As a previous visitor to Dutch Harbor, this is pretty interesting. A brisk Aleutian breeze can easily reach 80 mph and has been recorded over 100 mph on numerous occasions. Also on the island is one of the most dangerous bars in America, as per an article that I believe was written by Playboy. And yes the bar really is very rough, I do not remember its name. Dutch Harbor is a very small island full of transient workers who only visit to take part in the seasonal fishing. When not on the boats there really is nothing to do on the island. I am not making this up, nothing to do. All of the fishermen and fisherwomen drink and drink heavily, because that is the only way to forget that you are on an island in the middle of nowhere and that your boat is probably a better place to be than the island. That was the only place that I have ever been when I wanted to stay on my vessel more than I wanted to visit the town. I remember going to the supply store and watching a boat crew chief buy a pallet of cigarettes to go with his pallet of food. Read that again, he bought a pallet of ciagarettes. I saw him wheel it out of the store. That is some hard core stuff. I know the boats can go out for over a month at a time, but with only a few people on board that many cigs could only be spread around so far. Dutch was a great place to visit and see all of the cool WWII stuff around. The Bald Eagles were everywhere and I am glad that I got to visit, but I would never want to live there. It is way to isolated for me and I am a country boy who loves not seeing his neighbors.
