Here Birdie Birdie

Winter and Spring have their eyes locked on a cute lil yellow bird on the feeder. Wonder what types of birds are in Ak? lol Thought this pic was too cute to not share.

Alaska, Land of the Midnight Sun

I have decided to move to Alaska! Juneau to be exact. It's always been a dream of mine to make my way to the great Northwest and see the beautiful Alaskan mountains. Oh, and to ride some amazing fresh pow as well! :) Dustin and I have decided to finally do it. We are in the process of selling off stuff we don't need so we can pack the Subie to the max and hit the road in September. If everything goes as planned, we will be working for the Eaglecrest Ski Area's Snowsports School during the winter and will look for summer work (which is plentiful since it's a major port for cruise ships). 


I will miss my friends and family, but I NEED this to happen. I want to see as much of the world as I can while it's still in one piece. 

If anyone has any travel advice on driving cross-country, or has lived or been to Juneau, please share! Any advice will be helpful and greatly appreciated!

Random Rants

It's been well over a month since my last post. My birthday has passed, as well as Dustins. We went on a camping trip (with keg) :) for our birthdays which was hella fun. Not much else has happened, other than getting back to work full swing at the Club. 

There are a couple concerns of mine that I would like to share. 

First, the Miami zombie apocalypse. Really? If you haven't heard, check this link out:

Secondly, on June 5th, we will be able to see the silhouette of Venus fly across the moon. Considering this wont happen again until the year 2117, I think it's pretty damn important that we try to get a glimpse of this. For more info on this spectacular event, check out:

Another thing is coconut oil. This stuff is amazing. Seriously amazing. You can use coconut oil for many, many, MANY things, from cooking to cleaning to health and beauty. This is definitely a must-read article! Check it out here:

One last thing that has me wondering how some people are so frigging STUPID to let someone microchip them is because of this article:

Here's a photo to think about :)
