I made it, I'm here. After all that I've learned of what may come I decided not to sit around and wait for it. I picked up and moved to Alaska with little money in my pocket. I looked at jobs and ended up working in a cannery in Petersburg for the Summer. It was hell and I don't recommend doing it unless you have no other option. It is very dangerous and the pay sucks. I was working 16hr days toward the end of the summer when things picked up. We were processing millions of pounds of salmon a day. It is truly amazing that Salmon even exist with all that we took over the Summer. It was disgusting work, very unclean and not sanitary at all. Well I finished out the Summer there with a broken hand not to mention that I put a fillet knife through my palm the first two weeks I was there, I'm definitely not cut out for that type of work. I could not believe how many foreigners were working there. It was like I was in a really cold part of Mexico. I was the minority (Caucasian) the rest were from parts of Russia and Mexico.
Anyway, I hopped on a ferry for 60 bucks and made it to Juneau. When I got here I stayed at the Juneau International Hostel for 10$ a day until I found a place to stay, I was renting a room for 700$ a month. That wasn't the best option either but it was all I had, this person I was renting from had (no joke) 40 different birds making noise 24/7 it was driving me crazy. I got a really good job and have since moved out and now I am wondering if I picked a safe part of Alaska... Im in Juneau obviously and pretty close to the ocean.
I was looking at some maps and I am pretty sure I am as safe as I can be for the coming polar shift. I am surrounded by mountains which I hope will break up the tsunamis if and when they head this way. The mountains will act as gigantic break walls there are many of them between myself and the ocean. If someone could look at my location and let me know if there might be a better place I would appreciate it.
I have most of my survival gear purchased and just need to find a cheap place to get MREs or some other type of food ration. Thanks, any help or suggestions would be awesome, you guys are the best! I love the ATS clientele.
I have a pretty amazing story so ask questions, fire away!
