I’ve been out of touch for several days but don’t worry, I’m still alive! I’ve got some exciting stories to share and should have them posted over the next couple of days.
Plus, I’m getting ready to head to Iowa for some giant whitetails!
I’ll fill you in soon.

Today was the last day we would be spending in Alaska and it was a beautiful day of sunshine. We decided to go to the beach! Yes, there is a beach in Juneau, Alaska! It is called Sandy Beach and is located out on the […]
Check out our pictures from Skagway.
We got up early today. After grabbing a quick breakfast, we drove over to the airport. For $370 at Skagway Air, we purchased 2 round trip tickets from Juneau to Skagway. At 8:30 am our plane departed for Skagway and about 45 minutes later we were on the ground again.
My pictures from our 11th day in Alaska.
We started the day with breakfast at DocWaters Pub, which is in The Wharf building, directly across from our hotel (Goldbelt Hotel in Downtown Juneau). The food was OK. They ‘didn’t have’ the first couple things I ordered so I kept trying until ‘the cook’ wanted to make what […]
Our pictures from day 10 in Alaska at Taku Glacier Lodge.
Caleb and I decided to take a float plane out to the Taku Glacier Lodge. We went to their office and town and were told that there was an opening for us to go out at about 1:00. We met back at the docks and boarded the […]
Pictures from day 9 in Alaska.
Chad, our guide, came by the hotel today and picked us up. We went by his boat and picked up my meat. He then took us to the meat processor and helped get that arranged. I’m having the backstrap frozen, 15 pounds of pepperoni, and the remainder made into summer sausage. […]
Check out my pictures from day 8 in Alaska!
We woke up to another beautiful Alaskan day. It was raining lightly and quickly cleared up. Tom set Caleb up with a spinning reel to cast for Dolly Varden and he set another one with some meat on bottom. Tom quickly reeled in a giant King Crab […]
Check my Alaska pictures from June 2!
Caleb and I awoke earlier than Chad. We just stayed in our bunks and read. I felt the boat moving (from footsteps) and knew that it wasn’t from Chad – as I could see him sleeping peacefully. What’s up?
Chris Crowe, our neighbor from the Salmon project, opened the cabin […]
Don’t forget my amazing photos from today!
Big bear down! Today I was offered a chance at redemption and seized it. Here is the story.
We awoke to absolutely beautiful weather. Clear skies and in the low 70s. I actually was able to wear shorts and a t-shirt. I was still aware of the fact that I […]
Check our pictures from May 31!
Caleb and I awoke at 7:00am. It gets daylight at about 4:00 am which means there is only about 5-6 hours of dark. We went outside, relieved ourselves, and headed back to our bunks to await Chad’s waking. Chad awoke at about 10:00 am (he is on Alaska time) and […]
