After 3800 miles and five days of driving, I'm home again in Texas after spending a season working in Ketchikan, AK. I must say, my job was fabalous - I do have reservations concerning my employer, however, I will just leave it at that. I loved driving my coach over the 32 miles of paved highway and leading tours in two different places. The guests were great! Amazing how many new friends you can make in such a short time.
On one of my tours, there was a older gentleman with his wife following me through Totem Bight. When we were exaiming some of the different berries there, I explained that the huckleberries of Alaska were nothing like the ones of my youth. That the ones of my youth were very very sweet clusters of berries growing on low bushes and they usually had a rattlesnake under them. The gentleman asked where I had been raised... and like all southerns, we got into a discussion of our ancestors and who we may know in common... come to find out, this man had known my grandparents on both sides, had attended school with my mother and had even know me as a child of about 10 years old.... now, I've been traveling since I was 20 years old and have never ever met anyone from the same area that I grew up in... it was an amazing tour for me just because of his knowing my kin folks. Life is good, God is great and I can't wait to do it again.
