I got out my fishing rod and walked down to the water in Valdez and the fish just started dying of fright.

You have an amazing resemblance to Les Stroud.

Such low self esteem.

C'mon man. You're in Alaska. Catching hundreds of pounds of fish. Drinking beer by the gallon. You're not being shot at.

Whats up with those negative vibes?

You're A Rootin, Tootin, Fishing Adonis!

Oh, I don't have self esteem issues, I just look like Uncle Fester when I shave my head. Tomorrow is my last day in Alaska. It's been a good trip. We did Anchorage, Seward, Homer, Palmer, Talkeetna, Tok, Valdez and everything in between. Sent 471lbs of fish filets home, drank a lot of beer and didn't end up as bearshit. It's a win.

Sent 471lbs of fish filets home...... Damn. My in laws in PI would crush that over a 3 day family reunion. The pictures you posted look great and very inviting, just don't know if I'll ever get up there.

Sitting at the Anchorage airport. Thanks for all who provided advise and to justamedic for arming me well during my travels. For those who havn't seen it, I highly recommend it for nothing other than the scenery if you're not an outdoorsman.

Way cool trip , Dudes! It has always been a dream of mine to get up there to bowhunt Caribou and Moose, then catch some fish! I watch Larry Czonka on North to Alaska to quell my urgings.

Nice supply.

He was snaping the pic while in his yoga pants and standing on his head. I have to use special settings just to look at his pics but I'm ok with that now.
