Saving Meghan

The weather outside is…yeah- okay- it’s the same. Cold and snowy and beautiful but pretty much the same as it was when we arrived in Fairbanks in December. For an example, see below: Fortunately this means that reading is the order of the day! And what better way than to get a good book than…

She Speaks

About 18 months ago I was sitting at the reference desk of my library. I was working on something, probably important, when a young woman approached me asking for something quite mundane. A room booking of all things. She needed a few in fact, and when I asked the reason for her booking, she told…

A French Wedding

Happy New Year everybody! Can you believe that it is 2020? Wow- where did that come from?! I recall watching early Sci-Fi flicks as a kid which depicted 2020 as a car-flying-we-all-live-in-the-sky-the-robots-have-taken-over-and-aliens-are-attacking-us world.

There is no doubt that the current theme of vast, pristine and untouched wilderness remains the same. The views are so unbelievable that I feel like I’ve been granted the ultimate gift…

Alcan through BC

So today was our most epic drive yet, a whopping 900kms (I think about that – may be less) through British Columbia, Canada along the Alcan Highway, one of the most scenic and remote routes of our journey yet. Pristine, white, winter wonderland. While we traveled the Black Mountains of South Dakota, all I could…
