Ok Sorry for the multiple posts- but our connection time is limited!


  1. Hi Alex,

    I'm so glad my mom turned me on to your blog! What an awesome experience and it sounds like you are soaking up every minute. We're all living vicariously through you and your classmates! Stay warm!

  2. Well it certainly sounds like you all are having a great time and learning alot! It also sounds like Tyler I. is up to his usual antics -- way to go buddy! Did anyone notice the sign on the pipeline that says "Please do not climb on the pipeline"? Have a great time -- two weeks left!

  3. Keeping informed of your discoveries via this blog is awesome! We feel like we're there with you - but we smell much better. By now, you all smell much better too. The entries you all write are amazing to someone who knows zero about what you're learning. It wets the appetite; can't wait for your next entries. Continue to enjoy your time in Alaska. We do hope you see a bear - from a safe distance. Enjoy!!!

  5. I'm not sure if the photos remind me more of "Survivor" or "I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here"
