Hey Dominic, you should get to Seattle and ride up with me! I'm leaving around mid-April, I really wanna take my time and see the sights too! Are you into camping, hiking?

So did Brett tell you if there was positions open at Yukon Camp by chance?

YEAH!!!! Should be fun. I have been in touch with farms in Northern Alaska to learn about seed types, maturity dates, and planting dates! I also emailed coldfoot and asked if it would be a problem to put a garden in.

HI Dominic! I've been browsing on here and saw your posts. I'm not positive yet but I'm sure i'm heading up to Coldfoot for the summer. I might be transferring units up to fairbanks (National Guard) but I won't know for sure until next week. If I do go up there it would be late april or so. If you want to chat let me know. So far i'm heading up by myself, I would be traveling from Missould over to Great Falls then up to Canada. Let me know!? :D

My friend and I decided to fly up, The drive would be too costly. We are going to be working at Mt. McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge.

Flying into Fairbanks from Boston and then probably either flying from Fairbanks to Coldfoot or some other form of transportation

What is a "chat?" I am still figuring out these technological things and got my first computer last year!

Sounds great though tomatoes and peppers need really consistently hot weather...but heck I've never grown anything in the Arctic and I can't wait to try everything. You should start the tomotoes and peppers in little trays or bowls before planting them straight into the ground....they will have a 200% better chance of surviving up there. Just a thought

I already have the following and I think it will be sufficient
beets, carrots, green bunching onions, garlic, kale, chard, lettuce, salad mix, and turnips

Heck yeah! Lets have a community coworker garden! I would love that! I am bringing up all the seeds we could possibly need and I will be coming June 3rd.

See ya there! I hope to do lots of hiking for sure!

I am indeed! I'm very excited. Should be a great summer.

I was a server. I loved it. Really want to go back. I'm not to familiar with Coldfoot, only went up there a few times, but the cafe is cool. I've seen your looking for a server job up there. Please keep me posted with what they say to you because I might call them tomorrow or the next day and see why their haven't hired me back yet. Serving up there would be fun. You'd get to meet a lot of truckers and crazy tourist that past the arctic ciclre that want to go to Prudhoe Bay. I mostly dealt with Holland American Tours, which I think you'll have to deal with to but if they have it set up like they did last year, they shouldn't be having big dinners up there.
I've seen a few of your post and from I've gathered your going to love it. Just don't be dramatic. I only lived with a few people and there were still some crazy times, you are in the middle of nowhere and your not going to see a Safeway or whatever for awhile. But you'll love it, I did, shoot I want to go back. At Coldfoot, I hear its easier to get beer (if thats what your into) because you'll make friends with the truckers and they'll buy you stuff from town. If you smoke, I think they only have Camels and Marlboros.
And I don't know, its a really cool place to work. You'll be in the mountains and there really pretty. If you go up in April it should be still pretty snowy and you'll get to see break up. I hear its not the ideal A&E Alaska but man it was good for me. Its what you make it. Some people walked away mad and some people walked away with a permanent smile, like me.
But remember keep me posted on what Brett and Michael tell you about the hiring thing, cause damn I want to go back.

Dominic,
Where have you been? Every ones worried sick. It's been over a day, and in the Seasonal Addicts Anon world, that's far too long to be away from coolworks.com

I hope you're okay!

Your friend,
Catherine

(lol)
