Caribou Trip 2, 2016

So the weather is nice and we all have Caribou tags to fill. Normally I’d go up to Rosebud in the Chena Rec area, but that is in zone 1 and was closed while Trish and I were at the cabin in Dec. So Dean, Dave, Jake and I decided to go into the White more »

Merry Christmas

Well trip two for the Caribou was as unsuccessful as the first one. Only thing I got from the 2nd run up to Rosebud was a broken A-Arm on the Bearcat, a spendy repair bill and a still empty freezer. Oh well it’s almost Christmas and I just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas more »

Crazy Weather

The good news is that it wasn’t very cold during the power outage. Of course that is all relevant to whatever one is use to, I figure 20 degrees above zero is a decent temp to lose power under. The temps did drop to a chilly -30 to -40 below zero this past week, but more »

Poop Deck or My Septic System

After 30 some years of functioning quite well our septic system decided it was time to give up the ghost as it were. Around the 1st of the month (Aug 2013) we lost our use of the toilet, shower, and sinks. Fortunately we had the RV and I set it up as a temporary restroom more »

Pre-Memorial Weekend Decision

We had planned to go to Nome Creek again this coming Memorial weekend, however it looks like we’ll be heading in a different direction, where, no idea as of yet. All I know for now is that our camping spot along Nome Creek is buried under 1 to 4 feet of ice. Dang it, it’s more »

Feels Like Spring

Well I’m hoping it is, finally spring that is. With the snow storm coming and ice still on the ground, it feels more like fall, but then the bears are coming out of hibernation, so maybe it is getting closer to summer. Of course the bruin that made this foot print can stay in his more »

Starting work on the Iron Dog Trail

Being close to the end of January I figured it was time to start working on the Iron Dog trail and spent my day off setting the track from the Tanana to the Chena River. This is really a short section of the trail, maybe 6 miles, but I also have to set up the more »

Between ATVing and working on cabins

My weekends and evening are usually spent working in the yard or garden. Over the past few years Trish and I have cut down the size of the garden, mainly to lower the amount of work it takes to plant, weed and water. But with Destiny here and the baby on its way I decided more »

Beaver Point Lodge on Deadman Lake

For the past three years we’ve tried to get a club run into Beaver Point Lodge on Deadman Lake and I’d been thinking that the Deadman Lake part of that title kept folks at bay. Now that we’ve made it there and back I’m kind of glad it was a small group, and it was more »
