I'm heading off to Coldfoot, AK pretty soon (either a month or three) from now and I'm wondering how everyone else packs. I'm going to be flying up and was thinking of packing in my backpacks. I've…Continue

Are you headed to Alaska yet?? When do you leave?

Im good, but there was a lot of tornadoes today.  I am pretty sure there were over 40.  Lots of damage all over the place.  Second time this week.

So now I am going to Deadhorse for awhile, and I might be flying with you from Banks' to Deadhorse.  I cant believe I leave in less then a week.

When do you arrive in Fairbanks?  Im flying in March 8th, then up to Deadhors.  Not sure when im going back down to Coldfoot, but Im assuming sometime late April.

Yea, he asked me about going up early too, but the earliest I can make it is mid April.  he said he may call me up that early.  Honestly though I have no clue.  The only thing I know is the latest will be May 1st.  Well looks like we'll be spending the Summer together.  I can not wait to get up there.  There is so much I want to do, fishing, hiking, hopefully bouldering, and who knows what else.  Ill keep you updated on my dates.

Congrats!!!  I got a call from Brett about three days ago telling me not to worry about anything.  He said I definitely have a position, and he would call me in about a week with specific dates.  Do you have dates yet or just an offer?  I think I am heading up there late April to do some exploring in Fairbanks for a few days before I head to Coldfoot on May 1st, my talked about start date.

Heard back from Brett today.  He called to reassure me that I still have a position, and that he will be calling me in a week or so with the rest of the information involving work employment.  Have you heard anything?

I actually saw that blog a couple weeks ago, but i am happy you told me about it because I had forgotten about it.  I agree with this being more my style.  I love the thought of being able to see different parts of the country, and not having to stay at a job because I have to.  I am going to start applying to other places end of next week if I do not hear anything by then.  

Did you have more then one interview with Brett?  

At 12:28pm on January 27, 2012, David said…

By the way, I say your page says your from Houston.  I haven't been there in years but I was born there.  I really hope not to offend, but not a big fan of Texas at all.  Do you like it?

At 12:26pm on January 27, 2012, David said…

No, no word yet.  I actually sent Brett an email yesterday.  If I don't hear anything by mid next week or so I am going to call him up.  Like I said, he offered me a job, but said it will be late January/early February before I hear from him again.  He also said if I get nervous about everything because we will not be talking for awhile to email or call.  How has it been going with you?  Were you offered a job at Coldfoot, one of the other camps, or anywhere else?  I am extremely excited about working at Coldfoot.  Im not really counting down the days, mainly due to the fact that I as of now do not know specific dates, but I know I have about two and a half months left.  I hope you were offered a position, and I get to see you up there.
