if you're an outdoorsman you'd love pretty much anywhere in the state, except for maybe anchorage. i'm not, and i've been stuck in fairbanks for 4 years, so I'm excited about the growing possibility that i can leave in may
For the past three days we've been looking into buying a 4-season travel trailer...one we can pull up to Alaska to help us in getting situated with a temporary place to reside, and for use when going camping thereafter...
Location: a secret lab on the shores of lake titicaca
i lived in VALDEZ and MULDOON.
i was a D.J.
after living in colorado i thought i was kinda a woodsy type guy.
there are animals that might just EAT you.
it's a strange feeling going for a walk in the woods.
colorado has been tamed.
i didnt carry a handgun.
i carried a shotgun.

We deal with the potentiality of encountering a bear where we camp/hike/fish...and, for us to counter that possible threat we carry along a large revolver and lever gun, in hopes it will help level the playing field and set things more in our favor.
Oh, that's part of the challenge that intrigues me...
...I've worked in Scandinavia during the extreme cold of winter, spent six years in Minot, ND (where freezin' is the reason), and ventured out into the very cold conditions found in central Idaho...in the Stanley basin (one of the coldest places in the lower 48, or lower some number for Obama)...and many a weekend on the ski mountains.
I've fully outfitted my wife and I with extreme cold arctic gear, and we look like Michelin people when everything is dawned, and we are anxiously anticipating what lies ahead...
...the cross country skiing, snow shoeing, ice caving, igloo building on winter camps, etc.
Easy, you're going to cause me to consider an earlier departure...
