Goatboy, we're dealing with a Deadhead, remember?

Me like cannibalized stump.

How come no fishing pictures?

Beautiful pictures. Glad to hear the whole family got together. A few place names would be nice for the less travelled, less informed crowd.

Survival! Thanks for sharing the land of cold & damp. I can almost hear the whine of mosquitos and the snarls of hidden bears.

I'm going to venture out into the heat now, with a smile on my sweaty old-face.

This was certainly different: It's the hippie of Trip Reports, it is so laid-back.

Lovin' it, Nature. Yeah.

And no smelly old fish and no smelly old butt shots; just an Alaska-size love-in.

You go, Eskimo!
