Two Things

One – today marks the 41st anniversary of the day I first set foot in Barrow. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, it was an amazing and wonderful adventure that introduced me to some of the dearest people in my life today. You all know who you are so I don’t have to name names… do I, Sandra?  Greta? Joe? Beverly? Kent? and so many more.

Two – today I start my trip to Cuba. I am going completely unplugged due to the limited and expensive access available for the Internet there. It’s been a long time since I totally unplugged and I’m more than a little nervous about how I’ll handle life without e-mail and Candy Crush. But I’m going to try it. This also means that for the first time since I started this blog, there will not be daily updates from today until next Sunday when I finally arrive back in Anchorage. But I’m betting I’ll have some great tales to tell.

So, until then… don’t let the bastards win while I’m gone!
