Not great when its raining and you are sleeping in a plastic bag so you don't get wet.
Were you in this?

LOL. The Ratfish Wranglers is one of the best things about Ketchikan.

If OP is an "urbanist", Ketchikan seems like an odd place to live.

Some of us enjoy reading about the lifestyle in other parts of the US without any intention of moving there.

If writing about your town is too much trouble for someone not moving, don't answer.

You're sharing, we're learning. That's not a waste of time.

You can do all of that by using Google and not wasting people's time.

I'd much rather read first-hand accounts from people who spent time there, than the dry, encyclopedia-style descriptions you often find on Google. But I guess the people have spoken . I will use Google next
