The Worst Part of Alaska

There are many wonderful things about Alaska.  It's incredibly pretty everywhere.  There is tons of stuff to do, if you like the outdoors. But there are some downsides to the last frontier.  Stuff is much more expensive up here, it's far away from everything else.  But the worst thing....

We brought our bikes up here which has been a good thing.  We go on rides from time to time.  Here we are going on one.  We left about 8:30 pm.
Good thing babies don't mess up equilibrium.
We traded who had the camera somewhere along the ride.  I think this is near the end of the ride, a little after 9 PM

This is my cute wife that same day after we went out and did an install just relaxing before bed, around 11:30.

Noticing a pattern? IT NEVER GETS DARK! I knew this about Alaska, and I think most people are familiar with this fact about this large track of land, but dang it's hard to get used to once you actually start to experience it.

It never gets dark?! Does that mean no pie?

The worst part of Alaska is that it is so far from TN!

So does this go on all 24 hours?! I would definitely invest in some eye coverings or black out curtains. haha Carl would be miserable there! Every night he goes around turning off all the little electronics that put off charge/on lights even though he sleeps like a rock!

No it doesn't go on for 24 hours but it never gets truly dark here...the darkest hour looks like dusk. So funny that Carl is like that because my dad is the exact same! We always said that he couldn't sleep soundly in anything other than a bat cave...he likes it reaaal dark.
