    It's minus -24 degrees in Northern Alaska today.


    I do not like Alaska one bit. It has terrible weather most of the time and the people are druggies, drunks or loners.

    I am making as much on my lunch break as Blackwater guys make all day, so it's not a
    situation I would pass up, plus being around others on assignment with me, i.e normal people, makes it

    Knowing I return to Santa Barbara after 35 days is a great thing to look forward to. Looks like it will warm up to -18 on Friday.

    • Just because the North Slope has lousy weather doesn't mean that all of Alaska does. I've been down south on several occasions in the summertime and the weather is very nice - with the scenery being incomparable. Even in winter though, cities like Anchorage and especially Juneau have far less severe weather than upper midwest cities in the Lower 48.

      With the lousy overall economy and the money you're earning in Northern Alaska, you can hardly complain. And besides the money you earn, you can probably win a whole lot more if you are good at cards. I imagine that just like in the Navy, there are some serious pinochle and other gambling card games that go on where you are. Participating in card games against "fish" is one of the big things that I miss from my two years of active duty in the Navy in the late '60's.
