OK, this post is for those of you who do not already know.. I have recently been offered a job with the Northwest Company. This an amazing opportunity that we just cannot pass up. I am going to be in training for about a year, after which I will receive my own store in a remote location in Canada...somewhere....Cold I presume. The Northwest stores carry everything for produce, to stereos, cribs, snowmobiles/ATVs and now trucks apparently(special order I would think). Their clientel are either Inuit or First Nations for the most part. This new job will allow Tina the luxury of being home while the kids grow up, no more worries about Childcare! They provide a house, a food allowance, and pay for the utilities and basic amenities that we will need.
My last day with Winners will be May18th and we are planning on moving on the 31 of May or the 1st of June. We are moving to Fort Rae Northwest Territories. Fort Rae is a Dogrib First Nations community about 45 Min's to an hour outside of Yellowknife. Fort Rae, also known as Rae-Edzo and apparently has been renamed as of last year, thanks Brad, and is now known by it's Dogrib name Behchoko (Bay-cho-ko). There is a skating arena, swimming pool, approx 1900 population. Tina and I are very much looking forward to the isolation and slowing things down a bit and spending more time with the kids. We are going to miss all of you and we hope the you keep in touch. We will be keeping you all updated by posting regularly on the blog and there will be no stopping the pictures coming through. For those of you who read Mine and Adam's blog, I will be posting some Kick ass pictures that will blow away all of his, as he will be taking over East coast outdoors! Little Piece of Texas will be known as "Just below 63" as we will be just below the 63'rd Parallel. Northern Lights here we come!
