"Death No Obstacle To Getting PFD" remains my favorite Alaska headline. For those of you who live Outside, PFD stand for Permanent Fund Dividend, otherwise known as "you get paid to live there don't you?" When I find the poem I wrote with the "Death No Obstacle..." title I will post it. Seems my (non-existent) filing system has failed.
Note: Seven years ago on Feb. 11th John and I rolled into Anchorage to start our Alaska adventure. Two years ago, on Feb. 11th (our fifth anniversary of arriving), I almost had a moose sit on my lap. Thanks to my Subaru Forester (badly damaged but fixable) for protecting me! A.H.
