    Yeah, we didn't get any of it. Must have all gone down the East channel?
    Yes i do, I havn't seen them this winter ,usually they come up and watch the Iditarod They seem a bit people shy, i have offered for 3 years to help him change the oil and tranny fluid in that v-800 he had bought, i have all the stuff to do that and the tricks with that machine from Doo talk,Same with the LX Polaris.. Never showed up. They just replaced it with a VK 540,, Now with the covid even more so, Don't blam them .. no worries, he knows where to find me if he brakes something. I havn't been on the cut tree trail in years, use to go that way with Jim Hightower and see some of the Roberts he is related to them, Lawrence was the Postmaster there and we where both mailman back in the day ,long time now ,I usually come in from over from old Iditarod pop out around Rip Bliss, Boyscout Derf lake trail . looking for winter moose . Didn't even make it that far this year, was headed that way and found a Bull right across from me, on the trail leading to Anderson creek,standing his ground on the trail, a well placed shot from 44.mag, pistol ended that problem, Bad for him good for me :) Thanks for the invite , I have to get some wood in , see how far along i get with that. Cleaning up the woods of the beetle kill pine, been getting some good long time burns with that stuff, seems to be just about right before it rots . As always, your welcome here anytime. No Rum, here, But there is some Jamison, Vodka , few beers, and bottle of the cheap shit guest only Costco brand of Crown . too. :)

    Nancy is the P.M. now, Wow, cool ? Where do they drop mail off this time of year, when it turns soft? Used to Spernak air { if spelled right lol.}
    Dave and Becky, and Mike Dewann, thats who we hang out with, There has been a couple sales of Cabin's and 2newer groups of young people have come in with kids, fun to see. Sh.t , been about 46 yr's now , they are calling me the old guy of the group now LOL. Dave and Becky , they plan on coming out Tue, He finally retired, i been tempting them to spend spring out here too, Got him thinking he been asking alot of questions..about this and that .. He will be our ride home this spring. A well that will be so nice .Dave ,Mike, and the new guy Jason,{ he bought Mike's father law place} and couple people on my side, had that guy with the pickup mounted drill truck come out last year and they drilled 4-5 wells about 50% success rate. At+ 10,000 some $ i passed, I still go over to that side and get water from that orange pipe,about 100 yards up stream from Mike, i am sure u can see from the air, I found that spring 30+ yrs ago and the water just flies out all year long.Water has always been problem, when it gets soft and i can't cross river i stock up best i can, Than i hope for rain, and i also have a hole in the back forty they used 100 yrs ago with a wash tub buried , i can get about 5 gal a day before i stur up the mud ..

    That will be so nice having water , it is one of the biggest pain in the ass i have to get water and wood :) No cell service here, Just the Viasat . We miss Don and Carol, say Hi, for me ..
    Hey Mike, how are we doing ? Still winter up here, made a trip yesterday, and river was good shape, beside the bumps , no water. I think that is about to change , Suppose to be +41 possible chance of rain/snow , and i just seen a Pair of Swans, headed your way 9pm , I don't know where the are headed, I still got 2ft of snow over the top of the burn barrel still. but those birds seem to know :) Regards Jeff

    Hey Jeff, good to hear from you! Still winter here with plenty of snow and no open water, Just saw a forecast that has warm weather tomorrow but a cooling trend for the 20's and single digits for the next week coming up.I heard Swans yesterday but didn't see them. Carl Thiele says there's a place over by the Ivan River that's always open and you can find a bunch of them there this time of year, You should shoot across to the cut tree trail and come and visit some time this week. Do you know Chris and Tracy down river form you?
    Hey Mike, the landing opened today,Couple airboats just passed me 3.53 pm headed your way . So much for the peace and quite ,have to listen to them in the wee hours of the night , The river is running pretty clear last couple days with the cooler weather now and is pretty high .

    Heh Jeff, finally figured out message center myself! Yeah mud buddys and airboats galore. As soon as it warms up and we get more water in the west fork I'm going to escort Eric Johnson and the mammoth thru five fingers with a dozer and a big hoe. Other than the bear hunting yahoos everythog pretty quiet!.
    Hey mike.

    Lee again, I've been thinking about getting a wide track. I don't haul like you do but would like to tow a sled when needed. It would make it easier for me to get out and do a little more in the winter instead of the limited range and hauling ability that my mountain sled has. What would you recommend for me? Have you seen the tundra extremes? Or the tundra sports with the 660 ace? What is your opinion on bear cats? How do those do when the snow gets deep anyway? I still owe ya one so if you need anything let me know!

    Thanks again!
    Had a buddy from way back lived/lives out there. Wondered if it was you? Mike Mason?
