Well, I hope it all works out for you and you fatten your wallet a bit.  Many of us are going broke around here lately  :roll:

I feel your pain and wish the best for you. If I were not so deeply rooted, I might consider moving myself. I don't know where, but sometimes a change move is good.

I can't believe I said that.

1frozenhillbilly, wow, a move to the country and now to Alaska.   I am sure that your Daughter will be thrilled to have her Father reunited with her.  How long were you in the southern U.S.?  Do you know what you will be up to when you move there?  I wonder if you will try to keep some bees, elaborate for us a little bit, I am sure that we all would love to hear more.  If you cannot get internet service to speak to us, good luck.  I know you will be in touch once you get up to the Great White North.  Have that most wonderful day, to love and live, health.  Cindi

1frozenhillbilly.  Yes, you will love to be back home.  So nice that you may have a chance to housesit for that Cousin, good.  I don't know why some things stick in my head, but it seems to me that when I firstly joined the forum, you may have lived in Alaska at that point in time, hope I am not mixing it up with another forum friend, but I think my memory serves me right.  When did you move from Alaska?  I always like to know things, and I would love to know this thing, smiling.  Good luck.  I know that Alaska is very beautiful, especially in the short summers.  Beauty.  Have that great and most wonderful day, loving this great life, health.  Cindi

When you get settled, please post some pictures of your mine and the surrounding country side. I hope to vacation in Alaska one day. If it is any thing like western Canada, I may want to stay.

john
