That was just great: I really enjoyed watching Chip's video and I think he has a super family; I would like very much to get there shipping address? My Wife and I would appreciate the opportunity to correspond and too send the kids some little hard to get or expensive items due to the region in the mail; Any help would be appreciated?

Thanks;Dave

I lived in Noorvik as a child. My step-dad was a special-education teacher at the school. This was in the 1980s. Thanks for the tour, and memories.

I lived in Noorvik in 1965-1966.  I was among the first VISTA (DOMESTIC PEACE CORPS) VOLUNTEERS to go to Alaska and was assigned to Noorvik.  I started Headstart in Noorvik and a small  library. We had no electricity or plumbing and since I was from Los Angeles, this was a new experience for me!  I learned so much...and met such wonderful people: Violet and Walter Pungalik, Helen Kagoona are two that I remember well.  I really enjoyed watching Chip's video and seeing how Noorvik has changed in the last 48 years.

How did the TV crew find you and why you? Was it who you knew?  A lottery? Are you happy they follow you around or are you ready to  tie them to a tree?

Chip and Agnes, you are both two of the hardest working people I have seen. Love your relationship and the respect you give each other. Awesome family unit. I am curious about how you get Internet? Also, how did the two of you meet? Stay safe. Doreen Leahy

I think that Chip and Agnes are the best two people on "Life Below Zero". Would love to be able to contact them.
