    Video: Alaska Whirlwind Part 1

    Yeah I couldn't keep it less than 15 so broke it in two.
    There is no order rhyme or reason to how the vid is assembled
    Might be enjoyable to some.
    BUT I get to debut the Leighlo Black Widow series of topquilts/underquilts.
    Total weight for the TQ and UQ is 24 ounces and rated 25-30F depending on you. Complete momentum 50 layup. Personally I love the skin on feel of m50 and have see how water resistant it is.


    Part 2 if you haven't thrown up yet:


    OK I'm done now. Have to go back to work to money up for another
    trip to the 49th.

    That place is truly spectacular! Iíve seen it on TV sometimes and recognised a couple of the places. The pros film the same thing in much the same way. With your video, I think I got to see more of Alaska than I have ever seen in all the docos put together.

    How about those bears, so BIG and so many! Thanks for risking life and limb for that shot of the bear. The camp site looked like it had green carpet on the ground. Love the cabin! According to that sign, the bears do their part for the environment by carrying out peoples rubbish for them. lol The sled dogs are cool as! Did you get to have a go on that sled Ė it hammered? If youíve got any more video left, join it together and make another video. That was GREAT! I watched it on the big screen, Iíll watch it again tomorrow! Thanks very much for the videos and slideshow, MedicineMan, it sure must have been the trip of a lifetime!
