It's Time




















I start 2015 traveling.  In fact, I'm writing this from a small cafe in the Phoenix, Arizona airport on my way to Deadhorse, Alaska.  You might be wondering...What?!?!?
Lots of things have happened since my last blog post long long ago.  For example, I stopped going to work in Antarctica.  Yes.  It was time.  I worked for six months with the National Park Service as a Visitor Use Assistant at Colorado National Monument.  I loved the job, but it was only a six month seasonal position.  After leaving the NPS, I worked for a while at a small winery in Palisade, Colorado.  I also liked that position a lot.  However, the money was not great.  So what do I do?  After a long time of saying I wouldn't get back into the hotel business, that's what I'm doing.  In Alaska.  On the North Slope.  Almost as far north as one can go in the United States.  It's a good gig.
I get paid well and like my job well enough.  I do have to work 21 straight days, 12+ hours per day.
However, I then get 21 straight days off.  That part, I definitely like.  That's why I'm in the airport in Phoenix on New Years's Day...headed back to work.

So there you go.  I want to start blogging again.  It's time.

I, for one, am glad that your blog is living on as I have enjoyed it very much in the past. Thank you for letting me travel vicariously through your adventures.

Please excuse me if this is completely random, but I have a question about the image you have of Ernie Banks hitting his 500th home run. Do you know where on the internet that file originated. I just found out my dad is in the crowd in that picture and I am trying to figure out if I can get an archived copy of the paper, photo, etc. Thanks for any help you have and sorry if this is weird! :)

I am happy for you, and I am trying not to be jealous. I hate my job.
