  1. It's sooo much warmer. Well, we've had a cold snap this week, but other than that, I've only been wearing a windbreaker to work in the mornings. Ultimately, we're just psyched to be out of AK.
  2. Thanks for the replies.
  3. What a rough year 2011 was! I'm so glad it's over & 2012 is now upon us. Had a lot of changes take place last year, some good, most bad though. Last spring my wife was diagnosed with lupus. We still don't have a definitive diagnosis, or a treatment plan, but, we have since moved out of Alaska and now reside in the Virginia Beach area (interested in meetups here!). The Coast Guard Special Needs Program concluded that there was not adequate medical care available to my wife, so we were transferred early. Most of the bad things that happened revolved around this, and how my superiors acted af
  4. http://morgsatlarge.wordpress.com/2011/03/13/why-i-am-not-worried-about-japans-nuclear-reactors/ Pretty good explanation of what is going on with the Nuke Plants. I'm no phd, but it makes sense to me. Not sure of the accurateness either.
  5. I'm thinking about volunteering to go over as a safety officer. One of the cool things about being in the USCG. With my response history I'm hoping I can go. Already asked permission from the wife. She gave me the ok, now gotta find out if my command would let me go.
  6. I think 'Mother Nature' wanted me to get started with a bang. About 2' of snow got dumped on us over the last 2 days. This morning it turned to rain . Well about 4' of snow sluffed off the roof today. My thinking is that about 1500lbs of wet snow would be easier to get rid of than solid ice. So I started removing it with the shovel. What a workout! I'm about halfway done.

  8. How tight are you tying them? My thinking is that they should be tight enough to give support, but not so tight as to constrict your foot's natural movement in spreading out a bit on impact with the ground. I have wide feet, & normally buy my shoes an extra size wider to allow for that.
  9. I'm getting a .30-06. Haven't picked out a scope yet though.
  10. Welcome aboard. Seems like yo're in the right place. Motivation is always so hard to come by sometimes Most days, I think about working out, then think about all the things around the house that need to be done too. It's a constant battle for me.
  11. Thanks. In Louisiana they called themselves the sportsman's paradise, so far, I'm thinking that Alaska is giving that title a run for it's money.
  12. Hopefully I will be killing them myself. Living in Alaska, I wouldn't be able to live with myself if I didn't try these things. Only have 3 years to get out & see this beautiful state.
  13. What to do with all that left over gumbo? Make some gumbo while gearing up for the Saints game tonight. Ok, to make things easier, gumbo consists of whatever you wanna put in it, so long as you have celery, bell pepper, & onion. Lots of those. Sausage is normally a staple as well. Start with a good dark brown roux. This is just flour & butter of equal parts. I normally do 1 1/2 cups of each. Cook over medium heat stirring constantly. I mean stirring the hell out of it. When you think it's burnt, keep going just a bit longer. I boiled my bird to get the meat off the bones, &
  14. Stalking info: See my sig, but I'm gefox4 on google, & I started a tumblr account for use with a new twitter account. Mainly for creative writing/humor. Diary of a Snow Shoveler The Twitter id is Diary of a Snow Shoveler
