I hate to break this to you but you missed the aurora peak years. This was the last peak year, look it up. Skip Chena hot springs, it was rather gross and crowded.

I enjoyed chena and randomly saw northern lights there one night in April

Fairbanks would def be a better base

Rain is inevitable.

Is 4 days good to have a good time making it a long time? I know ideally we need a week

Can I join you ?

@BC: I think 4 days is enough if you fly into Fairbanks. Driving can take up a lot of time

EY1 do you really wanna join?

Was given an offer and I confirmed it a week ago. recruiter said I’d be getting the paperwork packet on Thursday, haven’t received it yet.

Offer is from a stable F100 and I really liked the team, there’s no reason the offer would be pulled at this stage is there? Like Im naturally anxious, but not sure what’s going on and don’t want to be annoying.
