Yeah, I would have so done that when I was young. This old body just wouldn't stand for that type of abuse now.

I wish I had the time/money to prepare and do the things he's done. In the meantime, I can watch his journey across Alaska.




I'm perfectly fine with being a 'touristy' to a degree for the first voyage... but the trip definitely will not be about travel company guided tours and lush accommodations - I'm sure you can see and do a lot with them, however, we are of the exploring mindset. ;)





Often, that's all it takes. You are limited however to what you can experience. Alaska has so much to offer. Wolves killed a teacher last March in the village we were once at. Native culture can not be replicated. I saw whales so close to the beach that I could hit them with a rock. Went on a seagull egg hunt on a uninhabited island. Saw a 1200# bear run past my front door. Did I tell you that we are moving back up there in 14 months? :BANANA:

Sure. We're going up in the Northwest around Wainwright or Kotzebue. Bring your parka. Try to eat at least a dozen spoiled anchovies a day to prepare you for the tainted (there's that word again) whale blubber. :dizzy: :pepper:

Hot springs up near the town of Circle. The owner closed it down a few years ago. Very historic little place. The main building was built in early 1900's.
