Three weeks ago life at our house changed once again.
My son Christopher found out that he was hired at a new job
we’ve been busy getting him ready ever since.
Not your typical job, but my son has never been typical.
He likes things that are EXTREME!
He is working for Icicle Seafoods.
This is one of the largest seafood companies.
Here is a Video Link telling about this work.
He will be working and living on a ship in the oceans of Alaska.
His ship is called RM Thorstenson , click to see a picture.
Since they are out on the ocean we have NO contact with him!
Occasionally they are in a port that has cell phone or internet access
but not very often.
He flew from Seattle to Anchorage to Dillingham, Alaska.
Last current ship position was heading towards Bristol Bay.
The ship was suppose to be processing herring but due to heavy ice,
they are going straight to salmon processing.
The expected return for this season is November 5, 2012.
I was lucky enough to go up to Seattle with him last week, as he had to sign papers.
Then on Friday June 15, 2012, from there,
flew off to his wild adventure on the icy ocean!
Yes we are all following the Alaskan News
trying to track his ship on websites
following his local weather
watching Deadliest Catch (his favorite show)
so he can feel all of our good vibes coming to him from Las Vegas!
We are very proud of him and can’t wait to hear all about it when he returns!
BE SURE TO
leave Christopher a message here and I’ll get it to him when I hear from him.
