We just back got from Alaska a couple of days ago......first trip. Beautiful wonderful place!!! You definitely need to keep it a secret, quit posting those beautiful pictures. If more people knew what it was like there you'd be overrrun with people. That's what is happening in Texas right now....we not only need a big fence on the south, we need a big fence on the north, too! Texans are beginning to speak with a New York accent!!

Grams it's the white squarish bucket (1 of 2) outside the hot tube.
It contains a bottle (looks like a 1/2 gallon of wild turkey)

LOL girl...does look enticing doesn't it...maybe park a chair outside the tub....

My question is how normal and regular are these types of activity, or does it depend on the weather, as I have certainly not seen this, (nor the opportunity in my mind to do any of this dressed like this here) where I am...

GrammasC...you have the best pictures...Kudos to you if I could...

Jersey?? What liquid sustenance?? What buckets??
The law pretty much screwed the evidence up pretty badly..

anyway, we have that sort of a hot tub out back. It used to be on the beach when it was more secluded down there.

I am only about a four hour ferry ride from where Gramma lives so sometime this summer I may have to go and investigate the mysterious liquids that you guys are talking about.

Way back before the Prince was born we were out in the hot tub every night almost. I recall being out there in the snow and other sorts of weather.

I wish I was closer...You just might have to go on a 'recon mission' and check that out! It so looks like a great time for a weekend...well week maybe..., but I would not get anything else done... I thinks looks like solitude, time out with friends and totally good time...Met...you are such a lucky 'B' to be that close to her...

Not to worry Gayle, them yuppies'll all head for Anchorage and they'll think they're living the Alaska experience. They can't take the isolation, lack of economy and weather in Southeast. Not a one 'o' them can run a chainsaw.

Hey Met! You come on up here anytime! There's always somethin' going on. I have my cute little floathouse on the beach you can stay in. Got 3 teenage grandsons coming in a week but when they leave you should come up! I bet we could co-author some pretty good stories for these guys.



Grannysroost, people are running up the river daily in summer. In fact I'm headed up in a couple days to gather with friends for our annual "fish camp". We'll set nets for king and sockeye salmon, gather in the cabins on the lower end (the part the feds didn't get hold of) of the river. We take along our canners, & cookers, we built a smokehouse up there years ago, and we all smoke and can our year's supply of salmon together. It's just a blast, full of kids, dogs, parents & grands, - many of the same ones in the twin lakes crowd. At the end of the work day we'll pile in the boats and run to the tubs for a hot soak, swing by the glacier for ice for the coolers and hightail it back to the cabin locked away from the bugs.

We'll run to the tubs from town any time it tickles our fancy, depending on the tide. There's a major delta between the mouth of the river and Town, many a boat has been stuck on the flats on an outgoing tide.

Granny, you could always catch the ferry in Whittier...

that floathouse looks lovely....it's been years since I've lived on one. You haven't really slept until you've slept in a floathouse...I'm not sure why that is.
