  1. I'm not really sure I know who I am - Part II

    OK, so where was I? Oh yes, writing about Alaskan adventures.

    Alaska permeates your soul. At least it did for me. I immersed myself in everything
    Alaska. But I was never there in all 4 seasons. I'd love a chance to experience
    an entire winter in the 49th state.

  5. Sights from Yellowstone National Park

    I've been kicking around the idea of going back to Yellowstone National Park for the summer. I spent 3 months there in 2012. I'd like to go back for 1 more extended summer stay. The place is amazing. Lots of incredible sights. Tons of wildlife. Cool temperatures all summer long.
