I said I never would . . . but
Well folks it has been a good run here in Alaska and I have enjoyed every bit of it. My wife lost her job last July and has been unable to find another in Alaska. In April she sent resumes out to Arizona (where all my family is) and she quickly got job offers, one of which she accepted.
Now I must do something I swore I never would, move away from Alaska. The house is sold and I am finishing the last jobs from the shop to move it. I will re-open my business in Arizona doing the same things but Alaskan projects will need to be mailed, yea I know how much Alaskans love shipping.
I plan to stay a sponsor and remain active here on the forum . . . likely come to Alaska every summer. Iím very sad to be leavening this wonderful place I have lived so long.
