Default Hello from Eagle River Alaska!

I have been reading BHM for many years. I'm a retired Submarine Sailor and I'm fixing to retire from the Alaska Court System in 2014. My Wife and I are planning to move to Arizona at that time to help out her parents. We have 4 adult children, 2 Grandchildren (a third one on the way) and 3 dogs. Half of our backyard is devoted to garden and the other half to the dogs. At one point or another we have raised; Rabbits, Chickens, Pheasant and Quail. We love to Forage in the Wild and of course, Hunting and Fishing provides a lot of our table fare.
Glad to be aboard!

Welcome aboard. I was stationed down the road from you in the 60's. The original Charlie AIRBORNE at Fort Rich. I now live in Kingman AZ. It's a good place to be. Except for the "dark months" AK is a great place. Operation Polar Strike February 8, 1965 we jumped in -54 degrees in the Tanana Valley. I'm STILL cold.
