Hello from Alaska. I just found the ITS site, and now love it! Great topics!

Welcome to the best forum on the Internet!

 

There is another active member (actually forum moderator and life member) on here, Longhaul, that lives up in your neck of the woods and a couple other guys from up in the Fairbanks area. 

 

I have lived down in AZ for the past going on 3 years now, but I am a born and raised Alaskan. I was a firefighter/emt down in Juneau before going to work in Fairbanks doing contract helicopter SAR.

Put good in, get good out.

Thanks! I'm born and raised here too. Right now I'm working as a medic on an off shore oil platform. Not the most existing thing ever, but it pays for my gun addiction. :biggrin: It's a lot slower than the more fast paced world of being in a Fire Department like I'm use too. I have family down in AZ.

Welcome! It's nice to see another Alaskan on board. There are a few of us here, but not very many. Yet...

Shoot Longhual, more Alaskans than Oklahomans. All the other Okies join, post once or twice then disappear like a Boeing 777-200ER (too soon?).

Welcome aboard bro.

Oookay, my last off topic post.

BTW AKFiremedic, don't be surprised when a thread runs from asking what's the best magazine for a rifle to how to secretly pick up whores in Thailand or some shit. I think every thread in the forum has gotten high jacked in some form or another. Most of the time it works out in the best of ways.

Some of the best ITS discussions started as hijacks. I think part of what makes this such an amazing community is we all just roll with it.
