Someone used the expression the other day WTF, which stands for something entirely different here…Read More

Now that winter approaches and I’m hunkering down in Fairbanks, I’ll have time to do some catch up posts and Valdez was too awesome a destination not to get its own post. Valdez has it all, scenic beauty, an amazing boat…Read More
