Introduce Ourselves!

I haven't been frequenting the forums all too often lately so I don't really know what members are from AK... so I thought it would be neat if we could post up our first names at least, where we're from and a little bit about ourselves.

I'm Ray, from St. Paul Island (Pribliofs... west of Anchorage, north of Dutch Harbor) I commercial fish for halibut during the summers and I like playing basketball, working on trucks and installing stereo equipment.

Hi Ray, Mike from Valdez. FF/Medic with our city's FD. Try to spend what free time I have enjoying the outdoors and exploring some of the gold/ghost towns in my neck of the woods.

PS Have you received the chapter information, logo ect yet? If not let me know and I will point you in the right direction.

Well let me get in on this too!

I'm Wes from Fairbanks and I am a professional firefighter by trade. I too pay others to work on my truck (a man's gotta know his limitations - mine is mechanical!) but I do like to "dress up" my Excursion!

This was a good idea Ray, thanks for bringing this thread up!

Now let's hear from the rest of you!

I am a marine veteran also. 34 years old. got a girlfriend that im living with that doesnt care for vehicles much. guess that is where i get my ambition. hehehe naw i was like this before i meet her, then i only had 3 vehicles. at least i am working on my obsession, i did at one time have 9 vehicles. when i lived in arizona. by the way i was raised in alaska and minnesota. i am also a graphic designer. but due to low wages i went back to my hobby for income, mechanic. well thats about it for now. if you need to know more i will tell you.

Looking for friends back in anchorage

We live on the Nabesna Road and have a B & B that we run in the summer time. This winter we are in Homer helping out with my 90+ year old father-in-law. I'm living the Alaska dream.... I have three things that work... First my pickup (97PSD), second my fishing pole and lastly my wife... then she quit her job, well two out of three isn't so bad....

I looked for it on the credit union site but I didn't see it, can you maybe post a link to it. I would really like to get it, I have a trailer to haul it on. Can you maybe give me a call tomorrow and we can talk??? My work number is 907-283-2884 ask for Jim. If I am not there just leave a message and I will call you back, if that works for you.
Thanks again Jim

Welcome all to the coolest chapter on FTE.

My Name is Tony and I am from Fairbanks. I work for a development company called Fountainhead Development. I am responsible for all of the telephone and computer systems in our many properties, including 4 hotels here in Fairbanks. So if anyone needs a place to stay let me know and I can hook you up with a good rate and a great place to stay.

I snowmachine in the winter and camp and fish in the summer. I currently own a 2003 F350 V10 Lariet cc to pull my 32' monster fifth wheel trailer. Pulls the snowmachine trailer very nicely also.

Glad to see a chapter for people in alaska that have so much in common.

Tony

Hi guys and gals. My name is Howard. Been living in Homer for about 15 years and don't plan to leave. I fly helicopters for a living and my wife owns an art gallery in town. I'm glad to see an Alaska chapter finally started. Was beginning to wonder if I was the only one! I found FTE when I was having problems with my Ranger, and was impressed with the answers and help.

Hey I'm Jason I live in Anchorage off of 84th and Lake Otis (not Far from Greythorn3) I have Oil in my blood (due to a early childhood mistake)
Drag racing is my life, my passon, and my calling. I'm in the process of rebuilding a 59 F100 Styleside Custom Cab with a 390 and a C6 as well as a 1976 Pinto Wagon Pro Mod (yes I said Pinto Wagon ) that, if I beat 6.47 seconds in the quarter mile, will be the fastest Pinto in history. when I'm not obcessing over that I am doting on my wife of six months and performing crew chief duties on my dads 71 Pinto coupe (yes another Pinto!). While working I am a personal care provider for an amazing 15 year old. Thats about it I guess. I'm glad to finally be part of a chapter that has people that can actually relate to the grandure that is Alaska!
