"So, take for example this guy here. While Roomba gets completely underneath that coffee table, he or she only goes partway because of the handle..."
One danger of humanizing inanimate objects: maintaining gender neutral language.

1 Box of Doughnut holes
1 4pack of chocolate handi-snacks
Dip the doughnut holes in the handi-snacks and eat up. Amazingly good no matter what it sounds like and just happened across it tonight by accident of course.

It was a good first hike for Midge, had some trouble with the whole wandering away bit but she'll get there. She almost got eaten by some birds, they kept divebombing her and got so close she was rolling over on the ground that was a little weird but she survived unscathed so yay for stupid animal vs. stupid bird coming to a draw. And, didn't see any bears, I think.. maybe one rock bear but I headed around the other side of the hill without bothering to figure out which it was (I hadn't noticed it on the way out so my vote was rock but better safe than sorry and all...).
So, pictures up later hopefully.

Friday - Fairbanks to Palmer via Hatcher Pass
Saturday - Palmer to someplace near Nabesna with a stop at Lake Louise over the Glenn highway, the Richardson, the Tok Cutoff and Wrangel St. Elias national park.
Sunday - Nabensa to McCarthy (southern end of Wrangel St. Elias park) and then up to the Tangle Lakes and the Denali Highway.
Monday - Tangle Lakes to Palmer over the old Denali Highway (Paxson to Cantwell) and then down the Parks.
Tuesday - Palmer to Fairbanks via Hatcher Pass.
The trips was awesome. Good food, good scenery despite the rain, and a healthy dose of off-kilter people from local nuts to tourists.
So, here's a tweety bird near Hatcher Pass:
A ground squirrel I snuck up on (poor little guy's getting chewed on by a mosquito):
Chilling with the rock cairn family in Wrangell-St.Elias Park
... it's an old cabin down near McCarthy in the SE corner of the state.
PS, back from the great tour of Alaska. Perhaps the redneck tour of Alaska since most places the four wheeler to person ratio was about 1 to 1.5.
