Our son got a new job and quit his old job. His new job pays better and he will get to see new things, that is the good part. The bad part is that it is located on the North Slope of Alaska!! That is a long ways away from Texas, both in miles and in temperature. Here is a map of Alaska, look for Deadhorse:
He will be working east of Deadhourse near Point Thomson. Yes, it is an oilfield job and he will be in north slope training for a few days at the ANS or Alaska North Slope.
He showed me some of his cold weather gear. He needs more but you just can't find a lot of that kind of thing down here in Texas. He had to order it and at least he got one complete suit to start and said when he has a layover in Anchorage, he will look for more.
I am anxiously awaiting photos from him. I will never get to travel to that area, even if I wanted to (grin). Well at least he is getting up there in the summer, but even so, there is a big difference from the temperatures up there compared to here. I think that would be a real shock to a person's system, but then, it may feel very refreshing. I sure hope all goes well for him and he enjoys his work. Now you all have a great day, you hear?
