Just south of Anchorage. I lived at Mile 101 Bird Creek which is not under threat at this minute.
Fire managers discouraged travel on the Seward Highway and said they will shut down the highway if it becomes necessary for public safety.

+James Lucas I think we mostly agree. Ideally a degree gives you background and a certification gives you up to date knowledge on a specific area. Most colleges are more than a little bit behind when it comes to the specific skills people are looking for. I think the most important thing you learn in undergraduate is a kind of basic critical thinking capacity, and the thing you learn in graduate school is a solid and broad background in X. (And a demonstrated ability to work harder than should be realistically possible at times!)

When I did get MS certs, I suffered for not having a degree. Now I'm in the other boat (my certs having long expired and not related to what I am into now). I have a bachelor's in math and am about to finish my Master's, but the jobs I want require this plus some certification, i.e. SAS. Oh, and relevant experience!

Both grilled and raw items will satisfy you. Any level of heat is available. Freindly, inviting and best service for socializing or a quick meal. YSH fills a gap in fresh restaurant fare on Tudor Road.
