I've been to every state in the union, except one: Alaska.
That's about to change. My next work assignment will take me to Juneau, the capital of Alaska, in the Alaskan panhandle.
No, I'm not being banished there. I've been keeping my fingers crossed for the opportunity. (And thanks J, for making it happen!)
I'll be relocating in February, for the next year and a half or so. Between now and February, I'll be splitting my time between West Virginia and Alaska. From either Charleston or Rochester, it's a 14-19 hour journey each way, with 4-5 flight segments. So for most of my weekends over the next few months, you'll find me either in the air or at an airport.
The grueling travel schedule aside, to say that I'm wildly excited about living and working in Alaska would be understatement... :-)
Northern Lights, here I come...
