I just can't wait. But I guess I have no alternative.

In two weeks I will leave for five weeks of hunting and outdoor recreation in Alaska.

First trip will be ten days of canoeing and fishing on the Tikchik Lakes, with my son. Next will be ten days of moose hunting on the King Salmon River, with three other guys. Then finally I will hunt the Mulchatna herd for ten days.

I have had things arranged since February and have been dreaming, packing and buying gear ever since. I mailed two coolers full of freeze-dried food to the B&B, a couple of weeks ago. I have been packed and ready to walk out the door for a couple of weeks.

Just got back from the range. First group of three I could cover with a quarter. Last group out of a box of 20, the hole was so small that you had to look close to see that it was slightly oval. I'm ready.

Pygmy & Nut:

Thanks for the good wishes. I am taking a digital camera so I can post the pictures easily. I don't have a laptop but maybe I can use a computer at the pilot or B&B. Hope so. It would be nice post pictures and summaries of each hunt each time that I return to Dillingham.

I need to take software to load onto their coputer so that I can retrieve pictures from my camera.

Does anyone know if there is a cyber cafe in Dillingham?

Do they offer public Internet access at the public library?

KC, my math must be bad....the last time I counted 30 days was 4 weeks instaed of 5....but what the hell! We all must be envious. I did a 21 day stint up there about 7 years ago and quiet honestly it was about a week too much for my liking.
Will you be guided on the moose? Are you flying in on the Bou? Best of luck to you and may all your draems pan out! We'll look forward to the pics....

.....Thanks for clearing that up KC...your original post didn't say you omitted travel plans on the 10 day-10 day- 10 day deal. I knew the math wasn't adding up to waht you had written.
Hope you find success in you endeavor!

The weather is looking warmer than worst case scenario. Looks like we can reduce some weight and take fewer sets of long johns.
