    I think if I lived in Alaska, I'd have two things with me at all times, a Smith & Wesson .500 mag pistol, and a 300 Winchester mag rifle.
    Mama mia...

    That's a solid pic, Rick. Love that. Sammy S9 Plus?
    “… the greatest detractor from high performance is fear: fear that you are not prepared, fear that you are in over your head, fear that you are not worthy, and ultimately, fear of failure. If you can eliminate that fear—not through arrogance or just wishing difficulties away, but through hard work and preparation—you will put yourself in an incredibly powerful position to take on the challenges you face" - Pete Carroll.

    That is a beautiful shot! Frame-able!
    I have lost my mind. If found, please give it a snack and return it?

    Yep, S9+. It's got a hell of a camera on it and does pretty well when I remember to wipe the fingerprints off the lense.

    Yeah, Samsung S9 Plus. It's their latest & greatest.

    I hated how big it is at first, but I'm used to it now. I had to upgrade from my S4 Mini because I need to be able to make IP calls - I'm riding on the microwave internet to use my cellphone out here in the middle of nowhere.

    We just take a normal wireless router with us, plug it in and we have a wireless hotspot & our phones work perfectly even though we're many miles from any cell coverage.
