More photographs…. the good, bad and ugly of my Alaskan home

July 24, 2018

In 2002 I moved into a home that I would occupy for 14 years.
Below are some photographs some not pretty
but all show the reality of my life
on the edge of nowhere.

Our welcome mat at the driveway entrance


My son and daughter visiting at the cabin

Entering the cabin on a ‘cool’ day


My ‘kitchen’ and

my kitchen in use









My “living room”

The heater that kept me warm at 43 below

Food storage, work shop and electric power

A bed in the loft for me and any visitors

..also in the loft my ‘ham’ radio station and computer

…some people asked about how I get my water and what do I do about snow removal







…or what do I worry about the most

…but in the end I was blessed to live

in a land

touched by the hand of God

    Well, you did do what a lot of folk dream of, and never do it.
    Have you considered a place in Maine?? Seem like a little less
    hateful in winter and “milder” summers–I read of from a gun writer who grew up
    in Maine, his comment was “there two seasons in Maine,winter, and the fourth of July”
    Sounds like your kind of place
    good luck 73 john w8wej
