Bill tells this blogger: "My wife and I lived in Bethel, Alaska from 1996-1998, a few years after you had left Alaska in 1991. What an amazing opportunity. It was only 2 years, but felt like we had 10 years worth of rich experiences with the place and the people. We were both working for the Yukon Kuskokwim Health Corporation in the hospital and out in the village clinics. I was a strategic planning consultant.''
