The folks 'round here certainly have a different way of looking at the world. This weekend is one of the big annual events; something of a counter point to Burning Man.
So far I've met a plumber that spent two years as a contractor in Iraq, a weather observer that bounces between summers here and Greenland, a secretary that has been here for 14 years and a mechanic that is going out with one other person to spend the season maintaining a 'runway' with a snowmobile for twin otters to refuel out of their 55 gallon drums on the ice.
I had never imaged that I'd be able to mingle and work amongst a group of people this different and amazing. Thanks Melinda!
