Deep Freeze – January 15-18, 2011 (Trip 25)

Posted by Justin in Building, Each Trip, Full Account

The roof is roughly 75% complete!

This trip was unlike all others to date. I started off for Trapper Creek around 10 a.m., Saturday morning, after inflating all the truck tires. In Trapper my first order of business was to pick up items that were still stored on a friend’s property. The items consisted of a one-place trailer that would make […]

Sunny Dee (Trip 13)

Dee

The day after Scott and I hauled windows out, it was another beautifully sunny day. I still had George’s old snowmachine, and knew quite well that a trip out to the cabin would be a breeze. I was also interested to show Dee how fast we could get out there in the winter, and thought […]

The Neighbors are Awesome! (Trip 10)

Breakfast at the Berg Hunting Camp with my new neighbors

This had to be the most eventful trip to the property I’ve had to date. I arrived to the parking lot late on September 17 after picking up lumber from Spenard Builder Supply, unloading and loading at my boss’s brother’s place in Trapper Creek, loading up ATV and getting fuel. Then, as usual, I had […]

Staged for Construction (Trip 6)

I

It was finally spring, and I had work on my mind. No, not magazine work and writing, nor web design or anything I do to make a buck; I’m talking about construction. I was itching for that first strike of my new hammer to a nail, feeling my saw rip through some lumber and watching […]

Winter Weather Camping & Snowshoe Safari (Trip 4)

Chris practicing predator calls early in the trip

On fairly short notice, my friend Chris and I decided to do a little winter snowshoeing and camping out on the property. Sure, we really could have gone anywhere, but to what purpose? In heading out to the property, we faced the challenge of navigating a few miles of deep snow and some fairly rugged […]

Alone in the Snow (Trip 3)

Posted by Justin in Each Trip, Full Account

Winter Morning Moon

Winter had hit, full blast, and the Arctic chill had found it’s way into the southern most areas of Alaska and beyond. Still without my own machinery, a snowmachine, ATV or otherwise, to access the property, I decided to take my new cross-country skis for a spin. As usual, there was plenty to learn from […]

The Polish Alaskan

Posted by Justin in More Adventures in Alaska

I met Gosia at the Anchorage International Hostel in Downtown Anchorage. On her way home to Poland, she had visited Alaska on a whim, and didn’t have a clear plan yet what she’d be doing. Since I was already studying the region and writing articles about what to do and where to go in this […]
