From Portland, catch the bus to Seattle, hop on a boat and head more than 2,000 miles northwest, and you will make it to Wallace Outwater’s hometown.
Wallace proudly said, “I am an Inupiaq Eskimo from Kotzebue, Alaska. That’s 28 miles above the Arctic Circle.”
As you might imagine, Wallace has stories that make Portland’s apocalyptic reaction to any snow seem quite trivial.
“Growing up in Alaska was fun. I was born in 1967, and that’s when we used to have huge, huge snow drifts. As a boy, we would make tunnels under the snow.”
