I would love to visit Alaska in July or August, but that's as far as I would go. Very well done and I learned a lot about where you live. Have a great TT. :)

I heart this blog, usually laughing out loud while I do it.

Wonderful stuff.

I want to visit but I don't think I could live there, a pen pal in Kodiak keeps me on my toes about life there.
Great list though, and a nice way to keep a sense of humor.

Frost on the walls, huh? Sounds like my last camping trip. Don't ask.

Man, I'm sitting here in my Montreal apartment absolutely freezing with all the heating turned way up. I feel just a few degrees warmer after reading your entry. Thanks for dropping by.

An aunt of mine took a cruise through Alaska, came home and told us she had been to God's country.
Love the one about not shipping outside of the United States.
Thanks for visiting mine.

It's hard to imagine a place so cold, so dark, and so interesting. It's cold season where I live - and it's 80 degrees outside right now. Hard to believe we're on the same planet.
