"Anchorage (pop. 300k) has 3-4 LAs on staff, split between facilities, parks&rec, etc.  I think the superintendent of parks&rec is an LA as well."

Hi Edward - Thanks for the response. I'm doing well these days. Work brought me out to Portland a bit over a year ago and it's been a great experience. My family and I are pretty much acclimated to Oregon and we try to spend our weekends exploring new places.

I try to keep up with Land8, but find that I don't use it much myself. How are you these days? What are you up to?
