I've been planning a trip to Alaska for a couple years and hope to really do it next summer for a week. I will fly into Anchorage, rent a car, and go cruise the last American frontier. I want to see vast wilderness, huge mountains, and lots of wild critters.
BUT, I don't really want to go alone. Last time I was camping with a couple of my friends, we sat around the campfire and talked about this. One buddy said "Why not hold a contest to find a lady companion to accompany you?" Hmmmmm.
Apparently awhile back, some guy did something similar, but he was looking for a wife. He advertised over the internet and had lots of women respond, then he and his family and friends picked one out of the applicants. Now I sure wouldn't want to pick a wife that way, but I might consider it for a week long traveling partner.
Is this a crazy idea? Is it stupid? I'm not necessarily concerned about having intimate relations, just having a fun time sightseeing and enjoying the great outdoors. Aw, maybe I should completely forget it. My buddy that suggested it was about half drunk and I think he really said it as a joke. Besides, what class of woman would actually do this, probably not the kind you'd want take home to meet momma. Guess I'm just thinking out loud here...or dreaming.
