Not sure how you can sleep Moosie. That would definately be a hunt of a lifetime for me. Hopefully I will do one within the next 10 years.

It goes without saying, but I want lots of pictures. I don't care if you run out of food, but film or disk space shortages are unacceptable.

Have a blast man.

Hehe...I am packed and ready to go. Checked the list...twice. Pack is ready...weighs 51 lbs w/o rifle, water, and fuel. Rental car is awaiting. Breakfast w/ friends Friday a.m. Swing by ADF&G and pick up my tags (ordered my license online three months ago) while we are out for fuel. Go stand in line at DMV and get my wife's new plates for her truck. What else am I forgetting...NOTHING!!! I am ready to go w/ 68 hours to spare. What to do now...hmmmm. Might go scratch myself...BBL.

Moosie, you've got to relax!

Just kidding.

I've had a blast following your packing dilemma's. If it helps any, I think your well prepared.

Gotta get real, and keep it basic. You've got...

shelter
food
guns/ammo
tags

...everything else is cake.

In my experience, this is the worst time in doing any hunt. The last few hours worrying about what you may have forgotten. The best part (besides deciding basically where and when to hunt) is when you get on the plane, and realize that it's a done deal, and even if you forgot anything, there's nothing you can do about it.

You've got a sattelite phone, and if you need anything important, you can always call your flight service and get it within a day or two. Yep, it will be expensive, but you CAN get whatever you need.

Besides, getting the State of Alaska firearm entry permit was the hardest thing, right?...

THANx B-dub !! I know I should relax.. BUT I was at the Computer last night thiunking about stuff and Reading posts of everyone leaving on these trips (JB Florida to New Mexico, Tbone for Sheep, Ect..)and it hit me like a ton of brick, I leave in 2 days. I made a few posts and jumped up to go check my list and was Sprinting out when Mr's Moosie was coming in the home office and wondering why I wasn't breathing all that good

Moosie, you had beeter get your list out and double check it again to make sure no one took anything out.

You need to relax a little bit. Heck go get yourself a big greasy burger and a shake and you will feel better.

Only a little more time to go and you will be heading out. Good luck to ya.

Just remember, I'm ready. I'm ready! I'm ready! I'm ready!
