Midgetts on Round the World Tour
Their plan is to take a year off and see as much as they can see on $100 a day.
Arlo Midgett left UAS on June 1, 2010. He and his wife, Oksana, are on a round-the-world backpacking trip. Their plan is to take a year off and see as much as they can see on $100 a day. They are vigilantly blogging and podcasting their experiences at www.postcardvalet.com as well as on their Twitter and Facebook accounts and on Arlo’s personal blog at http://blog.arlomidgett.com.
Oksana has strong ties to the university. She worked as a student assistant in the ITS department, received her BBA from UAS as an international exchange student in 2002, and an earned an MBA from the School of Business in 2008. Arlo arrived at the Juneau campus in 1994 as a Liberal Arts student. He has worked in Media Services since 1999, and has, on occasion, taught as an adjunct for Arts and Sciences.
He has every intention of finding another job at UAS when they return to the States in 2011.
