And here I thought you were off the grid up there...Instead you appear better connected than most of us...:) That's quite the set up.
Somebody I know just went up to Arctic Village and she said that they have Internet and video games. Here I thought THEY were off the grid.

|Wonderful stuff Jason! And here I thought you were off the grid up there...Instead you appear better connected than most of us...:) That's quite the set up.|
My favorite northern lights sighting was in 1973. My best friend and I were actually trying to get home from Alaska, had flown to Seattle, and tried to hitch-hike cross-country. We were somewhere between Coeur-d'Alene and Bozeman, it was after dark and we were riding on some stacked hay-bales in the back of someone's pickup.
The guys in the truck didn't want to leave us out in the middle of Montana at night and had offered to put us up...We decided to make a go of it and continue...I remember one guy saying, "Fellas. It can get pretty cold at night, here in Montana, in late May...Are you sure?!"
We survived. :)
Good stuff Jason! Thanks for showing it to us...Like others here I had heard that we should be seeing something down this way but never did.

|Very cool, Jason. We had the lights here a few months ago, but it seems like I only find out about these things too late. I'd love to see them sometime.|
