  1. That seems to be the way with many boards, the upper one, two or three chairmen seem to be stuck to do all the work. I have left all my seats for the same reason. I am still active in just one association, a knife making one and again, I am one of two doing all the work.
  2. I'll tell you the same thing I tell my wife ( she just said the same thing to me that you said), it was actually 11 days ago. Seems a lot longer than that though.
  3. We're pretty much free range up here still. We sure like it that way. I'm leaving for a five day trip tomorrow and it won't cost me a thing except the gas for the motor home.
  4. Not in Alaska. Not any time soon anyway.
  5. I'm sure it's a fine thing to do, and certainly wouldn't hurt.
  6. Never even thought of it, but it's probably a good idea.
  7. Well, that stuff is very cool. I feel like I'd be beholding to you. I'd have to think of something cool for you.
  8. Very cool. After you get done with that, could you make me a Ragnar Lothbrook and a Lagertha? Just teasing. Have fun.
  9. Yeah, the last picture is of the first fish I caught one morning. That was just a few minutes after we got to the house, It looks pretty frosty in the house. Most of the other pictures show us in much less clothing, after things warmed up a bit. We're actually having a very mild winter up here. For the most part it's hovered around zero all winter. Not too bad really. Our holes haven't even been freezing up over night with the hole covers on them.
  10. You are the one that clicked it wasn't for kids. Either I am confused or you are. I guess I understand after SDs comment.
  11. It's 70 degrees in the house, Fahrenheit. 😄
  12. Why would it have not been for kids?

    .40 might be OK for black bears, maybe. A grizzly is a whole other thing. I'd go with what SD said for black bears but for grizzly country, I'd go with a large caliber rifle. Where James lives (and fishes) there are mostly black bears but there is an occasional grizzly. What he needs is a dog to go with him. We have had black bears and once in a while a grizzly eating dog food out of bowls in peoples yards. It's even worse near Anchorage. Someone gets eaten every other year around there. Like I said, he's fine for now.
  14. No, that's a poster that was given to me by a friend. It's something someone painted.

    A classic oldie but goody. We have lots of bears up here, James just hasn't seen any of them yet. Right now they are all asleep so he doesn't have to worry, not for three more months or so.
