Picture of the Day

We bought a new 4-wheeler from the dealer in Nome. Sunday morning we drove it 75 miles up the Nome Teller highway (it's called a highway, but it is actually a narrow bumpy gravel road across the tundra). After getting to Teller we needed to get it across the water to Brevig. We lucked out and were able to get a boat ride from Brian Crocket the pastor at the churches in Brevig and Teller. He has church service in the morning in Teller and in the evening in Brevig. He has an 18' Lund with a 40hp Yamaha outboard. We put a couple of wooden planks on the side of the boat and just drove the 4-wheeler up into the boat. The boat feels tippey with a load that big sitting up so high, but we made it across the channel despite the 25mph wind and the big swells coming in off the ocean.

Hey there! Glad to see you're safe and sound back in Brevig... and with a new ride!

We missed seeing you this summer. I'm so sorry we didn't connect.

Enjoy the last couple of weeks of summer!

Gee, who gets to drive four wheelers and go for boat rides as a daily and necessary part of life?! Sounds like fun!

I'm glad to see that "Picture of the Day" is back. Fun stuff!
