It feels like summer in Alaska is over...it has been raining in Anchorage so much that it reminds me of the rain in SouthEast Alaska! Scott continues to be on Tananga Island - he is able to call on a satellite phone about every 4-5 days - we are able to talk for about 5 minutes or so. It's tough but we are keeping our eye on the prize - we pray that after lots of hard work this summer we will be able to take a few months off this fall to get started on traveling.
I wish I had a picture to add - I was at a goodbye party for a friend last night and should have taken one but didn't think about bringing the camera. In the meantime - it was good to visit with all of you 5North friends - and make new ones! Tammy - we are looking forward to seeing you in the lower 48!

Scott is in Adak this summer - he is actually headed out to Tanaga which is the island next to Adak but the weather has been so bad the entire crew is sitting in Adak waiting for it to clear. The plan is for him to be back here around the 3rd week of August. Until then I'm in Anchorage working and getting things ready to go. Our plan is to leave Alaska the end of September...

I'm just getting this started - thought it would be a good way for our family and friends who aren't on facebook to keep up with what we are doing - and where we are! We also want to keep track of the fun places we've been so we can remember them later...we are still trying to remember the name of the town in the Outer Banks with the restaurant that made the most incredible deep fried strawberries!
