Hi from the Sandbox in Afghanistan... It's been awhile since my last blog... sorry! I forgot my username/password!!!

I had very busy time off during July/Aug!!! I decided that I was going to cross off another bucket-list item by riding my BMW1200GS to the TOP OF ALASKA! I didn't waste anytime and packed up the bike and headed North to Port Angeles,Wa to beautiful Victoria, BC. I met up with a Harley rider (Ralph) and one of the Racing Green riders (Greg) and we headed North towards the top of Vancouver Island. The ferry ride from Port Hardy to Prince Rupert was stunning! Always one of my favorites!!! Next leg was Alaska Marine Highway Ferry to Juneau to spend some time with Terri and her Alaska Family. Then ferry to Skagway, AK!!! The ride to Fairbanks on the Top of The World Highway. I had a nice visit with Terry in Fairbanks before heading North to the Arctic Circle and Deadhorse at the top of Alaska.... after being woken up by a Mamma Brown Bear and her cub, I did a 180 and headed back to Fairbanks then South along the World Famous Alaska Highway to Port Townsend.

Somewhere during all that riding, I found the time to fly to Texas to see my Son graduate from the Air Force Boot Camp!!! Go Air Force!! haha

Then over to Mississippi for a Family Reunion at my Mother's new home!
What a wonderful vacation! I only wish my Daughter and Grandson could've made it down too. Maybe next time! :)

Here's a few shots of prepping the boat for the long ride NORTH to Gig Harbor, Wa. It took about 5 hours to prep and load her up.

Here's a few shots of my 1985 28 foot Bristol Channel Cutter (BCC) built in Vancouver, BC. She's a full keel fiberglass hull with teak and mahogany wood throughout. She's powered by a Volvo 28hp diesel.

I had a great day learning how to sail my BCC. The learning curve was a little steeper than I had anticipated. The day ended pretty crappy... I couldn't get the engine out of gear and I plowed into the back side of a large powerboat in the slip next to me. OUCH!

This was the first day on board Junessa. I looked in every corner on board and climbed to the top of the mast! I had Chinese food and Corona Beer then feel asleep to some beautiful candle light and music.
