When I first heard we were getting stationed in Alaska a few things ran through my mind, what is there to do there…it’s cold…I do not own clothing suitable for the tundra! So I did what anyone would do and googled things to do, I made a list of my findings. Hiking, hunting, fishing, these were the three most recurring things. I cannot say I am well versed in any of these. But the husband on the other hand was determined to make a wilderness woman out of me.
