Howdy how has everyone been? Back in port for supplies and fuel.
Been as busy as I can be. Not complaining You just never know what you need to do till you have to do it all yourself.

Sorry no pictures I took a few but forgot the camera.
Hard to remember things like that when working 1/2 days. I doesn't matter what half of the day you are working. There are 24 hours in each one. I could use a few more.

So just thought I would check in and say helloto all my old buds.

Ya never know how nice it is to go to a store untill you try the subistance life style.
The only store I will have from now on is the ocean and the garden of course.
Ever see that Alaska show about the Kelchers down Homer Way? sort of what I am doing.

Been doing a little trading with the natives.

Fishing season starts on the 15th.

Skipper Dude - This is first I've seen this thread... sorry bout dat! Would a wished you my best before! Always enjoyed your posts as well as the few back and forth we had. I’m thinken of ya and hopen for your best luck ever!

I too had a couple interesting "get-out-o’-town" excursions in my past that lasted for a fair piece of life each... but... from reading this thread and looking a little into where you and your wife are now I can say my "out back" excursions were light weight in comparison... and, in your 60's too, Heck, I was a nubile pup - back when! LOL

Keep in touch and keep da faith! I’m confident you will do fine with this slice o’ life! You are one adventurous and tough Dude! SD!!

Always felt that was true by your posts...

Great hearing from you SD! You must be looking like Grizzly Adams by now. Hope it's all you hoped it would be.

Thanks Art.

Not that big a deal really I have most of the comforts of home. including running water and hot showers. Run off the wood stove and gravity fed from a couple of 55 gallon drums. Piped in water from a small spring up grade keeps the tanks full and I have fresh water all winter long.

It did freeze up in the trough once or twice but I am working on a way to fix that problem.

Lots of work but I love every minut of it.

Ditto. I have made the run from Seward to Fox Farm Bay in my Bayliner. Lone Tree Point can be pretty good halibut fishing from time to time. I would guess Knight Island, but I am sure if you wanted company you would put a name on it. I know there are a lot of in-holdings and a lodge over there. Planning to drag my metal detector over to Drier Bay and poke around this summer. The hatchery in Sawmill Bay does a great tour, I think they get bored a lot :-)
