My Visit to Cicely, Alaska
For those of you that are unfamiliar the television show, Northern Exposure, this probably sounds tres bizarre. For those of you who *do* know what I'm talking about...IT WAS SO COOL! Ha!
I had to go up the mountains for a showroom reset in a nearby town and convinced my coworker to detour over to Roslyn, where Northern Exposure was filmed so I could play tourist for fifteen minutes..."PLEASE!" He was convinced I would be dissapointed because I had worked the place up to be an idyllic, western frontier haven of sorts, but I assure you...I was not at all let down by the sights, sounds, and smells of the rustic hamlet. I even had a delightful conversation with a shop owner about the real estate revolution of Lake Washington (where I live) in which I learned that he bought a house down the road from me in the 1970's for...get this...$35,000!!! I scolded him for not keeping it until 2005 and selling it at the height of the market for millions. He subsequently scolded him self. Charm, I tell ya!
