    Florida to alaska trip... What should I prepare for?

    So I was told the cost of living in Alaska is WAY cheaper than any other state. lets say I wanted to theroiticaly move their. If I pack up my backpack with clothes and stuff and I set off on a one way adventure there on my TW200 What should I get and bring with me. This is just a therotical question.

    Will the TW make it their? Should I bring a spare chain? How much money would I need to get there? what tools should I bring? If I arrive in Alaska What is the First thing a New person should do? Go to a bar or Start looking for a job? is it wise to have a friend their? Should I eat the yellow snow? Can I pet the Bear? How long should I wait between Refills before I Take off? Will my butt be sore? are there stupid people out there? is Canada Nice?

    Once I arrive in Canada: Is it true people ride polar bears to work in Canada? Is it True there WIFI runs off the northern Lights?

    Once I arrive in Alaska Is that the safest state around? there are no stupid people there? are there any garreneted Labor jobs I can aquire there?

    Are the girls hot in Alaska?


    THANK YOU!

    Also if you have to pee .... can you pee in the woods or is that a no no?

    Will the TW make it their?
    Yes




    Should I bring a spare chain?

    Just put on a quality O-ring chain first.

    How much money would I need to get there?

    None if you are a proficient thief.

    what tools should I bring?

    Just bring a micrometer, other people will think you are clever and intelligent and will gladly loan you anything else you need.

    If I arrive in Alaska What is the First thing a New person should do?

    First off, forget this "if" stuff, you are a man, an American and a TW jockey. The word is "when".

    Promptly upon arrival, find the nearest roughneck hangout and challenge the biggest, meanest, mouth-breathing neanderthal in the place to knife fight. After you win, the locals will take you in as their leader and supply you with anything you need in tribute to your awesomeness.


    Go to a bar or Start looking for a job?

    See above.

    is it wise to have a friend their?

    Friends are a weakness. As always, follow the man of mystery motto: "Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet."

    Should I eat the yellow snow?

    Calories are scarce in the wild, the darker the better.

    Can I pet the Bear?

    Bears don't care for foreplay, just get right into the action.

    How long should I wait between Refills before I Take off?

    Waiting between refills is for limp-wrists and girls. Leave NOW.

    Will my butt be sore?

    That depends on how big the bear was.

    are there stupid people out there?

    No.

    is Canada Nice?

    Canada is an Ebola infested, hell-hole. Luckily, the TW gets incredible fuel economy and you won't need to stop there.


    Once I arrive in Canada: Is it true people ride polar bears to work in Canada?

    Canadians don't work, they sponge off the US.

    Is it True there WIFI runs off the northern Lights?

    Don't be ridiculous, everybody knows that the Northern lights are caused by resonance between H.A.R.P. and the governments mind control rays.

    Once I arrive in Alaska Is that the safest state around?

    There has never been a crime in Alaska.

    there are no stupid people there?

    I answered this already, but again, no. They give an IQ test at the border and if you fail, they feed you to the bears.

    are there any garreneted Labor jobs I can aquire there?

    There are guaranteed labor jobs everywhere. Just assault a nun, police officer or federal judge and they will escort you to your new place of employment. They are easy to find and usually have corporate names consisting of the name of a city or state followed by the words "Maximum Security Prison". The give you free room and board too!

    Are the girls hot in Alaska?

    Search youtube for Monty Python's "I'm a lumberjack".

    THANK YOU!

    You're welcome.

    Also if you have to pee .... can you pee in the woods or is that a no no?

    What do you care where I pee?

    If you leave now, you might get here by the time it starts to snow, maybe. The sad truth of high latitude living is the end of july is the beginning of fall. Bring lots of money, so the folks that retrieve your mangled body left over from ill advised interface with local wild life are rewarded for their effort. True story, maybe march in anc, I was downtown @ muffler city getting some exhaust work done on my pickup. Had a bit of a wait so walked down to the PAC (performing arts center) to look at the melting ice sculpture. A guy, obvious tourist, with dangling cameras came up to me and said "I want to pet the moose". We have an urban moose population that in general mind their own business. I said "leave the moose (who was eating mountain ash berries off the trees around the skating rink) alone". So of course he goes over to pet the moose, the moose stomps the shit out of him.

    After the moose wanders off, I go over to the guy, laying broken and bloody on the ice. Unusually he was conscious, I said I thought I told you to leave the moose alone. He said " I did not believe you." I called 911, walked away (I have had many years of rescue experience) thinking just deserts. Do NOT try to pet the moose, or run into them with your japanese zoomy car. It will ruin your day.

    Trying to decide if this post is serious.
    You'd be picking a hell of a time to go north...hypothetically speaking. Alaskans are a hearty people and generally friendly as long as you're not an idiot. If you're planning on moving to Alaska with nothing but a TW and the shirt on your back you'd better have a mighty bank account. Spare chain? Id bring a spare engine. Don't pet the bears. Don't pet the moose. Hot women? Jewel is from Alaska...
    God willin' and the creek don't rise.

    X-2................. This is "NOT" the time of year one starts out for the upper most state in our union... The rockies alone will kill you even on a warm day if you're not careful .... You would need a whole lot of extra gas to make it on the Alaskan highway.OMM.

    Everything but the kitchen sink!
    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
