There is a small

Funny story:

There is a small town nearby called Hoonah.  They have a church group that comes to Juneau every month or so and collects donations.  They turn around and give/sell at a small retail shop in town.   I've donated some shirts etc quite a few times.  I happened to be over there last summer for a day and saw TWO of my old michigan t-shirts being worn there!

Me to wife: "Hey dear, check out this fella rocking the 1998 rose bowl tee."

You'll most likely be flying into my town (Juneau) and jumping a float plane (Maize and Blue colored Alaska Seaplanes maybe?) to Angoon.  July should be plenty of daylight (not sunlight haha) and decent halibut fishing.  Keep an eye on salmon regulations.  They're restricting the amount of kings we're allow to catch until late june. After that, the regs will be re-evaluated.  Between commercial guys, sport fisherman, tourists, charter guys, etc.. they don't want to let the reproduction numbers get too low.

 

Bring your camera!  I _think_ you might have basic cell service there too. Voice/text, but probably no data.

Once you go fishing in Alaska, fishing in Michigan is,,, pretty mellow.

Catching a big halibut or 30lb king salmon in the ocean is pretty amazing. Sitting in the boat with the lines out while watching whales, eagles, sea lions, etc is better therapy than anyone could ever pay for. 

I know the great lakes can be dangerous, but the dangers around here are for real. One screw up or really poor luck and you're in the newspaper for bad reasons. 

If you prefer to fish the rivers, stay alert because there's a good chance there might be something just around the corner that's higher on the food chain than you.  Our neighborhood just had a dog killed by a wolf this week (on a popular hiking trail)

I do miss saginaw bay and being able to jump out of the boat on a hot day and just swimming around...

I can get a good look at a T-bone by sticking my head up a bull's ass, but I'd rather take a butcher's word for it.

06/15/2017 - 1:18pm I have my own list, but...

I met Sarah Palin at a Governor open house in Alaska once.  My dad was a fan and wanted her autograph.  I wrote up this little paper with my dads name on it that said, "Thank you for your support" or something and was going to have her sign it.

I got there early so I wouldn't have to stand in line very long. (I didn't want to be there anyway) It had been raining all day so I put this letter in a manila type envelope so it wouldn't get wet.

So here I am, the first guy in line, standing in the rain.  I have my rain jacket on and I have this envelope tucked inside to keep it dry.

They open the doors for the public and I say hello to the greeters and approach Palin.  As I step inside, I unzip my jacket and pull this stupid envelope out to have her sign this paper.  Right away 2 huge security guys jump right in front of me and push me back towards the door.  I'm like... wtf.

They ask me what's in the envelope.  I told them. They looked.  Sarah laughed and signed.

I wasn't aware until later, but there was something like 5 anthrax/cyanide type envelopes sent that day to the white house and other governors.

04/20/2017 - 8:02pm haha.. that was my post!

Update:  That lady was crazy as hell and got fired after a ton of personal drama from a soon to be ex-husband invading her work time.

 

Also: I did find the toner cartridge.

10/27/2016 - 7:58pm my first thought too

"Like warm apple pie"

03/21/2016 - 3:31pm heh

Nice to see another AK person here.   I think he'd cooperate in the search and rescue only to find you and rip your face off.

11/23/2015 - 2:30pm Well said.

The first time my wife and I went to the hospital to deliver a baby, we came home empty handed.  It hurt like hell and still does.   I'm sure they'll remember every second they had with him.

My youngest (1) was sick and throwing up all weekend.  At around 4am on Sunday, my wife and I were cleaning up another round of bed sheets for the washing machine and she mentioned how much it sucked and how she was tired.  I was tired too.   I sat there on the bedroom floor for a minute and thought about this story again, and how some parents would give anything to only have our "problem".  

RIP Kiddo.

10/28/2015 - 8:08pm same feeling

Too much star treatment,,,

Officials have too much control over the game results now..

I kind of miss 80's and 90's NBA..

 

10/17/2015 - 12:25am goooooooooo

blueeeee!

10/16/2015 - 2:49pm haha...

stole mine... 

10/16/2015 - 2:29pm I was at the 2002 ass kicking (49-3)

UM goes 3 and out in the first posession.  Sparty marches down and kicks a field goal. One sparty fan stands up behind us screaming "It's gonna be like this ALL DAY folks." Every time UM scored after that 30+ people would yell "ALL DAY" back to him.  It wasn't a thriller, more like a fight you think should really be stopped,,, but,, not,,quite,,yet.

05/29/2015 - 6:13pm oooooh

Had to log in to +1 you.  Thank you.  Good pick.

It was designed by a 13 year old.

There is even a song to go with it.

Eight stars of gold on a field of blue -
Alaska's flag. May it mean to you
The blue of the sea, the evening sky,
The mountain lakes, and the flow'rs nearby;
The gold of the early sourdough's dreams,
The precious gold of the hills and streams;
The brilliant stars in the northern sky,
The "Bear" - the "Dipper" - and, shining high,
The great North Star with its steady light,
Over land and sea a beacon bright.
Alaska's flag - to Alaskans dear,
The simple flag of a last frontier.

They said, "Tommy’s regular cheeseburger could likely compete for best in a lot of other, bigger states as well."

Well Alaska IS the biggest state.  I kinda stopped reading after that.

Alaska is better known for seafood anway.

12/28/2014 - 4:41pm anyone

with a link for those on the go today?

12/16/2014 - 8:03pm But

Would you really want Jay Cutler as your QB?

10/11/2014 - 10:32pm yayayaya

gardner.. tough mofo.

09/02/2014 - 7:00pm Yeah,

Love this idea...  Throw some hockey headers in there and maybe a little baseball/softball for a few weeks too!

