Lower 49 Meet Wasilla Alaska

A Photo Safari of Wasilla, Alaska - Home of Sarah Palin.

In the last couple of days many have found a blogger from Alaska that does a bang up job writing about his state and it's politics, he was thrown into the politics of the Presidential Campaign much like Senator John McCain threw out his running mate Sarah Palin, I can only guess, but I doubt his site and writings were seen by many outside of Alaska, they are now.

Yesterday, on a trip back home, he and his wife shot some photo's of Wasilla Alaska, where Sarah Palin is from and was mayor of for a few years.

Under the above photo, which he leads his most recent post off with, he writes this: Time for a caption contest! Anyone?.

Very apt, don't ya think.

He's got a number of photo's in this post, take a trip over for a visit, and as mentioned in the comments the photo's might remind many of a certain town from a TV show that frankly is one I miss.

If you haven't visited his site in the last few days, since the announcement of Palin as the Republican VP candidate, read through his recent posts to get a better feel his take on Alaska and the Politics within.

He has a list of other Alaskan Bloggers that are worth a visit, whether or not Palin is still around in a couple of days, giving the ability for us below to find out much more about Alaska, even with the recent Corruption Investigations, and other reports, most of us have little knowledge of.

*Alaskan Abroad

*Begich Blog

*Celtic Diva’s Blue Oasis

*I Eat Gravel

*Progressive Alaska Blog

*The Immoral Minority

*Zaki Blog

And as would be expected each of the above have links to other Alaskan Bloggers and sites.

We've all absorbed an awful lot of breaking news about the Vice Presidential pick, one time mayor now first term governor of Alaska, it's high time we got to know the people and state better, again whether she's still around in a few days or not. With all the also breaking news, recently, about the alleged political corruption, though that seems to be all over this country, they could use the help of us in the lower 49 in bringing honest leadership and direction to their state.

I almost moved there years ago, when the oil was discovered and the construction started on the original pipeline. Don't remember why I didn't except possibly being very busy at the time in central New York construction and traveling to other states building stores in a relatively new concept of enclosed malls. Always wish I had, it's a beautiful state, as this blogger seems to have found out after he moved there many years back.

Hope he doesn't mind my sharing his photo, and link to the others. Normally wouldn't do so but after these last couple of days I feel these and his post should be shared and visited.

What New News Will Break Today??

No votes yet


Thanks for this Jim. Looks as if being Mayor of Wasilla is equivalent to being First Selectman in my town!

The current guy here has 6 years experience, guess he'd make a great V.P. candidate!

That was my very first thought. My second thought was our selectmen were volunteer. Maybe she should consider offering a cut in pay if elected. What with budget problems doncha know.


I always wanted to take a trip to Alaska.


Grab the pic before rba got it, don't worry there's a slew there, like the $500 Frisbee ;c]

I've been visiting his and the other sites for the last couple of days, he's got a great way of posting up about the politics and state.

I like the feature of putting your cursor on the link and the window box that comes up of the site. I don't know what this is called but it's neat...wonder if it is free? Would make a nice addition here on ePM for instant access via links.

For awhile, and it was free, can't remember what it is from, but still get e's every now and than. I took it down, it seemed to be irritating, at least to me, and it was interfering with something, can't remember what, I think it was something with trying to copy something.

If I remember where to get it I'll post it up.
