Outside (Alaska) - Wikipedia

In the U.S. state of Alaska, Outside refers to any non-Alaska location. Though commonly used by Alaskans to refer to other U.S. states, it may also refer to international locations including Canada and Russia.[citation needed ] The term has been in use since at least the beginning of the 20th century and is believed to be an adaptation of a similar Canadian term used in the northern portion of that country and referring to southern Canada.
