      Sounds like a great job. Unfortunately I already have one a lot like it. It's heavy earth movers instead of boats, but I get all the bugs and wind and weather I could ask for. I head for Dawson City Yukon in a couple days, back to the placer mine for the season.

            Used to be my backyard!! Could be good for the right guy! This is a place is a quan't little indian village (lots of tourist fishermen in the summer and also the center of the most profitable salmon industry in Alaska, not far from the best fishing/ hunting in the world, but trust me it will be "culture shock" for 99% of the rest of ya!! I used to fly my float plane out of Naknek the pond is called 'Slopbucket' lake!! Not uncommon to have a few brownbear in town with ya and usually we kept the shotgun next to the sleeping bag (oh thats right you are going to be in a cabin You young bucks ought to jump on it!!
            The men are men and the girls, well they are ok, most have all their teeth still? (just kidding). I miss those days fishing for 20lb rainbows and catching artic grayling till you were to tired to fish! here is a few photos taken in the area.
