    Pic from the main camp looking out across the Tundra. Well I can’t figure out how to turn the pic upright on this phone. Oh, Starmac is correct. You don’t use the bathroom, pour anything out or even spit tobacco juice on the ice. Even if you...

    Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? JOHN 14:9 Our Lord must be repeatedly astounded at us— astounded at how “un-simple” we are. It is our own opinions that make us dense and slow to understand, but when we are...

    What about a bathroom break, DO NOT GET CAUGHT, if you do, you use the spill kit you carry with you and scrape it up. You do not get caught emptying a coffee cup, if you intend to stay long. The outfit Downsouth works for is strict, but does not...

    No trees. But even on the tundra, there are no trees but it does come to life after the thaw. Animals are plenty especially the Caribou. They come up around the camp a lot. But so do the bears. Lots of Fox and other critters too.

    Mary, the water depth between the mainland and our island is shallow. Around 10 feet I’ve been told. The ice is froze to bottom plus many extra layers of ice have been applied.

    Question was asked about a bathroom break. I was only a few minuets away from the camp on the island and maybe 15 minuets away from the main camp. The camps are nice. Better than some motels.

    A few years ago I picked up a college kid from London, hitch hiking to Prudhoe. It was late at night and I picked him up about atigun camp, where he said he had walked out to the river to camp, but there was a lot of bear sign, so he decided to just...

    Down South replied to a thread My USPS story. in Our Town
    I read something from the PO once that warned against clear taped labels not being able to be read by a scanner. But I put clear tape over all of my labels. Never had a problem with the PO or the package arriving where it should.

    My hair has been instantly removing itself for years now but it sprouts back out on other parts of my body that shouldn't have hair.

    Yeah, like most stuff in the movies. It usually has nothing to do with reality. I’m now sitting at the airport in Anchorage waiting on a flight that won’t leave until late this evening. Dang, I wish I had booked an earlier flight out of here. I...

    Riding bikes to Prudhoe is a big thing in the summer, But believe it or not I met one a few years ago in Febuary. I had heard snippets about him and the temp being 29 below at Prudhoe when he left on the radio. I met him at Galbreth and the temps...

    All the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen… 2 CORINTHIANS 1:20 Jesus’ parable of the talents recorded in Matthew 25:14-30 was a warning that it is possible for us to misjudge our capacities. This parable has nothing to do with natural...

    The temp was 4F when we took that pic. It had warmed up quite nicely. But the wind was about 30 knots as you can see my collar blown up against the side of my face and me bracing the wind. It’s been a mild winter so to speak. Still drops to 10-20...

    That road is deigned to handle 250,000 lbs. It cost 5.5 million to build and is only just over three miles long going out to our island, Spy Island.

    Did Christ die to bring you into his covenant? Do you believe? We can never measure up stop trying. Be still, listen, he will hear you. He loved you so much he gave his Son to die for you.

    Well, actually I was the target. The Polar Bears are just coming out of their dens with their little ones and I understand that they are very hungry when they come out. We had about 160 sightings last year.

    I don't think he would want to be caught with a gun on the field at all, at least not if he ever thinks he wants to come back. lol I have a friend that got lost in a blow on an ice road a few years ago, I don't remember if he was heading to...

    It’s called Spoofing. I get calls from my area code and prefix regularly. They go through some type of computer system to spoof the number so that you will think it might be someone who you know or someone close by. The drawback for me is my...
