A Day in the Life at Alaska Wildland Adventures

This summer I'm in Cooper Landing, Alaska.  I work as the Lead Breakfast Cook for Alaska Wildland Adventures (AWA).  My day starts at 1:40 am, it's now starting to get darker in the middle of the night so I need a flashlight in my tent cabin.  They are similar to the tent cabins that I have seen pictures of in Yosemite employee housing.  Outside, it's not astronomical twilight yet, so I can see clearly enough to get to the bathhouse first to clean up a bit before heading to the main lodge…

From AZ-AK and back

This has been a rather strange Summer for me. I got to experience AK up-close & personal, which is always better then doing it from TV or magazines. I sorta had 2 part-time jobs while I was there. First I worked at Wendy's, which was within walking distance from the hostel I was staying in. I quit that job when the Winter community ended at the hostel and everyone had to move make room for the Summer visitors, that only stay a few days at a time.

I went to Cooper Landing…
