Hello world!

Welcome to my blog about Alaska and my Cabin and my retirement dreams! 

Summer 2010

 This is where I wish I was sitting right now!  I hoped to get up there once this winter, but events are stacking up in my way as always.  June can’t come soon enough!  My little cabin was built sometime in the 1950’s by a woman and her two sons.  It is tiny at 13′ square, but a bigger one is coming soon.  For now it is purely a recreational cabin with an old cast-iron wood stove for heat and no running water or power.  My dream cabin will be about 20’x24′ and will have more conveniences as I plan to retire there eventually.

My hope for this blog is that I will attract some readers who can not only enjoy my journey vicariously but can possibly give me construction advice as I go along.  Although I will have to hire a contractor for the heavy stuff like creating a septic system and framing and roofing, I hope to do as much finish work as I can manage on my own. 

So I welcome and encourage any comments as long as you are patient with me!  

Thanks for joining me.
