to travel for work or not

So as the days go on new opertunitys arise every day to work and make more money. lately i have been offered a job to travel to kodiak alaska to make twice as much money as i have ever made in my life. The thing is Alaska is spread so thin that the most densly populated area (anchorage) is no bigger than the average size suburban town in rural california, note i said rural.. Any how i currently live in soldotna which is on the south peninsula of kenai and close to the river and the ocean, the position is in kodiak on a small island south of here. The delema would be that i would need to travel there and stay there for a month and then come home for a few weeks and then go back. granted the money makes ya think about doing it but then that time away from my wife and kids sends a gut wrenching pain in the bottom of your stomach (know what i meen).

So here i go on contemplating weather to do this or not. Trust me its not easy cuz just about any work out here that pays what im used to will require me to be on the slope for two weeks and then home for two weeks.. so I think I will let the wife choose this one. after all she would be the one hit hardest from the whole ordeal.

so i said i would post pics and dam its so hard to get things up on here cuz i dont quite know how to work it and never spend time messing with it.. so ill try now and pull them from my photo bucket....
This is what i did before i came to alaska. Built this for Ryan Kado of sacramento california
this is out front of my place
And out back. you can see we started clearing out the trees to build the jib park.
the trees go all the way to the kenai river, if i liked fishing this would be amazing, but since i dont really care then well ya its just their haha.
driving into soldotna, it dosent look like much cuz everything is spread so far apart.
its funny theres supposedly 7k people in soldotna but you wouldnt be able to tell just by looking at it.

well thats all for now. ill try and post some day night pictures for you guys to see what its like at 11 pm and 11am and how there exactly the same lol.
