Back again

Thanks to all for the kind words of support. It seems that when you get older, you start losing more friends because of age and sickness. It seems to be hardest when they are close friends or family. Losing my last two friends has started making me wonder about my old Vietnam buddies. I have lost track of them and now I wonder how many of them are still around. When I was living in or near villages in the BUSH, it seems the average loss was 2 or 3 a year for different reasons and I had almost became immune to their deaths. I really don't want to get to that point of not caring. Anyway, I am working on getting back to my normal routine and getting things done. Thanks again.

My Apology

Hi everyone, I would like to apologize for not posting much lately. I have had a few things going on recently and I'm sure all of you will understand. Within the past week and a half, the wife of the owner of the lodge I was caretaker for the past 10 years just passed away from complications of Cancer and last night, I received word that another friend of mine who lives in the BUSH passed away 2 days ago. So, I just haven't been up to posting anything. I promise to get back into action soon. I would like to say.

                      GOOD BYE LIZA
     I will miss all the great times we had at the lodge, you will be missed dearly.

                       GOOD BYE CHUCK
      We didn't spend a whole lot of time together but, we have the love for living the BUSH life. I promise to carry it on.

                            R. I. P.

Winter is coming

I had my first sign of Winter and it is on it's way. Personnally, I can hardly wait. This Winter I plan to have a lot of fun and less work. I took some pictures that might interest you. These are the first sign of Winter.





In case you haven't noticed, I cleared more trees from my property.

Before


After

I really like the openness a lot. I don't have the smother feeling plus, it lets more sun in and I see the sky much better especially at night.
  Here are some night pics I took a few days ago.









I still have to work more on my night shots. This is a shot I took of Denali near my cabin.

I took these shots 2 days ago during the day. I would not have been able to if I hadn't cleared more trees.



I know I haven't been very prompt on blogging for a long time but, this will change very soon. I also promise to get back to more interesting posts. Hope everyone is doing well and getting ready for Winter, as I am. Take care.
