If I were a carpenter, and you were spring in Fairbanks

Summer arrived today as it hit 70F in Fairbanks. The wind was warm and I sneezed my damn head off, pollen counts are off the charts this spring and it's killing me. Hopefully it will subside soon and the eyes will stop itching. Here are some shots from the past 2 weeks.

First kill of the season. Big, slow, and surprisingly satisfying to destroy. Bloodsuckers.

Second kill of the season; growlers of 'Foxanator' from Silver Gulch Brewing. A very tasty, near amber beer. The nice thing about growlers is they force you to drink a gallon at a time.

Satellite internet by Hughesnet. I became a certified installer last week, bought a system and set it up as a test. Of course the neighbor had to come check it out. This will go into the Brooks Range 200 miles north of Fairbanks so I can surf in the middle of nowhere. Technology doesn't sleep. If you want a system installed, send me a message. I charge on a sliding scale- the cooler and more remote- the cheaper. Hughesnet is also having a deal this month, complete system with 2 yr. contract: $199 after rebates. Such a deal.

I'm working for a buddy right now who is finishing up his dream house. This is about as modern as Fairbanks gets with great, sunny views of Murphy Dome road. This will soon get a big deck between the first and second floor. Sweet.
