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

Once the bags are packed, a lot of decisions have already been made. The night before, you had to think through what to pack and what to leave behind. The morning of departure, you check again and again for the essentials: passport, wallet, journal, tickets, camera.

Your itinerary, chosen from among countless options, is at least partially settled by now. You’re going to _____, and as far as you’re concerned, all of _____ is waiting for you.

The road ahead may not be easy, but you have already overcome one big challenge as you carry those bags out the door.

Next stop, the airport or Greyhound Bus station. You take the city bus or the cab or the ride from your friend. One way or another, you will soon be deposited in front of the revolving doors that lead to the seasonal job world.

But first, you look around at the home you’re leaving behind one last time. When you return from the trip, what will have changed here? What will have changed with you?


And probably the biggest question on everyone's long will it take Aggie to realize that he over-packed?

ok Ann, Bill, Bren, Patty...Seeing as I ain't gonna make it to AK this Summer, I expect LOTS of pictures from all of u.

I have delayed my season in AK, but I would not of missed a Summer with my son for all the money & perks & benefits in the world.


Now for most of you, the new 2011 season will start in about a month. My season starts in  about 7 hours which is when I meet my son at the Greyhound bus station. I can still remember my first Summer here when I tried to see everything all in 1 day...everyday, and can't wait to show him all my favorite spots in this park.

Enjoy your summer Sunni with your son. I'd do that in a heartbeat, over getting up to Alaska. Best wishes.
