After spending 54 years from birth to 2008 living in Iowa I was presented with an opportunity to live in Fairbanks, Alaska. My blog is a diary of the adventure to get to Alaska, day to day life in Alaska, as well as facts for loved ones left behind in the Lower 48. Enjoy.

Final Fall Photos
Brian and Camilla standing in front of their cabin (it's a duplex).
The view across the road from Brian and Camilla's cabin.

Here's a photo of Fairbanks I found on the web. We live very close to the A in Alaska. See the mountains near the top of the page? (Remember if you click on the photos they will enlarge.)
Nate and I drove the 15 miles to North Pole, Alaska to Santa's Workshop. Here's a photograph of one of his reindeer.
Approaching train against the colorful birch trees.
A memorial was held for 8 homeless people who died last winter in the elements. One of our finest was there to offer his words of comfort to other homeless, friends of the deceased.
A photograph of some attendees at the memorial service which was held downtown. A committee has been formed to create shelter for the non-sober homeless, as currently those individuals are turned out into the streets. There is a 24-hour shelter for sober homeless.
