General Update

By , September 19, 2019

Not much to report on the homestead recently, which is good; the combination of tour ships and wet weather, a potent combination according to my knowledgeable source in these matters (see The Mysteries of Cellular Internet Explained) has reduced our internet time considerably. For instance, it took me several days to successfully upload the September Monthly Movie recently.

Oddly, and somewhat pleasantly, we’ve alternated rainy days and sunny days over last weekend. Michelle’s and Aly’s end-of-season staff party for Rainbow Glacier Adventures fell on a sunny day; since it included a chartered boat to Skagway, that turned out quite nice!

Other than that, I’ve been busy inside with a book contract through my “micro-publishing” company, Yeldagalga Publications, LLC. Outside, we’re in the middle of the Tier II Subsistence Moose Hunt (nothing worthwhile to report there), cutting and hauling this winter’s firewood, and hunting mushrooms. Our favorites, the king boletes, are sprouting all over the forest. We almost have more than we can eat right now—that’s what I call good trouble!

The tour season continues to wind down, ending sometime in early October. Hopefully, by then enough will be happening around here to report more regularly, as we regain internet connectivity.
