Not sure what happened to the babies but momma is by herself now. That can't be good.

I hope that is not true.

#504 6 months ago

NOOOO they are so cute. I like aminals more than I like humans. She probably leaves them hidden somewhere like a deer?

#505 6 months ago

It was definitely the same moose too. she had a distinct scar on her shoulder.

Any updates?

#507 6 months ago

Didn't see her today.

#509 6 months ago

I’m rooting for the moose babies. My wife loves mooses and I showed her the pics. Now we are sad trust they may be gone

#510 6 months ago

It looked friendly.

Moose’s will fuck you up

#513 6 months ago

That is a very friendly one. Obviously

#514 6 months ago

Thats the definition of the exception that proves the rule.

Im not saying moose are dangerous (unless you perhaps collide with them in your car). But they are wild animals. And should (mostly) be left alone. (Unless its hunting season)

Sorry for derailing your thread Tomass.

#515 6 months ago

Makes me want to play the Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle pinball.

Forget about car, I almost hit one on my mountain bike. Happened so quick I didn't even have time to be scared of it's mooseness. As I came flying around a turn my initial thought was "What's that horse doing out here with no rider".

#517 6 months ago

Yeah, they have a crazy streak though. Sometimes they get crazy eyes and you know to stay away.
I saw a nice black bear on the way to work this morning but couldn't get a pic.

#518 6 months ago

Any news on the mooses?

#519 5 months ago
Quoted from zr11990:

Haven't seen any of the 3 since. I did see a really cool vid where a baby couldn't make it over the guard rail to get to its momma and had traffic stopped in both directions. A guy waited until the mom wasn't looking and lifted it up and over. I will see if I can get a link for it.

1 week later
#520 5 months ago

Pretty sure this is the same momma. She has 1 baby with her but the baby is limping on 1 leg.

Good news! Just saw the momma with both babies. She was a little too fast to get a pic though.

Wow that is good news!

#523 5 months ago

That is good to hear. i have been thinking about that moose and her babies and it was kindof sad to think something killed them.

#524 5 months ago

Once again, weekend comes up and cloudy with rain. I had to get out though so we drove over the pass. Yep, all that whinning about winter and i drive up to see more snow.

Awesome pictures Tomass love seeing all the wildlife and scenery you post. I’m in Australia and I love watching the doco’s on cable and Netflix of where you are.

Thx Peter.

Saw a bull with new antlers this morning.

So now my son says he is going to drop everything and go live in Alaska. He has to wait a year to get into PT school and he is bored sitting at home waiting. He unloaded on us today that he was going to pack his stuff and go to Alaska and find a job. Im already sad just thinking about it. I love my son and I will miss him.

That is kinda how I did it. I bought a school bus and pulled the seats and packed it to the gills. I wanted to move hear most of my life, but the moment my wife decided she wanted to move here, I jumped on it. Was a great decision but I do miss family.

#535 5 months ago

Are there jobs available? He just graduated from A&M but he is waiting to get into PT school. He doesnt want to live at home and he has nothing tying him down

Yes, lots of jobs. Many people work up north on the slope. They get flown up and work 2 weeks on and 2 weeks off and make bank. There are other rotations than 2 and 2, and if I were young and single I would probably do something like that. As far as physical therapy, I know a lot of medical places are always hiring. It is a great place to live and life happens at a slower pace. Very little traffic is a plus.

I will pass that along

If you like salmon, Sockeye is amazing. One of my cooks brought me 3 nice reds in today.

If your son is going into PT or anything to do with medical then AK is a great place to go for a job. My wife spent two plus years in AK and we plan on going back at some point (the weather and our jobs in SB, CA are just so nice right now or we would be back there already)!

Yeah, we have 5 species in AK. Kings and silvers are good, but sockeye is my favorite. We won't talk about pinks and chum.

I do not and I love fish. I do like smoked salmon with salty peas but I won’t eat cooked.

#543 5 months ago

Just got a late fathers day gift from the kids. Probably the best gift they could've gotten me.

If you have only had Atlantic salmon, you need to try this!

20210630_172732 (resized).jpg
#545 5 months ago

You can fill a chest freezer with these if you want.

Oh man, the salmon in Alaska is amazing... Best I've ever had. Now I need to go back for a third time....

I had salmon jerky up there too - was surprisingly delicious!

Cod is best

#549 5 months ago

So I kinda overpaid for a set of games hoping I can clean them up and fix the Comet that was included to make a small profit or keep one of the vids for my collection. Can anyone tell me the approximate value of a DK jr and a Star Gate? They are all original survivors in a ladies possession since 85. They are really dirty but seem to be cleaning up nice. 2100 for the 3. The Comet has a decent pf but the cab is pretty bad and needs a good bit of work. I will get pics later of the SG since I haven't unloaded it yet. Just got these last night.

20210702_155544 (resized).jpg
#550 5 months ago

I should add that the vids are in working order and that tape residue around the speaker is coming off without leaving anything behind. Just need to finish cleaning it.
