Very cool. I love old geneological photos like that.

I wonder what kind of load they would get in that trap, its yuge.

You have to be pretty tough then too. My hat's off to you, well when it warms up that is, and the mosquitoes aren't biting.

SW AK.

They traveled by sled dog and trapped all over the area.

What puzzled me is the grass they used. I wasn't aware AK had a lot of grass. Ignorant me.

Might not get out too far but will go out.
Probably will take all of my family even the 2yr old daughter.

I hear you on the body that does not work/feel right.

Very cool.

Let me guess---they were Eskimos; yet Ancestry.com's DNA kit says that you're 75% West African, 11% Irish, and 14% Japanese.

Shit happens to me all the time. Two different companies told me completely different shit.
