    Smile I've Finally Came Home;

    Hello Everyone,

    And I do mean finally, it's been a lone winter at the cabin; December 22 2012, until last night at 9:45 PM when I reached Deshka Landing with 2 sleds in tow full of the things I needed to bring back with me. My return trip was slow but smooth due to about 18" of new snow on the rivers but the load I was hauling made for a 5 hour ride.

    I see that I have many messages in my PM box and hundreds of e-mails in my system as well. As I get acclimated over the next day or so I will be posting and reaching out to all who have messaged me.

    I am very much looking forward to catching up with everything that is being discussed on our forum this year.

    Ard

    For any who may be wondering what I did in all that time I've added 3 entries into the blog here on the forum.

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    It's good to be home JP, I have many pictures to sort that will give you a look at what I've been doing. I'll give you a hint; I may have taken the best Aurora Borealis photos that I've ever shot and I've cut more trees than the average Alaskan lumber jack has in the past 5 weeks

    Welcome back! I was starting to wonder how long the rivers were going to hold out for you. We are in our fourth day above freezing. It's still getting pretty cold at night but at least it's above zero.

    Since it's looking like we might be heading for a thaw, and it's been warmer there than here, I was starting to worry about it a little bit.

    Ard: Good to have you back, it has been getting a little crazy here the last few days. I think people are getting cabin fever and posting political comments, arguing the merits of american made vs overseas and of course that always gets under someones skin and the mud starts flying. Hopefully, people will get out fishing soon and we can get back to talking about fly fishing.

    Hi Jason,

    The first thing I did when I got home was to open my mail!!

    Thank you so much, I'll be in touch.



    Larry,

    Funny thing about cabin fever, after spending 90 days 70 miles off the road system and the grid I didn't notice even a trace of it. The trick is staying busy and if you run out of work put on the snowshoes.............
