Alaska and Washington State
One big difference I have noticed about how Alaskans are much different that most people from the lower 48 is that Alaskans are much more mobile and know how to travel around.
It doesn't really seem to matter much about ethnicity, income, or social status. People in Alaska are always traveling around. It could as easily be frequent flights into Anchorage or Fairbanks, or Honolulu, Seattle and Cabo.

Flights down to watch a Seahawks game, or to the Muckleshoot's casino, or to Spokane and then on to to Dave Smith Motors in Kellogg Idaho are routine.

The world to most Alaskans is a much smaller place than for many lower 48 Americans who don't get very far from the farm (not slamming farmers, I like to eat too).
It's just that the perception of work and travel are much different in Alaska than elsewhere.

Good point, Waggler. I'm usually flying somewhere a few times per year.

I think the PFD and Alaska Airlines sales are big reasons why Alaskans can afford to travel more. Long nights, short days, frigid temperatures, and extra cash all encourage out of state travel.

Plus you're isolated by Canada and most from Alaska from what I gather came from somewhere else in the low 48(that where their family and roots are).

That may be in some situations but I doubt that the PFD makes a difference in what MOST people can truly afford. They can't afford it most likely but they do it anyway.

Long nights, short days and frigid temperatures are all pluses in my book. I can't think of many reasons to travel out of state unless it involves shotguns !

I'd be happy if I never had to leave the farm.

Don't move to Juneau. That's as un-alaskan of a place there is while still being in Alaska. If you like southeast AK check out some towns on Prince of Wales island or Sitka. Totally different feel to those places than the interior or even Anchorage though.
