For some bizarre reason, I feel the need to visit Barrow, Alaska for a week. The farthest north city in USA.

When I was in high school I flew to the top of Alaska (Barrow) to play basketball. It is like a foreign country up there. You have to walk very slowly in the winter so your lungs don't freeze. The bus drivers have much more important jobs up there,  they have to ensure the kids don't freeze to death, get blown away by the insane arctic wind or get eaten by a polar bear before they reach their houses. Crazy.
