Father’s Day 2013

Great weekend, we finally made it into the Nome Creek area for a weekend of camping and ATVing.

Gearing up for summer

So now that all the snow is gone its time to gear up for summer. This includes moving all my survival gear from my sled bags (on sled and backpack) to my ATV bag. I don’t carry a backpack when I’m ATVing, but maybe I should, something to consider in case I have to walk more »

Life in Alaska

Back from the Alaska bush. My trip into the Brooks Range was, well, exciting to say the least. We left Friday late afternoon and arrived at a lake about 185 miles north of Fairbanks and 80 miles north of the Arctic Circle. I’ll say now, it was beautiful… We had a great dinner and got more »
