About This Site

I started this site in July 1997 and at the time it was to have a presence on the internet. It was a place for me to share pictures and some links to some fun and entertaining web sites. I also had some links to computer manufacturers web sites and knowledgebase's. Over time as technology advanced I had a page that was maintained with music in wav format. I do not maintain or add new music since the crackdown of the music industry of illegally distributed music.

So, my site has become mostly a site of the pictures and video I have taken over the years. I want to be able to share the different places with people who visit my site and let them see. It is my hopes my site is enjoyed and if it adds motivation to see some of the places, it will be an added bonus. I hope you enjoy viewing my site.

Since the Summer 2009, the content of my site has had a theme of my trips to, and the video I have taken while in Alaska. I have been very fortunate to have been able to travel to Alaska, eight of the last 12 summers. It is my hopes I'll be able to make it nine of the last thirteen summers in 2021.

Alaska 2012 and 2013 - I was able to go back to Alaska in 2012 and 2013. The summer of 2012 was a trip made with no reservations. We were very lucky to be able to stay and see/do all we wanted.

August 2013 was able to travel back to Alaska and what another great trip. Adventure and full of life.
