Yesterday, I received news that my friend and former employer passed away due to a Hemorrogic Stroke. Kirk is the type of person who is a true Alaskan and outdoor man. We had many, many good and fun times. He is an iconic figure in the Alaska bush pilot world and ran a first class lodge. We spent many days and nights talking about Alaska and our experiences. I will miss him very much.
Hi folks, well,, not a whole lot going on. The weather has been rainy and the last couple of days, pretty sunny and warm. Been working on a new project and just finished it. I built a small couch or as some of you say, love seat. I call it a "no love seat, lol".
The end result, I just need to get a cover for the foam cushions.
I bought this recliner at Value village for $20.
I changed the cabin around for the last time, got it the way I want it now.
I moved my batteries and inverter out to the arctic entry.
I finished stocking my pantry.
Saturday, yesterday, I drove to Anchorage 85 miles away and bought this 1993 Ford Ranger extended cab for $750.
It runs great, has 220,000 and the tires have lots of tread and a 4 cyl. engine. Yes, I still have my car. That's pretty much it for now. Hope to have another post soon. Take care
Happy 4th to all of. Hope you are enjoying it with family and friends. I myself am just sitting back and taking it easy. Not much going on, Randy is still in the dumps but, I'm sure he will recover. I have been working on a project, I am building gates to close off my driveway hopefully to prevent theft.
I am building them from pallets I got free from Lowes. I've noticed new flowers growing in my front yard.
I also noticed the first Fireweed.
I've made acouple of purchases. A new generator, a Generac IQ2000. The guy I bought it from paid little over $800 for it and sold it to me for $450. He decided he needed a bigger one.
It works just as well as my Honda EU2000i except, it is quieter, has a fuel gage, tells you how much running time is left and has 3 speeds, eco, standard and Turbo.
I also bought a post hole digger for a $100, it is 3 months old. I can change the bit and use it to drill through the ice.
I haven't been doing to much of anything else because it's been raining here for ever it seems like. I do miss going out to the cabin, Randy said he would ask around to find me an affordable pilot un til he is back in the seat again. He is such a good friend.
Well, that's it for now, will try for a more interesting blog soon. Take care
