You would love it here and it would love you. Many, many of our commercial fishing friends have "retired" here. Your quiet strength, sense of humor and independent spirit would be a lovely fit. :)

I so enjoy reading your stories and answers. Thank you so much for your kind participation and time. Please stay as a valued friend on our forum - it is a wonderful group of enthusiasts and we would value your input all year long. We have enough bongos :o and weirdos :twisted: and enough hidden talent to keep life uber-interesting, PLUS we all care very deeply for and bring out the best in each other over and over. The long days and longer nights during the race are full of astounding bonding, zaniness and caring, and the rest of the year just brings us closer.

(And besides all else, there are umbrella drinks and brownies. :D )

A "raised purple umbrella" drink is about as "high praise" as you get around here and you and Joe certainly deserve one (maybe two :roll: ). What great stories you shared and your openness is delightful. Thanks again for your participation and blessings to you and Joe.

I sure enjoyed your stories about the wild animals who adopted you. Amazing about the bear cub surviving the winter.
You are very kind to take time to be with us. Sure hope we see you here often and the sleepover sounds like fun.

Norma, thank you. Joe, if you've been looking over Norma's shoulder during her visits here, thank you, too. ;) Thank you both for your remarkable contributions to the race--that would be the Iditarod race AND the human race! :D

We've enjoyed your stories and your presence here tremendously. Thank you for taking the time from what must be a crazy hectic schedule getting ready for the next of your life's adventures. Wherever you land, I hope it's softly. Virtually, we all hope you won't go far.

So, before the thread is locked, we'd just like to bestow upon you official, certified, esteemed (well, sort of), valued (at least by us), honorary Iditabud-ness. There are no crowns, no robes. Just a circle of friends with whom to follow the race. ;)

Love, hugs and kisses from your Iditabud friends. ;) :) :D :) ;)
