Quiet Places

I'm winding up my first summer as a seasonal worker, and overall it has been an excellent experience. (I worked in Denali Park Village, about eight miles south of Denali National Park.) However, this "village" isn't as quiet as I thought it would be. I was hoping for a more back-to-nature sort of experience, but instead we all heard a lot of machinery, buses, a LOT of beeping (buses, trucks, etc.), noises from the nearby highway, chainsaws, etc. In fact, a lot of the workers and guests…See More

Profile Information

Hometown:
Wheaton, MD
Where have you lived and worked?
I have worked many jobs, from landscaping to waiting tables to reporting and broadcasting for a small radio station. Aside from five years in the U.S. Navy, most of my jobs have been in the Washington, D.C. area.
About Me:
I have always wanted to travel, and I have always wanted to visit Alaska. Right now I work in an office, and it is driving me insane. I believe that, at heart, I am meant to be a waiter. I like the constant movement, and it is something that I am actually good at.
I'm joining this site mainly to find out which are the best places to work in Alaska, specifically in and around Denali.
Dream Job:
Any job where I can travel and stay in shape.
