Things to Say to Alaskans to Befriend Them

I’m going on month 7 in Alaska, and I wanted to share some phrases that are surefire ways to befriend the locals:

  1. Wow, what an amazing combination of large mountains and ocean you have here

  2. These mountains are much cooler than other mountains

  3. The salmon here is so much better than other salmon

  4. I am very impressed that you are not afraid of that moose

  5. Where did you get this delicious meat? hunted it yourself with a blow dart? Incredible!

  6. Your large truck seems to have no problem navigating the three feet of un-plowed snow on the road!

  7. This early-season snow was worth every drop of rain that fell continuously all summer!

  8. Honestly this darkness is totally fine now that I’m taking 8000 IU of vitamin D per day

  9. I can’t imagine living in a place without mountains either

  10. That guy wearing the “choose violence” T-shirt did not make me feel unsettled either

Have a good Tuesday!


Disclaimer: I’ve said most of these things genuinely…well 1-8 anyway.
