    Haha... thats cool, man... I am so envious. Alaska looks like such a beautiful place to live. I am thinking about moving there when I get through college. What kind of jobs/industry is there out there? Any potential of good income?

    Later...

    Hey Todd,

    Thought they said that everything's big in Texas, I guess that's huge in AK.

    Am currently trying to rebuid my 88 ... hope it looks that good when I'm done. Have this boyhood dream of spending the summer in AK (maybe the rest of my life). Am working really hard to make it happen this year.

    Where is Haines? ... Am shooting for the Kenai, but will be checking out the job market throughout.

    Nice job on your picture site also.

    Thanks Backlash,,,,

    Shoot,, Tx is PUNY compared to AK,,,,, AK is bigger than 1/3 the whole US!
    Haines is in the south east pan handle,,, 80 miles North of Juneau... I used to live in Anchorage and Kenai,, have family up in Kenai still... It's much nicer down here.

    My mother lived in Homer for about ten years ... never got a chance to visit, but fell in love with the idea from just ready and watching TV. Guess that's why I'm fixed on Kenai!

    Currently work for the Health Unit in the U.S. Park Service in DC. Trying to get a lead on a job up there. I do know they have an office in Juneau.

    Tell me why it's better down there!

    It's better cuz the weather is milder,,, 40's right now here compared to teen's up there. Our ocean is cleaner cuz of all the billions of gallons of glacier water dumping into it every day. the salt content is lower,, we can catch shrimp right off the beach,, no shrimp left in Kenai... They do have the biggest King salmon's though,,, it's prettier here.
    Shall I go on? hehehehehehe

    Nice pic... When the pic first started coming in (blurry) I thought a K5 was jumping over your rig.[​IMG]
