    First I want to Thank you all for the wishes for a safe trip.

    We had a great Trip with Blue Skies every day but one. Only had to drive on snowpacked roads part of two days. I waited in St Joseph, MO until I thought we had a good weather window and we took off and I really picked the perfect departure date. We had absolutely no problems with the truck or trailer, We had a fairly heavy load but it was no problem for the Dodge Ram With the Cummins. Hardley knew the trailer was back there. The trip was a good one and a safe one.

    We are truely Glad and Happy to be back HOME. Not a lot has Changed around here since we left. We are both about totally exhausted from unloading and unpacking and getting some furniture found, getting the Phone and DSL Hooked up, Utilities, and ETC. I think I am about to Kick Back and Finally Take a Break. It is so beautiful up here with some snow still in the Ground and MT Redoubt Blowing it's Top about every Day or so. We have only had one Ash cloud come our way and only the edge of it going over us. It dropped a very minute sprinkling of ash. about 8 miles north of us it dropped about a 1/4 inch of the stuff. The Mushroom cloud looked like someone had dropped an Atomic Bomb. It was an Awesome site. It will quit hopefully in a month or so.

    I am Pooped and getting ready for the Beauty Sleep I need. Will post some more soon.

    Thanks to all you Great BOC People;

    Gene and Helen Chambers

    Hi Gene. Glad yall made it. When you talk to Jeff, tell him that I said 'Hi' and that me and my buddy still talk about the fishing trip we had with him. It wasn't so much the salmon trip that was so great, but the camping and fishing around his place on the Kenai that was the kicker. We had a blast & he was a big part of it. I'm still glad you turned me onto that idea, because it was pretty special.

    I know you were ready to get home, but were they ready for you? And don't give us that guff about picking the right weather window. Tell us the truth Gene. You left so you could time crossing the state boarder when no one was looking! lol :crazy::eek:oooh::tounge_out::smile2::smile2::smile2:
