Just a quick little note. I finish my summer season at Alaska Wildland Adventures in a four days. On Saturday, I'll be going to Anchorage and I have a late flight...9:30 pm. For the price I was willing to pay I had two choices, 9:30 pm or 5 am. Everything in the middle the price almost doubled. I'll be landing in Seattle a little before 2 am.
I have about 4.5 hours layover before catching the connecting flight to Las Vegas. I'll arrive there a little before 9am. Yeah, I know, Vegas is a pretty common stop for me...but it's cheap. I have a room at the El Cortez downtown for $20/night. I'll be there 6 nights. Like usual I've looked up some different places there, but I'll more than likely just wing it.
I'm taking the bus to Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Almost two full days. There I'll be visiting some family and friends for 6 nights. Normally I spend two or three days, but I will probably not be able to make it in the spring. Then up to Green Bay. My mother is 86, so I try to get there whenever I can. Where I'll be for another 6.
Another 2 day bus ride back to the southwest. I should arrive in Phoenix on the 29th. I'll pick up some final little things before heading to the next job. Maybe see an Arizona/Chicago Cubs game on Sunday.
On October 1st, I'll catch a ride in the afternoon up to Wickenburg, Arizona. I'll be working at the Rancho de los Caballeros through Mother's Day 2013. Looking forward to golfing and riding horses this winter. I'll learn how skeet shooting is done, and maybe I'll pick up a tennis racket a couple of times too.
I am familiar with the area...for four 'winters' I worked at the Kay El Bar on the other side of town.
I have decided to make a return trip back up to Alaska Wildland Adventures next summer. Just so much to do with a short season. More fishing, more hiking, more exploring the Kenai.
