  1. Thank you for sharing. Sounds like a great week ahead for ya'll.


  2. Will have to copycat quite a few of them :)

    Oh, to answer your question (at my blog)...I live close to not very close to Kodiak. My Dh handles some stuff (basically ordering supplies) for there though (at least I think they are one of the places he deals with). But neither of us have ever been there personally.

    People that have been stationed there that we have talked to have always seemed to really like it there, so I am sure you will love to visit. It is really beautiful country all around Alaska, and I have seen some beautiful pictures from down there. I believe Kodiak is one of the places known for having a place to watch the bears catch know, the shots were the fish practically jumps into the bears mouth. LOL

    We are due to be here for probably at least 4 years, so we hope to make it down there at least once or twice during the time here. If you look at a map of Alaska, things will seem close to each other until you see that maybe 1/4 inch is about 100 or 200 miles away, haha. This year we plan to go see Mt. McKinley (aka Denali)....that is near Fairbanks.....close to the center of the state I suppose.

    Well, talk to you later (and glad I found your blog too)!!
