Q. Can a single, 50 yr old woman make a living and a life in Alaska? -Angie
A. Of course! If you can do it anywhere you can do it up here. Angie, you might want to read the previous entry I wrote to someone named Junior. It was on this subject – other than the ‘single’ part.
You can surely find a ‘life’ up here. You might even find a mate if you were so inclined. The men outnumber us by about 2 to 1. Although, there is a local saying that “in Alaska the odds are good….but the goods are odd!” That probably really isn’t fair; but it is rather funny. I guess our state does attract a lot of free thinking, don’t mess with me, mountain men type guys, after all it is The Last Frontier. Fortunately, we have a wide range of guys up here, so if ‘mountain man’ isn’t your type, Mr Right could be just around the next spruce tree! And if you are content being single, it is still a great place to live, with lots of opportunities. -BJ
