Thudpucker is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Talking 30 Years in AK.

I went to AK in 72 in my 73 F250 and left AK 30 Years later driving an 88 F250/7.3l Diesel pulling a 29' 5er.
During that time I had four F150/300 six and two Bronco's with the same engine. All stick shifts too. I never found an Auto for those old guys.

I lived in Peters Creek most of those years.
I had a nice house on East 4th Ave in Anchorage and an apartment way out East Northern lights (Earth quake flats) or Shaker town.

The Company put me the last three + years in Ketchikan.
I Managed to sell all of it

I worked all over the state, flying mostly, and loved it.
Only my bad Heart forced me to come outside to live in Alabama.

Fishing, Clamming, Hunting, Camping, Gold panning, Building Cabins, River Rafting, and generally doing all the Nutty things any Alaskan kid would do.
Take your relatives up to see a Bear.
I learned to fly up there. Flying around those mountains is where you learn Caution. But we found good places to "Pick n' Pan" that way.

Now I believe Idaho/Montana are the closest to the Alaskan experiences we could get. From the Flat States anyway.

I may get back some day, to my Family in Wasilla. But they don't want any Cripples to watch out for.

You guys git on enjoying all you can. Post pictures of somethings you do.

sorry to hear you're no longer in the last frontier. my employer told me it was time to go in 2012. i can't wait to go back. i'm looking for work somewhere in the southeast part of the state. i'd like to turn wrenches for a helicopter company seein' as how thats what i've specialized in over the past ten years or so…
hope all is well in alabama. maybe we'll cross paths when we get back there.
by the way, i have plenty of AK pictures, but i don't think they should be posted on this particular forum. let me know if you wanna see what i saw.

cheers!
