I'm driving to Fairbanks, Alaska April 1-8 and was wondering if someone would like to ride along and share the expense's?

That's the plan! Not sure where we'll end up in Alaska though.

Hi Richard,  I'm new at this so bear with me.  Of the 5 princess lodges, all offer housing except here at the Fairbanks Princess.  The other properties are more remote and just amazing.  We are always looking for great people and lots return year after year.  Make sure the managers of your NPS experience.  They go through a lot of applications so it doesn't hurt to send them email as well.  Good luck!

I didn't end up working for CIRI, I heard a lot of bad things about their bushiness practices and chose to go work in Katmai National Park at Brooks Lodge. I think I made the right choice, while I still had management I didn't agree with I was able to spend the summer hiking amazing mountains, playing with bears!, and even found a love for fly fishing. You should definitely make your way to Alaska, it is an amazing place. I've only been back for 3 days and I'm already searching for a reason to go back.

Hi Ranger Rich, So glad to hear from you. We will be leaving this Sat to Moab, Utah, then on to North Rim, then hoping to hike Mt Elbert on the way back to Illinois. I am busy getting the camper ready. My husband still works and I am retired, so I hope to find a camper/hiker/volunteer enthusiast for a 2/3 weeks outing in year 2013 among this group.

Well Hello there, What a pleasant suprise.  Im glad to meet you. I too have been laid off since 2009 and forced to move back to my home town. (Price, Utah) lucky for me I have two wounderful children who are no longer living at home. My son owns his home unmarried in Salt lake City and my daughter is attending collage full time also in SLC, Utah. I heard about this website last summer by a young man while working two weeks in Victor Idaho. What a wounderful website it could not have been introduced to me at a better time. I am indeed interested in working a temp. position somewere other than Utah.  I just returned from a short trip to Lake Powell and realized I needed to look into Coolworks more seriously and here you are. Once again i am interested and will take all the help I can get. Thank you. I will most defenitly keep in touch. Please feel free to send me information or just take me under your wing. Im not sure what to ask so please guide me. Thank you once again.

Hey Ranger Rich,

I just got my ticket to Mesa Verde and will be there April 20th.  I don't know about housing then, so should i plan on staying at the hotel for a few days?  also, what's the weather like so far up there?  I was told it gets cold at night but it's pretty warm/hot during the day.  Also, any basic idea of what I should bring to begin my time there?  I was thinking sleeping bag, flashlight, sweatshirts and such.

Hi, Ranger Rich.  Just thought I would let you know I am headed for Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge on May 6!  I am really looking forward to it as Alaska is my favorite place on earth.  I have seen this Lodge from the road but not gone into it.  I know it's going to be a great summer.  Thanks for all your help, and maybe we'll wind up at the same place one season!

Great Photos! Visited the Grand Canyon in the 80's, Seeing the eons of times past through the layers of the walls canyons was inspiring! Like your blog.

OMG! I wanted to get back in the firefighting scene for like the longest... After the CA Conservation Corps, I was sorta at a loss of what to do. Aside from knowing what a Pulaski is and how to maintain chainsaws, the administrative process on becoming a Wildland firefighter has eluded me. Heck yeah, I would like to chat with you sometime about what's crackin' with the National Park system! And you live in Houston, too! Talk about close lol. (I'm not really from Texas, I'm a Cali' girl... So yeah, I still get lost tryin' to find stuff out here). If I can work for National Parks, I will sooo be happy for the rest of my life!
