I live on the Kenai Peninsula. It's a small close-knitted community. I'm spoiled here. Used to live in Fairbanks too where Brenda lives many years ago when Fairbanks pretty much closed up everywhere at 6 PM. Loved it too at the time. It seems that different age groups here prefer different locations in Alaska for living. Brenda's right, there's an excellent Trooper Academy there in Fairbanks. You may like it. It's a good start.
