"I’m leaving in two hours to get on a flight to Alaska for some seasonal forestry work and my boyfriend and I will be separated again. He’s stationed in Olympia, deep sea fishing in the Bering Sea. We’ve been together for four years with a lot of separation because of our work, so we’re used to it, but I still worry a lot about him since he’s doing one of the most dangerous jobs in the world."
"Has anything bad ever happened while you’ve been apart?"
"He stabbed himself once. You know, the boat moves around a lot and those guys are moving fast gutting fish and he stabbed himself in the leg."
"What about you?"
"Once I almost got trampled by a moose."
