Friends of Fairbanks

October 8, 2018

I met two guys from LA waiting for my flight from Chitina to McCarthy and we started talking about all the cool places we’d been to in Alaska.  At one point in the conversation I told them that I’d lived in Fairbanks from September to March of 2013, because I wanted to watch it get…

February 21, 2011

You only get one life, so why not take some chances now and again. Quitting a great job in the middle of the worst economy since the Great Depression  might not seem like the best decision at first, but if history is any indicator its a great idea.  I did this once before, in 1998.  I was…

For anyone who’s ever taken a road trip in Vietnam, you know what a harrowing experience it can be.  For those of you who haven’t you’ll just have to take my word for it.  There are tons of traveler cafes and every backpacker you meet has an opinion about which ones are good, which ones…
