I just always went through with nothing but a pair of jogging shorts...
Enjoy the trip brother, I'll be looking forward to seeing the pics.

The united gate agent says we are heavy from a group of 26 checking 60 bags going to central america after arriving in houston. He offered a guy 400 united flight dollars, lunch, dinner and breakfast to fly out tomorrow. Wouldn't be worth it to spend 24hrs at the airport to me.

He took the deal. Amazing that one person and his bags can make that much differance in weight.

Gorgeous!

So here's the persistent AK question. What does your brother keep handy for that bear encounter possibility?

His first response was his leathermans tool. After the chuckles he said an 870 loaded with slugs then buckshot. Also he carries his ruger blackhawk 44mag. To date bells and saying "hey bear" as he hikes has warned the bears as not to surprise the bears into a threatening response.

This is for Orangello, he took this black bear with a Hoyt 80s vintage 60lb recurved bow some years ago.

We are going to Talkeetna tomorrow for a few days. Running around doing errands before leaving. Ran into this dog named "spaz" with the most incredible eyes. The owner says he is across between a husky and lab.
