*hugs* I'm still around.
Are you sure you want to go back to Alaska? Things there have gotten pretty bad. Fairbanks is so freakin expensive now, I HAD to leave - I'm assuming Anchorage isn't much better. Several years ago you could rent a cabin with no plumbing for like $300/mo and now the same cabin still with no running water would be about $750/mo. My apartment was 280 square feet and cost $500 when I moved in, 3 years later it was over $900 and it was in the ghetto of fairbanks. My boyfriends 1 bedroom was $1300/mo :eevil:
Nothing like driving a subaru impreza that was pulling a U haul trailer out of Alaska in freakin WINTER with 1 dog, 1 chinchilla and 23 tropical fish of which only 2 made it to NY alive. The backseat window was open when it was -40 outside plus windchill from driving and all that cold was blowing on to my fish.
Unless you have shares in Arctic Slope Regional Corp and get the extra $12,000 a year dividend OR can get a job on the north slope or at UA, its not any better there then it is here.
You can find me on facebook too but I think I already have U as a friend.
I lost one of my pets too - Rosie, the malamute/wolf mix and puffy the chinchilla :(
I think the Ghetto and CF board still exists somewhere in cyberspace. I know the CF has a facebook page. The new pony cartoon on the HUB channel has brought in a whole new line of fans and members, many who are not too fond of the older generations.
Do you know how far you are from lake george or Queensbury, NY? it's about an hour from Rutland
PS - I also have a crappy job. They schedule me 6 days a week BUT it only comes to 20 or so hours a week. SO not worth the 60 miles a day of driving >.<
I don't miss fairbanks at all. Too many drunks all over the place.
