I'm trying to think of a name that would indicate gut flowing over the belt line and potgut doesn't quite do his/her the proper character justice. Instead of manmountain maybe something that indicates a glacier flowing over the beltline. Come on now people someone come up with the absolute proper name.

What a bizarre way to try and get your point across to other people...spew foul language on a public forum . MM sounds like a kid pretending to be a well-traveled grown up.

To whoever sent me the rep point with the message stating to send the messages to a mod and get manmoron banned: it doesn't work that way on the Alaska forum.

I'm not positive, but I thing his "MO" has been banned a few other places as well, strange that when I call him out about his posts he doesn't respond. Maybe they are to close to home... Wherever that is, it certainly hasn't been Alaska.

He reminds me of some guy that wears buckskins and a coonskin hat to look the part of being a real wilderness Mountain Man with all the garb having "Made in China" tags all over it. All dressed up to walk arond a big lower 48 town trying to impress anyone that isn't laughing at him and how goofy his thought process is.

If I took him out to where I go in the Bush, he would simple freak out and the noises he would hear in the woods. Amazing how scary a squirrel is running through the distant leaves, or when a Spruce Chicken flies up by your feet sounding like a charging "Big thing"!

It's just unfortunate that he has no real life adventures of his own to share, and that must make for a pretty sad and lonely life.

Don't really need to come up with a discriptive name for him, the one he is using now pretty much fits now, he clearly wants to be someplace else that he can only dream about.

So let him rant, it just lets him live out a fantasy he clearly can't grasp, but let's him think he is.

Why do you keep feeding his fire? I think he gets off with everyone's comments.

I know several people who live in North Pole. Many of them are late 20's early 30's. None of them like living in North Pole and always complain how far it is from everything.

Let's not start making Fairbanks and North Pole sound like the Bee's Knees. Also, $400 a month rent will get a you pretty craptacular place to call home.

MM...My manguy just has been called about 3 times in the past 2 weeks for a job on the slope after over 4 years of being there, 3 on, 3 off. When we crunched the numbers it would cost over $600 a month in travel costs probably plus a motel with weather conditions on the way up from AZ especially in the winter going through Seattle or MPLS....that would be taking over $7200 "ducks" as you say in a year out of what he makes now...guess what...recalculate your advise. Unless you don't have a job elsewhere that pays close, and you said you worked in the oil fields right? or live within traveling of Anchorage or Fairbanks to get on a company plane, you might think twice, so I guess Met, Starlite, and everyone else has you pegged right...doubt you have ever done or ever will do Alaska...

Yeah...13 miles is sooooo far away . "Far away" is precisely why I like it.

Granny R ; Im trying to learn proper english writing . I fall short, But Ill try my best to respond to your accusation that I have never done or ever will do Alaska work .

This is tough for me . I did send you a pm explaining a few things.

For someone with a "Manguy" I think you started off on wrong foot right there. Is this your husband?

First off . If a women ever depended on me for a lifestyle , she'd be SOL.

Ever thought of being a Womengirl?
Anyone with half a brain knows you cant make it in Alaska flying back and forth to Arizona! Dumb move Girly.

Everyone is a victim, no one is to blame for their own actions because there is always someone else, some thing else, some other mitigating circumstance which has caused the person in question to do whatever it is that they have done wrong.

If your in your 50's stay home and die...

We, as a society, have wrongly been made to feel guilty for pointing out other people’s mistakes and correcting people when they are wrong.

We have been made to feel guilty when we don’t take these mitigating circumstances, no matter how ridiculous or flimsy they are.

Again dumdumbs--- Fly to Fairbanks -- one way-- walk to the College hostel , get on craigslist and buy a mazda for 1300$, insure it for 30$ and register for 50 more. Then go to every heavy construction company between, Fairbanks and N Pole and ask for a job.

Next spring about April tell your parents Im being an adult and am gonna make something of my life --- I love you bye.
