Local Lingo

Every place I have lived has it’s own lingo!  Alaska is no different.   When we moved to Cordova we began learning the local lingo.   As I introduce colloquial terms in my blogposts I will explain them there and collect them here in a list.

Out the Road – Cordova is not connected to the road system of Alaska.  The only ways to get here is either by ferry or by plane.   Every road that leads out of town comes to an end.   If you are headed “out the road” then you are headed out of town and onto the gravel portion of the road.
