    Well Gang:

    As of Today we have sold our Mobile Home. What a Birthday Present. It will Close on the 5th of March and I have to be out on the 7th of March. So It looks like I have gotta get things all Packed up and Ready to Loadup on the 6th and Then we are off to Alaska. We already have a house rented up there and we will start North on the 6th or 7th of March and spend a few days at my sisters in ST Joseph, MO and then head for the Alcan Highway.

    I have made Three trips up it, so this will be my Fourth. It's a long ride from here, right at 4350 Miles. We Plan on being up there around the 20th of March, give or take a couple of days. Then our Dream will come true. WE have both been wanting to go back to a Place we Love and it's finally Gonna happen. We have missed Alaska since we moved down from there in 2003 and figured we probably would not get to go back. We are both Grinnin Ear to Ear.

    I will be of the computer from about the 5th til the end of the month. But Fear not, The BOC is a place that I will be on and read and do some posting about every day when I get back online. I have Loved the BOC since I joined in 2003 and will not turn my Back on it as I have so many Good Friend here.

    I will Stay in Touch:

    Glad to hear things are working out for you and you and the wife are so happy about this move. Please be careful in your travels and know you are in our hearts and on our minds as you make the journey. You are a great member to have here on the BOC and I am tickled to death to say I got to meet you at the gathering and learn from you in person. You have a wealth of knowledge that we just can't do without.

    Get back to posting soon, you will be missed while you are "out of pocket".

    Mike;

    We are moving to a House up the North Road from Kenai. It about 10 miles north out in the
    country . It about a 1/2 mile from where we used to live up there, it about 3/4 of a mile from
    the Cook Inlet.

    Richard, I know that there will be one up there as it will be ME. The Only Problem being is that there are no Catfish in Alaska.
