@kareng57 here is the other thread:
Good info - but again, about where in Alaska?
Unless it's something like a really remote fishing destination, you'll probably find that there's decent TV satellite reception, and shops where you can buy basic stuff like shampoo, toothpaste etc. When our family toured Alaska, we found that there were many seasonal student employees from the lower-48 who seemed to be having the time of their lives (even if they'd never encountered ground squirrels in restaurants before.. )/
Its remote.... very very remote. Think three hours from a big city remote. Which I don't mind really. I just... yeah. I think it would be more on the water and stuff since they have fishing and such that people the come to the lodge can do. Also what do you mean ground squirrels in restaurants?
And JenJay everything is provided for us as far as lodgings go. I will only be there five months, and come back to Ohio in September, so I only need 2 bags (a check in and a carry on). I just.... I'm one of those people who likes to plan ahead, stress out, and then I will be completely calm because I know what I have to do. Also, thank you for the link!
Ground squirrels - certainly didn't mean to scare you, it was more humorous. They are feisty little things and will try to enter the restaurant through the main or deck doors in an attempt to steal crackers. Usually, they had succeeded by the time that the youthful staff chased them out - generally by gently butting-them with tall restaurant menus.
Overall it sounds like a wonderful adventure.
