The ice is melting...

... yet another good reason for you to visit Alaska now. So I started this blog to keep everyone up to date with what Brian and I are doing in Alaska, and hopefully to convince some of you to visit. I've been posting pictures on Picasa lately and sending out emails but it doesn't seem to be working. :)

On another note, strange but interesting things have been happening to us since we moved here. Moose in the front yard, broken bones, bear encounters, snow caves, plane crashes, trips with odd looking people... just to name a few. Hopefully I can relay some of these stories to all of you and document them at the same time in this blog.

Inevitably now that I have started this blog, all of the interesting happenings will cease. I'll have to resort to boring stories about our everyday lives, with titles like, "Brian fixed the Sump Pump!" or "I planted a potato" or the ever popular "Kim brought over a bottle of scotch and we missed our hike.. again". But hopefully that won't happen.

Here is a link to pictures of our latest trip... it was a glacier traverse across the Chugach Mountains in early May. Enjoy! (Oh, and BTW I did not take these pictures, they kinda suck, Brian and I both forgot our cameras.)

Speaking of trips with odd looking people...

I am wondering who broke bones. I hope all is well. I just started using Picasa myself, and was thinking about starting a blog but realized not too much is going on in my life now that I have a 7 month old. Well, that is unless there is a niche for Dirty Diaper blog entries.

Hey Matt, I broke my leg a month after we got here. Remember? I missed Becky's wedding because of it.

So I know I'm not mentally that slow, and I don't think I have a case of dyslexia, but I'm thinking..."What the hell is Alaska4buddies?" You want me to be your Alaskan Comrade?

Then I took a second to collect my mental wits and said to myself, "a Budgie is a Parakeet..." anyway after really looking at it, I got it. WOW. Time for a friggin' vacation.
What a coincidence that I will be arriving there on June 27th. Yeeehaa!!!!

Yes, Alaska B 4 U DIE, there were all of these HUGE billboards posted around cities. This year I think it's something corny like, "Big, Wild Life". They must be running out of ideas..
