  • for the non-believers

    there's a price to pay for clean air, water, and no trees.

    why do we do this to ourselves? because that's the why we like it.

    sorry for the crappy quality. i think there's something wrong with the camera.

    somewhere along the line, my arms got short.

    my favorite part about the food in these pictures is that i'll probably see all the big poopies on monday when i do the building check in one of the towns lift stations.

    Are any of those prices tariff related?

      those are the real prices in one of our 2 grocery stores.

      there is also even more remote settlements than where i live. the prices only get higher from here on up, so to speak.

        Nah.....more like being 800 air miles from Churchill, Manitoba, which itself is a fair ways north.

        I would assume stuff in parts of Alaska reflects a higher price than the coninental US. But once you get places where stuff has to be flown in rather than trucked, there goes your prices.

        If you need some Cheez Whiz Vince, let me know and I'll mail you some.

        It's gotta be cheaper that way than almost $18 bucks a bottle.....

            Sam's Club built stores in Anchorage and Fairbanks which brought the prices down to normal for those who could get to them. I did notice they had hundreds of shopping carts lined up with plastic shrink wrap over them and invoices. I asked what they were for and I was told they were orders waiting for bush pilots to deliver. As I recall the last bush plane I hired cost around $5 per mile.

              Yeah, good idea, after a nuclear war, the only thing that would survive would be roaches and Cheez Whiz. That stuff is kinda nasty.

                    there's not too many of them kind around here (not that there's anything wrong with that). i think it's too cold up here, plus there isn't any trees to hide behind!

                          With the price of Coca-Cola, I can tell you that I can't move where you live. I would spend like $100-$150 a month on it.

                          What kind of industry do you have in your town that supports those prices?

                            This could still be misunderstood. I think I just got sick.

                              It ain't plumbing brother! I would start making some sort of Coca-Cola knockoff in my garage.

                              Kinda' like a meth maker.
