I moved to AK from CO back in April. In June I had to leave and come to Iraq, where I am now. If the ratio of male to female doesn't work for you in Alaska, you would not believe how it works in your favor over here.
I'm looking forward to coming back to my new home.
God Bless America.

There are places like that yes! Chop-haul-burn firewood and what not. I actually have running water, electricity and natural gas. My area used to be pretty rural, but has grown alot over the last 30-40 years. I now live a mile off the main highway...but 10 miles from town. It's just about perfect.
When I first built this place in the early 80's, I burned wood for heat and cooked on the woodstove, I had oil lamps for light, and splurged and had a small honda generator so I could run my toaster and TV! No utility bills was great. Cutting and hauling wood got old.

Many of these forums can get really mundane and lifeless. Someone has to take the initiative to add some humor. I try to be that someone. It seems to keep folks coming back for more. Less politics...more "good" humor! I'm not trying to take anything away from the forum...just trying to add to it. I frequent 4-5 different forums in a day, all very different in nature. And they all can use a chuckle on occasion. If I can put a smile on just one person in a day...my life is worth living!

Generally "bush" refers to any community off the road system. The level of "rustic-ness" can vary widely, but it essentially means you live in a town/village that is pretty well "cut off" from the outside world and the only way to get in and out is boat or plane. Of course there are some "roadside" communities that are very "bush" in nature and some "bush" communities that are pretty modern, but that's the jist of it.

As far as "connecting" with a man in the bush, you really don't have to put forth much effort at all other than being female and existing, lol. In my time there we would sometimes go hang out at the local watering hole after work. Some of those poor guys were SO starved for female attention that all they wanted to do was talk to you or dance with you and they didn't "expect" anything more. (Not that they wouldn't have minded, I'm sure, lol) but they were really very respectful and sweet, so appreciatvie that you took the time to give them a little company.

It really was such a neat experience....I often felt like a queen Even though I was surrounded by a bunch of burly guys who haven't been with women for who knows how long, I really felt very safe...like I was something precious to be "protected" or "admired" something. I know that probably sounds kind of stupid, but that's the feeling I got...like if someone DID try to do something inappropriate to me, I'd have a dozen overprotective "brothers" there in an instant to take care of the problem
