"Katherine, Ricky and Von Hairy -- nearly finished
The following summer, we finished up our log cabin and moved in. It seemed to us, like a palace. I still live in the cabin, still cut my own wood and even though more modern plumbing
is located in the bathhouse, I still use my outhouse. For where else, in the winter, can you sit beneath the stars and watch the aurora dance and play? It's my private theater, of sorts! Besides, my outhouse
won an award (only in Alaska!) and is featured in the book, "Outhouses of Alaska" by author/photographer, Harry Walker, so it's pretty special. Our tent winter was filled with hopes and dreams, disasters and delights. No, it wasn't easy, but
through it all we struggled together, laughed together, cried together, grew together. We learned about basic priorities and what "family and love" really mean. So when I'm asked, as I have been many
times, "Would you do it all again?" there's only one answer... "Yes."
