Hilarious things that you will only see in Alaska

Updated on January 26, 2012

Be prepared for some rather unusual sights

Alaska is undisputedly the last frontier with some rather wacky sights and funny characters. Whether we like her or not, Sarah Palin is one fine example. You have to experience the amazing 49th State of the USA yourself to understand what I am talking about. But if you can't make it up there in person and want to know what life up in the Big White North might look like, here are some funny pictures that we took during one of our unforgettable Alaskan vacations:

Alaskan RV

Who says you can't have your log cabin on wheels? This cozy RV perfectly blends in with nature so that the Russians can't spot it from the other side.

Alaskan garage

Who says you need fancy tools and expensive lifts to fix a car? Not up in Alaska. People up here are ingenious and a little goes a long way. The great thing is, when Sarah moves into the White House she can bring her own mechanic.

Alaskan deck

Who says you can't recycle old truck trailers? What a novel idea for an instant deck which can even be towed by your wooden RV and serviced by your friendly neighbourhood mechanic.

Alaskan restaurant

Who says advertising is everything? This is probably the watering hole where "Mother Grizzly" hangs out with her hunting buddies.

Alaskan motel

Who says first impressions count? Obviously not in Alaska. If you don't have a log cabin on wheels, this may be your second best choice.

Alaskan outhouse

Who says from this crapper you can't see all the way to Russia? Of course, this is unless a dummie with his truck blocks your view.

Alaskan fishing

Who says you can't fish without a rod? This is the way salmon gets caught on the famous Copper River. When Sarah tells you that she likes fishing, she probably doesn't refer to this type though.

Alaskan church

Who says you have to dress up for church? Definitely not for this one. The only thing required by law is a helmet.

Alaskan names

Who says a place can't be named after a bird? Chicken has a population of 7 (not including the dog in the picture).

And now do you believe Sarah Palin that she can see Russia from her house? Well, I would say: "Never believe a politician, but anything is possible, up there, isn't it".
