Well i've been here since Oct 20 2009 and have settled in nicely. went back to Hope and emptied my place out and the kids are fixing it up. one wall was jsut about totaly gone. darn bugs. but they replaced it and now is good. still more to do but it will take time. I an working at the hotel now till fall when i might move back to the store, not sure yet.






We have been camping and it was great, went to Frenchmans first for 2 nites. the pictures posted above are from frenchmans. June 2010





then we went to Ethel lake with Leo and Lia for 2 nites. went out in Leo's boat and caught some fish.was kinda cold but fun. had a great fish feast for dinner that Leo made. mmmm
Thoses are posted above also.
tanisha will be here in 1 1/2 weeks.. how time has passed. We plan on camping with her also and we got her her own fishing rod etc and will get her a fishing license as she needs one but it is free.
Everyday it seems like im camping. The air is clear and we live in the forest. tis beautiful.

Yukon Quest

This is the Yukon Quest time and they were coming into Carmacks starting last night and now till probably wednesday. The leaders caome into town about 4: am and after a quick check in they headed out. this is the fastest quest yet. I took a few samll clips of a musher and it seems i was a bit too close but it was all ok. would have felt bad if the dogs had tangled up . had no idea that they would be concerned with me. but all ended well. they carried past and made it to the check in point ok.

video video video video

hope all enjoyed my trial and error.. lol it was awsome though.

scenery

video

the cool thing about the Yukon is the distance u can see from jsut about anywhere. Have to excuse the crack in the windshield. Most cars etc have them from the sanding of the roads, but the view is great. U can see for miles but its not flat.

So life here is geting to be normal. no job yet but thats ok. Ill get on someday or my ui will start..as soon as fields gets me my ROE. head office can be slow. Oh well one of these days ill go to the mail box and it will be there.It still seems a bit sureal that im here, it seemed to take so long to get packed and to get here and now... i've been here jsut about 1 month. hard to believe.

we fixed the christmas lites outside yesterday and he is pluging the village truck in at nite time now. as its -22. Have the mail to check today so tahts my outting lol maby see if g i joe is in too lol

smoking mtn

U can see 3 plums of smoke coming from inside the mtn. there's a mine in there that caught on fire many years ago and its still on fire and will continue on for many years. Its illegal to go up there and the gasses are poisnious but of course ppl have to try and some have died. silly ppl.

Nordenschol river

This is the river we go over every day going into the Village but we are at a different place looking at it. The water is going over ice to keep flowing. Its realy great and pretty.Ill add another blog in a bit showing u the mtn thats on fire.. inside.