09/02/2014 - 6:58pm Well,

I heard there were some new pictures of Kate Upton floating around that you might work into the montage...

08/30/2014 - 3:54pm yay..

winner winner chicken dinner..

08/30/2014 - 1:33am Anyone need help parking cars on gameday?

Pryor just got cut by the seahawks and might be available for the right price.

08/30/2014 - 12:05am its just that.

The real deal.

04/23/2014 - 4:50pm well stated

Well put.

Mine was a one time thing though.  I said something that I dare not repeat I guess, mostly as a joke...  I came back to the site an hour later and had  - 20000000 something points.

I suppose I could make a new name and stuff and come back and build up points, but.. I don't want to be that guy.

 

04/23/2014 - 2:06pm here is how it works

You say one thing, even as a dumb joke, get piled on, and then they banish you for... forever I guess.

So make sure that anything you say falls in line with the way everyone else thinks here, and could never be interpreted as "some guy on the internet said something I don't like or didn't find funny in the same way he did" and you'll be a-ok.

 

04/14/2014 - 8:26pm agreed.

Good luck Nik.  At least Joe D won't be able to pass you up!

is a 16 year old beagle that can hardly jump up on the couch anymore.

She's smart and patient, but won't really take risks anymore. (like wandering waaaay ahead of me on the trails)

so maybe she's like...   Coach Carr?

 

03/03/2014 - 12:38pm getting stronger at the right time of the year

I'm sure you guys have noted somewhere, but it really stuck out to me vs Minnesota how JB stuck with Spike down the stretch. Spike just makes the right decisions in the heat of the moment.  It's nice to see him have that kind of trust from the boss.

There's more to life than being really really REALLY ridiculously good looking.

any links to watch?

12/02/2013 - 7:52pm i used to agree

I played in a softball tourney in sitka alaska this year on their new field turf.  It was amazing.

Playing SS, every hop went where I was expecting it to (even when it rained) and when I slid on my belly to catch one, it felt awesome...

Now,,, if a MLB team wanted to do it?  no thanks.. real dirt, real grass, real beer please.

08/26/2013 - 7:23pm I'm gonna go the other way on this..

1995 pigskin classic. It was probably 110 degrees in the north endzone and we stared into the sun the whole day. Amazing day, perfect ending, and a sunburn on only one side of my face that lasted a week.

Then... I think 2001 UM/Ohio. Sweatervest and his promise.. It rained on that one. It may have been just the loss though.

07/24/2013 - 8:27pm heh

I laughed watching espn the other day,,, some talking head was asked how Ohio was going to miss Hyde after being dismissed for hitting a woman...  His reponse, "They'll miss his PHYSICALITY."

I think it was Palmer or something...

05/23/2013 - 7:30pm can't wait

I was passing through ORD last weekend after the wings won game 2 to tie the series...  Wow,,, there were some seriously pissed chicago fans in the bar at the airport.  I can't imagine those same folks after the wings went up on monday night.

Go wings! 

04/26/2013 - 2:14pm yuck

We're flying back to michigan next week to visit my family (in the thumb). My Dad has been sending pictures of flooded fields and roads everywhere.  Sounds like a crummy spring there  so far.  We were hoping to go to a tigers game while we were there.  I miss sitting in the warm sun with a beer and watching a lazy 9 innings..

04/26/2013 - 1:39pm beer sounds good

I'm up here in alaska..  it was spring time until last night.  We just got 4 inches of snow.  How's that for a posbang killer...

04/12/2013 - 5:44pm Like a gooooooooooood

Like a gooooooooooood Neighbor............................

03/01/2013 - 6:14pm oh

Here is a picture of Lennay Kekua then..........

02/05/2013 - 11:25pm Hail hail!

Beat ohio! Happy b-day coach!

11/20/2012 - 8:31pm hmmm

I wouldn't put it past DB to pull something crazy with our own uniforms for this one..  *Poof* you didn't see this one coming...

11/06/2012 - 7:26pm thanks for the info

The way I'm reading that is that there are 2 sessions on the 21st.  Session One starts at noon and session two starts at 6pm.  Wouldn't there be 2 games in session one and 2 games in session 2 on the 21st?

Then session 3 starts at 6pm on the 23rd.  Wouldn't there be 2 games in this session also?

So if i bought all 3 sessions I could see 6 games?  1 game per session just doesn't seem right, but maybe I'm incorrect.

11/06/2012 - 7:06pm ncaa tickets in auburn hills

Hey there,,  question for all.  I was interested in buying a couple NCAA tourney tickets (auburn hills) for my father and I for a Christmas gift.  Can anyone tell me how the ticketing thing works as it relates to the sessions?  Do I buy a ticket for the day and hang out all day?  Do i have to buy tickets for each game that day?  I think it'd be cool for us to hang out all day and just watch game after game if that's possible.  I think they sell them in sessions, but I couldn't find that anywhere.

Extra cool bonus if Michigan was there, but Dad and I have always wanted to attend.  I guess it's a bucket list kinda thing.

Thanks for any info.

10/26/2012 - 3:24pm hmm

Don't play anyone with the, "please I hope I don't get hurt, I'll just play a little bit and take it easy" attitude.  Just go out there and do your thing.

10/24/2012 - 7:10pm prediction:

Verlander gets an RBI tonight,,Rookie Garcia puts one in the cove,, and the Tigers win 6-2

08/29/2012 - 3:07pm most annoying?

Probably either that "buck-eye-guy" or the "big nut" guy..

Equally annoying.

07/02/2012 - 6:31pm heh

Vegas had "tails" at 5-1?
