BACK TO ALASKA...XMAS 2015...SEAPLANE AIRPORT.  CK OUT THIS TRUCK....LOOKS GOOFY.  I COULDN'T FIGURE IT OUT, HOW COULD THIS TRUCK RUN ON TWO WHEELS?  THE TRUCK HAS A RIG ATTACHED TO THE FRONT (WHICH U CAN'T SEE) BUT IT IS USED TO PULL SEAPLANES OUT OF THE WATER.  IT'S HEAVY ENOUGH TO BALANCE THE TRUCK AND RIG.




WALK AROUND A LAKE ONE DAY: ROGER, GORDON, KATRINA, ME, MARGIE AND RUSSELL WITH THE LITTLE ONES.

MOOSE PIC BY JOYCE

HUNDREDS OF SEAPLANES

THIS SEAPLANE HAS A "JACKET " ON THE MOTOR

RUSSELL, LILY, AND KATRINA HELMINEN

SIGN  AT THE LAKE

ACCORDING TO ROGER, THERE IS GAS OR ? IN THE BUBBLES ON THE ICE.  HE CHOPPED A HOLE ON A BUBBLE AND THREW A MATCH THERE WHICH MADE A BRIEF FLAME

NEW YEAR'S EVE, WE STROLLED AROUND ANCHORAGE TOWN SQUARE TO SEE THE LIGHTS.  LORETTA (ROGER) HELMINEN AND I

MARGIE AND I
