This is a recent picture of me due to lack of sleep.

The fun never ends. Today I went down to the Maritime Expo in Seattle with two commercial fisherman that I work with. Basically a trade show for those that work the waters of the Puget Sound. I just putzed around and ate chocolate (from the vendors' booths). I've heard almost 10% of Bellingham's economy is driven by myriad occupations related to the sea. It was neat though. Really neat. And to ride a bike through the deserted streets of a Pacific seaside town with a light fog and slight breeze at five thirty in the morning with all the sounds and smells of the sea is added to the pile of fond memories.

But the coolest part is that I might be going to Alaska this summer for two weeks for the season up there. The town is 250 people and a few hundred miles up the Yukon River. I've been to all of the 48 lower states, so Alaska will definitely be a trip. And to be flown in on a float plane, as the only road is the river.
