As mentioned above, we like to row out in the wilds of Southeast Alaska. Here we are out in Icy Straits, just in front of Glacier Bay. Whales, seals, otters, sea lions, various birds abound. We worry very much about the incessant clear cutting which is highly subsidized by the Federal Government and Indian Corporations here. More on this later when I get the page rolling.


It's pouring down rain, the wind has come up and you've got a 6 foot sea on top of a 8 foot swell following you, and with maybe a 20 foot tide which has turned against you because you're late, and you can't quite tell whether that land mass off to starboard is your turning point or not... well, you've just got to be philosophical about it. I always find Nietzsche a source of comfort...

Want to try to help make sure there are some trees left in Alaska if and when you ever do decide to visit? Here's the place to start. Give 'em some help.
