Hi everyone. I'm glad I found this group... I don't know anyone else IRL whose husband or partner works in the oil field. One of the women in my knitting group's husband is an ice road trucker...that's the closest thing though. My husband works in Prudhoe Bay and is gone for 3&3s (used to be 4&2s, but those don't work for us). I keep busy by hanging out with friends & knitting (also I'm on Ravelry a lot, lol, that place is addicting!). Also I'm a bit of an introvert so I don't mind being alone, I find it refreshing.
I live in Fairbanks, Alaska--anyone else live there? It might be nice to meet some new people. :)
