Post honeymoon Ben and I drove up one Saturday afternoon with good friends Sarah and Ashley Brown and kiddos to the Talkeetna Moose Dropping Festival. The experience was true to Alaska . . . very red neck. It's like a mini Alaskan state fair with a "moose dropping." For those who haven't been people can buy lackered moose droppings (something like $2-$5 a piece) with a number on it. They are given a copy to keep with each one they buy. Later in the day someone flys a plane up over an open field there with a large target on the ground and literally drops thousands of moose terds from above. There are cash prizes for closest to the target, farthest, etc. Alaskan, that's all I can say about it. :)
