Hey, I live in Upstate NY and my mom suggested that since i'm graduating June 2005 and i'll be 18 in Oct. , i can do a lot of new things next summer... that i could look into traveling to Alaska for the Summer and working there, has anyone else done this or thought about it?? I think it would be a lot of fun, and in a way get me prepared for college and just be an all around good experience... i still have a lot of research to do mind you, its still just a thought. If i did this, i would attempt to get a Job in a city type area like Ancorage because i would like to go to college in a city (i live in a farm county and just looking at options) My Aunt also did this when she grad. from highschool so i would talk to her... Any thoughts on this rough draft would be greatly appreciated!! THANKS!!!
