Looking forward to catching up, Ive been swamped with work since Janurary.
I now find myself working backwards through your videos.
The comment about bald eagles made me laugh, when I was working the Alalska and Bering Sea contracts I woould get so sick of them, they are big, and do not care. haha they know they are able to do whatever they want.
Cell service in Alaska is a tricky thing, I had verizon in Anchorage and Wasilla, some of the larger places. For the most part, Alaska has one cell provider. They were put into place Via an uncle sam contract quite a few years ago, and then the towers sold to (GCI). With it being sooo expensive to build the infasttructure, and GCI not playing nice with other carriers. The larger ones dont have much of a grip to put the money into re doing an entire system for Alaska.
And GCI knows they are the onle game in the state for the most part...
I took a contract on a vessel, a few years back. I had never been on the ocean before, ended up on the ship for 60ish days straight w.o walking on land, Do i have some storries about that... Turns out I dont get sea sick. They vessel went from Dutch Harbor all the way back to Seattle. It was november and when we got to see the inside passage she was beautiful.
