    Default Fishapalooza and Kenai Peninsula pictures...

    I just put some pics together from our mid Sept trip on the Kenai. Fishapalooza was a blast and my wife and I were most impressed with the new friends we made. The first half is assorted pics from the Kenai Peninsula, namely the areas near Homer and Seward. The last half of the slideshow is from our rafting and flyfishing on the Upper Kenai. Lovely river and we will surely be going back. Click on the link below...

    Default Y'all

    Not bad for a Cannuck, Eh?

    "Y'all, formerly spelled "You-all'", is a contraction of the phrase "you all", and is pronounced as one syllable. It is used as a plural second-person pronoun. Commonly believed to have originated in the Southern United States."


    "The only usage of eh? that is exclusive to Canada, according to the Canadian Oxford Dictionary, is for "ascertaining the comprehension, continued interest, agreement, etc., of the person or persons addressed" as in, "It's four kilometres away, eh, so I have to go by bike." In that case, eh? is used to confirm the attention of the listener and to invite a supportive noise such as "Mm" or "Oh" or "Okay". It essentially is an interjection meaning, "I'm checking to see you're listening so I can continue."

    Question some notice

    Sounds good Dan. Give me some advance notice; I'd like you and your wife to meet my better half this time; you'd get along great. And like I said when you were here; let me know what you need locally here that might help on your next trip; we've got lots of this and that here.

    Any idea what your next trip here is going to go do? Probably lots of ideas, eh?

    Thumbs up recognizable places

    Yeah, I too recognized so many places that I've been in your pictures Dan. One difference though is that your pictures of those spots are better than my pictures! Thanks so much for sharing yours!

    Not sure man, depends on breaks in contracts with work. For that reason I have something planned from Chena in Feb to NW Alaska in late Sept with about six float trip possibilities in the middle. The key for me is being flexible

    I for sure will let you know well ahead of time as I would love to meet up with you and a few others while up. Likely a trip in summer and fall if nothing else. May throw in an extra long weekend somewhere just for shets and giggles. You will know either way. It sure was a pleasure meeting you and you represent your state well. Should I be in NC in March, I will bring the smoker to you for your get together. This contract ends Jan 1st so I am still unsure where I will be come March.

    Glad you guys liked the pics. It is hard to take a bad picture in a place as beautiful as the Kenai.

    Default next trip to Alaska

    Definitely do let me know when you're headed back up. Maybe if you have a layover in the Anchorage area one evening I could introduce you the my better half; you two would like her and vice versa.

    We could head out to dinner, or if I make one of my best recipes I might not be too embarrassed - its tough to cook for a good cook - but I do make a rack of lamb that is better than any I've had at a restaurant, and I'm presently attempting to perfect a french onion soup too.

    Though I'd like to see you in March I'd also wish you the best, for another contract kicking in for ya. Thanks for thinking of me re: my March trip to NC.

    Familyman,

    Everything sounds great with dinner and I will keep you informed about March. I would love to be in a position to help you out and visit a bit at the same time.


    Sage,

    I use a Canon 40D with Canon 10-22, 24-105, 100-400, and 100 f/2.8 lenses. Hoya HD circular polarizer helps alot on the landscape images. Basic postprocessing done in Photoshop Elements 6.0.

    Sounds good Dan. Though after eating your cooking I'm a little nervous about cooking for you... Really good cooks are the toughest to cook for. I'd better practice up a few more recipes.... I'm likely to fall back on one or two I have that are way above par... currently rack of lamb is my finest main course recipe.

    Such a small world. You're what? 4000 miles away? And you've golfed on the course my Mom lives on. Who'd've thunk?

    It'd be great to see you this March there if you're there then. In case you're not, I'm working on a Pernil recipe that I'll share with you when its close enough to working; I'm 90% there now. Pernil is a pork shoulder/butt (oops, can I say butt here?) done puerto-rican style and can be done in an oven, though after I work it out the very next one will happen in my smoker, which of course is always preferable for large pork pieces. Stay tuned on this one.

    And you two would get along famously with my better half. Ask Vince or King; she's the one of the family with manners, wit, social graces.... I could go on... Well at least I cook and can make a computer do my bidding way better than her!

    P.S. I'm thinking next 'palooza to bring my smoker down and do a pork shoulder/butt there; it would feed everyone more than one meal.

    Au contraire my humble friend, it is I who should be nervous cooking for you

    .
    No doubt man. Took a golf lesson there in June and will be going back for sure as the pro really knew his stuff. I lived across the street for almost two years while attending Campbell University. Stole a trash can full of range balls (later returned) from the driving range as part of hell month while a frat pledge. I even got some ... well, you know, on the course one night.

    Fond memories I think

    After meeting you I have a hard time swallowing that one, but we will look forward to meeting her nonetheless.
