    “… 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.

    Thanks for the OP. Spent several years with the Charlie Manchus at Fort Wainwright. Bears were everywhere. My oldest daughter and I one morning at 2AM watched the beavers swimming about and working on their dam. We used manchu skis and ahkios in those days before the motorized sleds were introduced. A wonder world.

    Thanks, again.

    I too thoroughly enjoyed my time with Mr. and Mrs. D. Nipple.

    As always, your photos are fan-freakin’-tastic.

    You are fan-freakin'-tastic.


    More wildlife - I caught a pic of these Northeastern Lovebirds hanging out up there.

    It sure was a joy having all you guys up here. Top notch people - you couldn't ask for a greater bunch.

    All except breaking Abbey, it was glorious.

    I just shut down the cabin yesterday, definitely the last run of the season with the boat. The river is down to a trickle and I ran the boat hard to stay above the gravel & rocks... we never touched, but it was dicey.

    Took this yesterday as we were leaving :

    Abbey is healing nicely, and the surgery scar is really not bad at all. I’d do it all over again.
