I would like to fill in a little more back story on my second year in the bush. First, November of that year, I remarried. No, not an Alaskan. Women ask me all of the time if it is true that the male/female ratio is more favorable in Alaska. It is. But instead I married an old friend, Walt, who was living in New Jersey which is how I migrated from Ohio. We have been married three and a half years and it has been a good thing.
Second, I spent part of that school year working in Fairbanks. Allow me to sum that up: I LOVE Fairbanks. It is a college town that is immensely diverse and filled with lots of things to do, panoramic views and some of the nicest people I have ever met. Over thirty languages are spoken in the Fairbanks schools. The two also boasts two military bases and I had the extreme pleasure of working with some of the children at Ft. Wainwright. Nice nice kids!
I will try to add some more photos from Fairbanks later.
