My wife and I lived on Eielson from 2001-2004, where we both fell in love with Alaska and the people up there.

Well, after being away a couple years we might be returning sooner than later. As it sits, I'm awaiting word of employment for a position in Fairbanks.

Anyways, the position would have me flying all over the Northern half of the state into bush communities doing my thing (I won't say what or who it's with). I think it will be awesome. The weather doesn't bother me, nor the long nights (month long nights, lol). I did my time outside in the -60 winter.

I guess one thing I'm curious about is this. What has opened now? I mean there's a Walmart in Fairbanks, and a Barnes and Nobles Bookstore, a Lowes/Home Depot thing going on, and of course Fred Meyers. But, I noticed something about Best buy hiring for Fairbanks, anyone know if one is opening up there? I can see it doing well with all the money soldiers are bringing back with them after the year in Iraq (and guaranteed more deployments in the future). Anyone hear about this, Best Buy?

Cheers,
Adam
