Thanks for being here! The six of us at CoolWorks welcome you and wish you success in finding your Jobs in Great Places®!

I was so lucky to hop on one of our company planes and take the hour flight down to fairbanks today. I needed to get some things in town and God blessed me with a awesome day !! I checked into the go north hostel which is very nice. I rented a bike planning to ride to wal mart to get everything I needed. I stopped at the thrift store and found some hiking boots that are still in good conditon for only $10 that saves me at least $70!! I also found a nice pair of columbia light weight pants that zip off into shorts they were $15 but maybe worth $50. I stopped at a rummage and picked up a much need muquito net, some sandals , and lil speakers for my IPod. This is going to make my summer much more comfortable and I got it all less then what I would have just spent on some boots.Who doesnt love to get a great deal!! I came back to camp because a big storm was coming in , and with my good luck it past nearly a couple hundred yards around us didnt get wet at all :) Now with my shopping already done I am going to enjoy some luxeries I dont have at Coldfoot such a good pizza and beer followed by a movie. Wish your were here, its a wonderfull day in Alaska!!!!!
P.S. I know many people may be reading my blogs , please let me know how its going in you world!!!

Dominic! You are an absolute delight! Thank you for that post. It is such a reminder to take the time to relish the good things in life. So much to see and taste and feel. Your post touched on all of those senses. Delightful! Thank you.
