Well, summer camps have wound down, but the summer is long from being over. Quite a few of you have heard, but for those that haven't we will be moving from small town life (Bethel) to big town life (Fairbanks, abbreviated FBX from now on). Eric got a job with one of the refuges there so we will be moving the beginning of August. The movers are here and packing us up. Boy, you don't realize how much stuff you can accumulate in 4 years! Good thing we are being moved! We have the reservations made for housing and I just completed the car rental reservations until the truck gets there. The hardest part so far is having to decide what to keep back and what to have the packers pack and move. There is a possibility that we may have up to 60 days without our stuff!
House hunting is going okay. We found a few online that we want to go check out, but we need to actually be in FBX to do that. We know a few people who have recently moved to FBX and they have given us a few recommendations as far as who to go with (realtor wise) and where to live. We are hoping to find a few acres not too far outside of the main part of town. FBX is spread out and there are 4 or 5 smaller towns surrounding it plus Ft. Wainwright and Eielson Air Force base.
Well, this is the final post from Bethel. Next post will either be from the Anchorage airport or the hotel in Fairbanks.
