   After a exceedingly long hiatus I have decided to return to blogging, mostly in part to maintain my sanity.  You see, I am currently working in the Kotzebue and that is pretty much all I have been doing, working. Since December I have been working 48+hours a week. More often than not, 60, which doesn't leave much room for anything else other than eating, sleeping, laundry while eating and sqeezing in grocery shopping somewhere along the line.
   Don't get me wrong, I came here to work and bank some cash for I need a new roof on the cabin (origional was put on wrong and started leaking two years ago), build a workshop/storage shed and a down payment on a new vehicle.
   The new roofing is still going to be metal, though the contractor tried his best to talk me in to shingles...on a log cabin, OYE! The material that will be used will have the screws covered, so no worry about someone getting over zealous on tightening the screws too tight and popping the rubber grommets.
   The work shed, well, it's basically going to be a small cabin, 16'X20'. I want something that is big enough to store an ATV in and still have plenty of room for other things like an inflatable boat/canoe, kayak, gardening tools, garbage cans, freezer, plus other things I can't remember and still have room to do projects that you don't want to do in the house, but need protection from the weather, like painting or wood working.
   As for the vehicle. Is going to be a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, that is certain. Still not 100% sure on the model,  can't make up my mind Sahara VS Rubicon. Both have their pluses and minuses, hence the problem. Nor am I certain about the colors. 2013, they had Gecko Green, OMG! That was such an awesome color. When I first saw it, my first reaction was "WOW! That is GREEN!", the more I saw it, the more I liked it and ended up falling in love with it. Now, the color spectrum is basically various shades of grey.
If it wasn't for these three things, I wouldn't be working this summer and play/fish all summer long. Maybe next year!
