I’ve Got the Tools, But Not the Project!

By , August 23, 2019

Michelle and I are off the homestead for a while. We’re traveling in the Lower 48 to visit and help family.

Ironically, we have plenty of internet now that we’ve gotten away from the cruise ships, but we’re not home to write about the homestead! I’ve got the tools, but not the project.

What’s worse, we’ll be gone on the 1oth anniversary of starting this blog. That should be a pretty big deal, and we’ll have the bandwidth to mark it, but perhaps not the material.

Moonlight and Musings

A bunch of little stuff has happened here on the homestead, not enough to fill full posts, so: here’s some random news items, and photos of the moon!

A week ago Saturday, one of the Rainbow Glacier Adventures (RGA) guides who lives and works mostly in Skagway, came over to train with Aly for some specialty tours. Since I consider Rachel, the young woman, a “daughter of the homestead,” I recommended that she come spend the night here, as she’d need to overnight in Haines anyway. While here, she took a couple shots of that night’s full moon.

Rachel is one of RGA’s photo guides, and her photos are awesome! I’ve said it before: it’s one thing to love our homestead, but to see it through other’s eyes (and lenses, as the case may be) is even better!

But, as I said, news:
