Hockey Mom For Vice-President

Outside the Sully after the Governor's Cup in Oct 2007. UAA Seawolves stole the cup from my UAF Nanooks. My first live hockey games.

I can't post a picture of my friend Neders, my daughter Tor and a presidential running mate without posting a picture of me with my Nanook Hockey gear.

One week countdown to Cold Ass Bay. Everything seems to be falling into place, not like Plan A, more like plan A, B & C combined with D.

For gates they look pretty nice with a nice fish design on them.

This is what the Worthington Glacier looked like driving back from Anchorage Wed night. Check out the Gig Harbor Scene blog to compare what it used to look like when she lived up here. Worthington Glacier in 1952.

Nailed the Job!!

The interview went well and I was hired as the cook for a hunting lodge in Cold Bay for September and October. The owners live in a beautiful home on the upper hillside overlooking Anchorage. I drove up there to meet with them.
Thats Denali in the distance above the clouds in the picture on the left. The picture above is Cook Inlet and Anchorage.
Now I've got 2 weeks to get ready to go make some good money.
Thanks for all the good wishes!
And a big thanks to Craigslist jobs for hooking us up.

Salmonberries are so cool looking as they are not always the the same color picked from the same bushes. Look how big one salmonberry is next to the dime for size. Flash frozen then bagged for later days.
