Day 150

Dear all,

As a last-day goodbye, I've made a list of the ten most Alaskan things I've learned in my few months here. In order of preference (1 being my most favorite, and 10 being by far my least), they are:

1. how to chop wood

2. how to camp in the backcountry

3. how to brew beer

4. how to hike a glacier

5. how to run a plowtruck

6. how to use a chainsaw
[never got a photo of this one ... sorry]

7. how to go ice fishing

8. how to exist without daylight

9. how to exist without darkness

10. how to shoot a gun

Much love,
