It’s a different world up here.


I’ve been in Alaska for a short period of time, and well long enough to get a feel for climate, geographic bearing, and a sense of the social dynamics that come with a population of 800. The weather is much like the Pacific Northwest, but with a twist, it’s much more unpredictable here, we have spots of sunshine and snow storms all in on afternoon. Judging from the pass from Canada to town (the only road outa here) I will have ample skiing here all year round, I’m sitting in town (21 blocks long and 4 blocks wide) that is in a small valley located at sea level, encompassed by snow covered mountains, a fjord that is fueled with sea water from the Pacific Ocean, and not much else but views here…I mean no Movie theater, not a single chain franchise (well with the exception of a seasonal StarBucks Coffee), no free Wi-Fi, basically take everything that you’ve taken for granted and toss it out the window! No UPS or Fed-Ex delivery, No Clothing Stores, No Automotive Repair shop, ete.,.

But the hikes are amazing! Views? You ask? The kind of views that make a National Geographic Magazine Cover. Period. It’s that good! Ravens, Crows, and Bald Eagles swarm in the sun filled skies, while Bear, Moose, Caribou, Rams, and Mountain Goats claim the land as home. Let’s see what about the sea? Well, we get fresh fish every week at the dock, Salmon, Shrimp, Crab, you name it…

As for publishing this stuff please understand it’s a different world up here! People move slower and getting to a connection to upload my stories may take sometime, but nevertheless, please keep in touch for more updates to come as I figure out to adapt to the land that time forgot.


It truly is paradise up here if you can find a way to make a living!

Take care,

Billy Holmes

Billy, Billy, Billy,
The fan club is in disarray, the t-shirts are on backorder and because of all the chaos I may have to resign as President of the Billy Holmes Fan Club...but I'm glad YOU'RE well and enjoying the scenery of Alaska. The only problem with it all is that YOU are THERE and we are HERE! :)

Seriously though, I loved your update. Miss you (and Koryn too!!!)

If you are an erectile dysfunction patient and the disorder is wreaking havoc in your sex life then discuss your problem with a doctor as soon as possible. Once you approach a physician, the doctor is likely to provide you Viagra prescription which further entitles you to obtain Viagra from viagra stores. If you administer Viagra in accordance with medical instructions, bearing in mind all the essential Viagra side-effects and precaution details, you would find yourself considerably relieved from the shackles of impotency.

Generic Viagra is used in the treatment of Erectile Dysfunction (impotence), but it is not a cure. Impotence can be caused by a number of factors, either physical or psychological. Viagra can help maintain an erection but it will not stimulate arousal.

reggiewhite said...

Generic Viagra is the world renowned medicine for erectile dysfunction and most men have forgotten they ever had a problem with erections after its use. Take it on empty stomach and it will work in 30 minutes. Erections can be achieved on stimulation.

Generic Cialis works by helping the blood vessels in your penis to relax, allowing the flow of blood into your penis. The result of this is improved erectile function.

johnnysmith said...

Generic Cialis is slightly different from the other erectile drugs available in the market as it may work up to 36 hrs after dosing. Generic Levitra orks along with sexual stimulation to help achieve an erection when taken 30 to 60 minutes before sexual activity.
