This past week I've been a bit concerned about my Coast Guard Son, Tom.
As most of you know by my past posts he lives up in Juneau, Ak. He is career Coast Guard and he and his family live in the cold and snow, loving it. Well his car had a malfunction of sorts and being there is no dealer for his car, an Audi S4 he had to send it to Seattle for repair. The car is only two years old so it was shipped by the dealer. Tom had to fly to Seattle and drive the car home in the middle of Alaska winter. He said this morning it was a frozen tundra for the entire drive. He did have to take a three day ferry ride also.
I was worried about Tom and told his wife he needed to get a Land Rover or Jeep for the area. "Ha ha", she said and sent me this video advertisement of his car.
Ok, I gave in and now know this is the car for him to be diving up there!
Tom was thrilled with the drive because that's the kind of guy he is, adventure is his game. He sent a photo of his dirty car from the slush and snow and ice while he stayed the night in some small town. Another 500 miles and he would be back home in Juneau.
Tom now has started another adventure into the world of photography. See his site below.
He has taken some really nice photos over the past few years and now offers them to the public.
This tiny town, population 7, is full of ghosts, from the days of the great Alaska gold rush.

I told the story of this fella below in a previous post.
Imagine this brown bear walking towards you, Tom thought it was cool!

I just love showing the photos of Toms life and sharing with my readers.
Go into his web site Here, there are lots more to see.
As I sit here waiting for the call saying he arrived safe and sound from his ride home, I try not to think of all the dangers
"Ha Ha" sure right, who me worry, but then that's what we moms do!
