Hey Julie, This will be my first time in Alaska. I will be out of Anchorage and have to find my own housing. I will be a Gift shop clerk. I know I have some long days they told me and that it is Anchorage to Fairbanks with Denali layovers sometimes. I am driving up from Florida with possibly a stop in Yellowstone to see friends. Getting excited about going :)

Aloha Julie, thanks for friending me, I see your dream job is as the Grand Canyon. I have a couple of questions, why do you like the Canyon so much and I'm guessing your not interested in AK anymore, at least not your first choice, but I MAY be able to go to AK as I have a couple that just flew in tonight (Clist :)) and they MAY want to sign a 6 month lease, I told them they could stay for 2 nights (ie.couchsurfing.org) and see if it will work for them and me (as I would be leaving my animals in their care), anyway I had an offer in Seward as a $13.50hr. Fish processing Supervisor at Captain Jack's and an offer at Aramark Denali as a $11.50hr. cook for the dinner theater, both of which I wrote and canceled due to my last renter leaving. i may have lost both but I was hoping maybe you could give me some advice regarding the offers. I have years of experience as mostly a prep cook and zero exp. in fish processing so I actually accepted that offer in Seward and then when looking online for housing I got Really discouraged. What say you, my fellow "location independent professional". My last seasonal job was in 2000 at Deer Valley as a cook for the seafood buffet (night-time operation), I loved that job and the food and skiing that came with it, I may well go back this winter if my renters work out.
