska right?" yes you are....."do you take Canadian money?" nope sorry....even though you are in ALASKA we only take US currancy you know since we are apart of the United States of America!!!....."how do you get your cars on and off the island?" we have the Alaska Marine Highway ferries that we use to get from here to Ketchikan, or to Prince Rupert, BC or all the way down to Bellingham Washington if we need to....."you can't just drive?" Sir, we are on an ISLAND.....surrounded by water, there is no place to drive to!!! "oh yeah, thats right! but if you have no place to drive to, why do you have cars?" NEXT!!!!!! LOL I honestly think the Fresh Salty air does something to their braines!!! getting all the smog, and other nasty air out of their lungs, just makes them loopy I guess!!! those are just a few of the many that I have been asked.....and I am sure there will be more!!! stay tuned!!!
