    Hey everyone,
    New guy here from Fairbanks, AK. Took a while to get my account activated (3 weeks or more) so I'm glad to be here and finally able to post.

    Including you, I think we're up to about 6 or 7 Alaskan members, but only about 4 of us(including you) are active posters currently. So far we're the only 'banksans, everyone else is in "the valley" or Anchor-town. :)

    Right on. A small group as always but a good one. I've noticed for as big as Fairbanks is there aren't that many folks on forums up here. When I was in the Marines and stationed in big cities of course there was always tons of people on forums.

    Hey! I think I'd rather be more rural than "the valley" or Anchor-town...spent three and a half years in Delta Junction (thanks to an invitation from Uncle Sam...). I'm originally from a small town in Montana outside of Helena.

    I've lived all over the state, growing up my mom worked for AST so I've lived in Ketchikan, Tok, Wrangell, Anchorage, Soldotna and Fairbanks. I love this state very much and I am glad I made it back. I work with a couple Montanians or however you say it..Pretty nice guys

    Oh...Tok. That's a fun place! That's where I did some of my EMT training when I lived in DJ! I know that stretch of highway well...know the one to Fairbanks too well. Could probably do it with my eyes closed...I put 50K on a truck in two years b/t DJ, Fairbanks, Anchorage and Seward/Homer...

    Yeah I like the Peninsula and Seward quite a bit. Although the Interior has grown on me quite nicely.
