Hope this isn't that kid with the canoe....

I'm sure the detail will surface with this kid learning a HARD lesson.

I am wondering if Yukontrapper can chime in if knows anyone that might of grew a tropical plan there in Galena and got flooded and washed down here since we have a banana tree growing in the house here.

it does have tentacles or roots not sure what to call them.

not sure weather to hatch it or take the potato peeler out and make soup smile



No idea yukonjeff, Pretty cool looking though. Maybe try some with some deepfried burbot! As for the flood we had. Two house's are finished in the family and 3 more to go. I since resigned from my full time job so i got some big plans this coming trapping season.

And glad things are somewhat getting back to normal for you all there and hope your traps are full this winter.

Au contraire. Had breakfast with W17 and OB yesterday (Tuesday) morning!

They have been on a road trip/adventure. I'll let him relate the tale when he gets back.

Does that translate into " I got a flat tire and forgot to put in the spare."?

Nope. That scenario would be TAME compared to this adventure....

Oh, I know what happened!!

White17 & Ol'Blister went out into the deep woods of Alaska in search of the rare, elusive, mighty BIRCH BURL!! After a long flight , they landed on a remote abandoned airstrip. Ol' Blister unloaded the old DeHavilland in record speed! White17 set up his spotting scope scanning the hillside for Burls, while Ol' Blister set about breaking a trail through the thick woods. "

Break for commercial !!

Back from commercial ....


After white17 finished off his Wendy's Triple Deluxe Burger with all the fixings, he decided to take a well needed rest from working the Spotting Scope. White17 was sound asleep in his Adirondack chair, when he was suddenly woken up by the sound of Ol'Blister charging through the woods. "What happened?" Said white17. Ol'Blister half out of breath said " Can you skin Grizz?" All of a sudden, there was a tremendous roar as a huge Grizzly Bear came running down the newly cleared trail...

Break for commercial....

That is a pretty good read. We can all learn something from this.

Amazing landing. One thing I take from this story:

And he raved about the "absolutely mind-boggling" DeLorme inReach SE that let him text a quick message -- "ENGINE FAILURE. ALL OK" -- and then tracked his movements, sending geographic points to his wife, Debbie, as she monitored his progress across the tundra.


The DeLorme is like the Spot only it can hook up with your cell phone and you text both ways. It uses Iridium satellite as opposed to the Spot which uses Global Star and does not have two way text. I am going to get one of these for safety.

Been a couple of them in the last week that didn't come out so well.
W17, did you know the folks in the plane that crashed just southeast of McGrath yesterday? One dead, one critical.
