considering the military culture throughout Alaska, and the number of people migrating here for work during a recessed economy, you'd be mistaken. Some people literally have no choice about living here, and would like a little more to do that has nothing to do with moose droppings or bluegrass. This is why Arctic Man is so popular: people can socialize all they want, get drunk, high, etc. They can escape the mundane solitude that is constantly closing in on them. It's also why Snoop Dogg's concert sold out. How many fans of gangsta rap do you think live in Fairbanks? Yet he sold his concert out within hours of tickets going on sale. Why? Because it's simply SOMETHING TO DO.
but what do I know, I've actually lived up here for a few years.
