I am new here to the forum and already have learned alot
I am looking to relocate in the near future sooner the better. I was thinking Fairbanks originally but now I'm not sure. I have been to Juneau before I have a cousin that lives there he is a deckhand in sitka. I would be looking for work where ever I go. I am not afraid of no hard work. I have worked in disaster recovery for the past 4 years always on call no problem. I am use to the cold weather... honestly I look forward to the -40 I have taken plenty of snow mobile trips to the U.P. in Michigan. I really enjoy fishing things of that nature. cottage living
I would like advice from you guys on what would be smart to do. I am 22 years old I have a 5 year old son. (I will be coming alone. get on my feet then get him and his mother out there as well.)
I do not drink alcohol and can pass a drug test 365 days a year. From what I have talked to some people on other forums that is big in Alaska. alot of alcoholics. I put in to get my passport so I can drive. I have a new set of tires waiting to be put on when I start my drive. also a brand new spare tire. I have plenty of tools I will be bringing as well so I'm not worried. new battery etc. I have plenty of carhartts 2 bibs a set of coveralls 3 coats haha just what i have got over the past 4 winters.
I would really like to get an oilfield job or a deckhand job. I am willing to do whatever it takes. I prefer to work long hours 6-7 days a week because that's where the money is at
