What do you get when you combine a love for Alaska and a Duramax Diesel engine? AKDmax!
Well it has been a while since the last post...hopefully that doesn't become a habit. We are finally getting settled into the new place and beginning to take in some of the local attractions. Did I mention that I completed my B.S.B.A. degree, with honors? Rather anticlimactic since it was in conjunction with us moving and I didn't send out graduation invitations (I couldn't attend anyway) or announcements. Here's a pic of the house and the latest addition to the motor vehicle fleet (my grad present to myself).

Can't get enough
Took another fishing charter with Live Bait Sportfishing...didn't do too bad and got to spend some time with good friends before we depart the island next month. Hopefully one more trip before we leave. Got some great action shots of DB haulin in a big Mahi Mahi.
Here's a pic of today's bounty...

Making travel plans?
Here is an interesting story discussing how the state of

Wow! It's been over 2 months since the last update. Time fly's when you're having fun! Well, another semester is behind me and I'm on the home stretch. 3 more classes left, 1 that I plan to test out of, and I get my life back. Ever wonder why you pay over $100.00 for books and they only give you $25.00 when you sell them back? Some of my books I could have left in the wrapper and returned as new. I'm afraid to add up how much books cost for a year!
News on the assignment front: We have our orders and will be going to California, unless of course they (no one knows who they really are) decide to change them between now and then. This is as official as it can get though and it should be a done deal. Looking forward to moving away from Hawaii, and getting back in the United States for a while (I know, Hawaii is the 50th state, but their allegiance to the U.S. is debatable). No plans to do anything right yet, but we will take a nice vacation (vacation= no set schedule, no pressure) during our transition. House hunting has started (wow, houses are expensive) and we are trying to narrow down the cities we would like to purchase in. Anything will be better than cellblock C.
So there you go...an update. Haven't taken any pictures, it's been raining pretty much non-stop for 3 weeks so there isn't much to take pictures of. The city sewer has been overflowing into the ocean so that isn't even pretty to look at right now. Unless of course you are into floating snickers bars!

Had a great day yesterday with Shannon and Ali from Live Bait Sportfishing...you should have seen the ones that got away! I wish I could have too. Got hooked into what the guide thought was a big shark...watched a lot of line spool off the reel until it finally broke.
