Recipes and snapshots of life in Bristol Bay, AK


We have returned from Iceland, are back in the swing of daily living, school has begun, and I am already plotting our return to the magical island and it’s geothermal pools. I have so much to share, but haven’t even begun the daunting task of editing the thousand some odd photos we took so that will have to wait a bit longer…

In the mean time, yesterday was the day the rest of the country wonders why they don’t live in Alaska, and by that I mean the Permanent Fund Dividends were announced. This year they are a jaw dropping $1884. Some of our families automatically hits college savings, and this year a trip to my parents for Christmas is in order, but quite possibly one of these Nomad collapsible hot tubs could be on it’s way.


Have you seen these? I hadn’t until I stumbled across them this morning and found myself completely enamored. A hot pot that could go anywhere! Just imagine… after a day of hiking you set up camp by a rushing river or serine pond, you’re roasting marshmallows for s’mores while your pot is filling, and finally, enjoying the stars with a relaxing soak before climbing into your tent for the evening. The heating coil alone is pretty nifty as you could use wood, propane or natural gas to power it.

      Wildly impractical but looks totally amazing! If for nothing else other than the copper coil set up around the fire to heat the water!
