A one season contract that you might be terminated in is kind of questionable though the pay is not shabby. It screams for someone with Alaska time (that's the only way to meet the insurance requirements unless you work for Kenmore Air Harbor and maybe another one or two carriers) and if they wanted someone who wasn't current in a 206 or 207 on wheels I might be interested as a summertime retirement gig in a few years.

The Greatland may well get under your skin though and nothing makes better chili than Moose meat. Get away from Anchorage and the combat fishing and you can't believe it unless you've done it. Winter, heck...it just makes me think of a Robert Service poem-but not in a good way. I made it through a winter but dang the cold-it takes on an adversarial presence of its own.

Smoked Salmon done by someone who knows what they're doing? You've never eaten anything better!

I'm glad I get to layover in Anchorage every once and a while and it almost scratches the itch enough...and mostly reason rears it's ugly head and smacks me around a bit with memories of -20 F and less for a months at a time and mosquitos making it so you can't see through a bedroom window screen in the summer.

In many ways it is still the Last Frontier (even though every pass has a dead miner and or a wrecked plane or two) and the allure is haunting...I'm not sure anyone I know who was qualified years ago is still interested but I will pass it on if I bump into anyone but dang, part of me wishes it were something that didn't require the seaplane rating. Not that I have any time in an Otter even on wheels...

Like I said, The Greatland can get under your skin...
