Welcome to "Our Life"

I did a two day course then an exam to get my Coast Guard license. I got a 96% on the exam. That was pretty cool. Oh yea,,, I was also class valadictorian (and I don't even know how to spell it). I suppose I should mention that there were only two people in the class.
Oh well, it was very informative and a good experience.
I also attempted to apply for a TWIC card but I have to go back in with more information, I got a Physical and took a drug test. I am proud to say I passed all things with flying colors. I studyed for a very long time for the drug test but I aced it. Yea! lol
Myra stayed at Dan and Jeans for the two days and we came back home today. Hans ran the WHOLE way home. 25 miles. He ate and fell asleep and has not even moved other than breathing for 4 hours.
The weather is really warming up and the river travel may become an issue much quicker than expected (normal).
Myra and I have made some plans to go up the Ice Road to the Happy River on Thursday. This will take us into the mountains that we look at out our front windows. I will make sure we take pictures and give you a good update.
Thanks for being here,
Talk to you later.


  1. Congratulations on your course. Sounds like you and Myra have adjusted well to being "off the grid" and out in the wilds. At this time of year do you have to worry about avalanches in your mountains or are they pretty stable? When is the average last hard freeze for your area? How long before you cannot travel the river safely on your snow machines.

    It is all such a grand adventure. You remain at the top of our prayer list. Keep enjoying the beauty of God's creation. Thanks for the update

  2. Glad you passed your class. I know that is something you were looking forward to. Have fun doing guiding.
