SHARE A FUN FACT ABOUT YOU
I have relatives who live in Juneau and Sitka Alaska.  My Uncle is a commercial fisherman with his own boat and going out to catch “the BIG fish” was the best. I visited every summer for about 15 years and also spent 3 weeks in Juneau in the month of January to see how I liked the weather because I was thinking about moving there. I loved it! However, I ultimately decided to stay close to my parents.
