Enjoying My New Start in Life


Here are some pictures from my trip to Alaska. The Cabin is owned by the boys and the only way to get there is by sled. The weekend I got there they took me to the cabin. We had a great time spending the weekend there.



The next weekend we headed to the mountains for some real sledding. When they told me we where going to the top, I thought they where nuts. What a great time. The pictures are hard to tell how high you are... but its up there.

Sorry for the urgency, but you'd better hurry up and find one. That looks like so much fun!!!!

A few of us were talking about when we are going to make the trip out there (Alaska). Would love to come this summer, but you need a house first.

Dear Heather

OK. That was AWESOME!!!! I love the mountains! I can't wait to come and visit. Heather, I have a campstove, tent, sleeping bags, you bring the flashlight and GRIZZLY BEAR repellant!!! That would be reason #1 for a HOUSE Jari!! I can just see me now,l getting dragged away in my sleeping bag for a grizzly bear taco!! (Or a Laurie-in-a-blanket) : ) LK.

Well most of the people up there sleep with a 44mag or something under the pillow... and if you don't have one, just trip your friend while running away. This is called baiting the bear... LOL
Or maybe put your food around Heathers tent and you will be fine.
All in good fun...

Duke is going to be one busy boy!
All those tents, all that food ... do you s'pose there is a grizzly survival school for dogs or does instinct take over?

Thanks again for the good laugh. Days I am at work and REALLY need a break, I jump on the blog for a bit. I am usually able to get in a good laugh and can go back to work refreshed. Today was no exception.

Jari, need any more long johns? How did you do in the cold and snow? Maybe worrying about grizzly bait will keep all your visitors warm.

Great pictures of some awesome country!!!

Dear B
Keeping your visitors thinking and moving will always keep them warm. Why worry about where and what you live in. Life is to short... Live, enjoy and have fun.. then die happy.
Hope you and Wayne can come and visit also.... ASAP that is after we move there..
