A much removed family member is moving to Fairbanks in the very near future. Her new husband is in the Army and will be stationed there. This past weekend she made the comment, and was dead serious about it, that it's not safe to leave your house without some sort of firearm because of the likelihood of a bear encounter. :***:
So anyone from Alaska, do you and your entire family leave the house 'packing heat' because of the bears up there? I did laugh out loud when I heard it, but I thought I'd ask around. I've never been to Fairbanks, or even Alaska, but this seems a little far fetched to me. OK, a lot far fetched.
