Thread Name: Favorite Town names
Subject: RE: Favorite Town names
My very first hometown, in Oregon, was Amity. In Virginia, it was Stuarts Draft.

Guest/Bill Kennedy, Robin Hopper, a musician from Chugiak, has a very popular song she calls 'I've Been Everywhere- in Alaska' She has well over 100 Alaska place names in it, including Eek, of course; she says it took her more than two years to memorize the whole thing.

Ed Schoenfeld, a local songwriter, wrote one he calls 'I've Been Everywhere- in Douglas'. Douglas is the island neighborhood of Juneau.

My favorite town name to pronounce is 'Igegik'.
