Decision to Move
I think this is one of the hardest decisions I've ever made. The one to leave Alaska. In some ways I'm excited and in others, dare I say it. Apprehensive, in fact very apprehensive. After residing here for 34 years. I have lived in this old mobile home on the Permafrost Ranch thirty two of those years. I had failures and successes living here. I raised two beautiful daughters who have children of their own now. I started a business and failed. I worked on one of the worlds largest construction projects, The Alaskan Pipeline. I worked to clean up one of the worlds largest environmental disasters, The Exxon Valdez Oil Spill. I have made friends, lost some and I made enemies. I lost parents, relatives and friends in the passing of this time. I have passed from young to old. Now, the unknown is my biggest fear.
