So, Snug Harbor road near Cooper Landing. I have tried twice before to get up it and have been turned around twice by the snow. Today I made it. Um, the end was only a few hundred yards past where I made it before. I did find a kick ass camping spot right on Kenai Lake though. It is just amazing up there. G and Ken will remember going up there to 4 wheel and shoot last November. The little clearing where we made a fire? It is now a parking lot! Up in the middle of nowhere there is now a parking lot in the place we camped and played around. What the hell? G is going to be here from November 7 to 15, so I am trying to plan a bunch of adventures. It just depends on the weather. We have had no snow yet this year and the weather is very, very mild. It is in the 40's during the day and we have only had a frost or two at night. If it stays that way maybe we will even go boat camping! G has never had a successful trip on the boat and it is time to break that curse. One last trip before a long winter would suit me well. And if the snow flies before then, we will drink and play video games and just relax. My murder trial starts February 1, so I could use a break before the long haul. So, either way, just as good. video

So after firing your three distress shots, emergency signal, did anyone come to your call for help? Boy Scouts 101.
No...because immediately afterwards more shots were fired. Besides, we were the only ones up there. But good point.
What?!? Palin's parking lot to nowhere, suppose.

why the coveralls?
Would the ak-15 even be legal in Canada?
I mean AR-15. LOL.
Coveralls becasue it gets cold when you are moving on the Rhino. I learned long ago to overdress in Alaska. And no, a AR-15 would not be legal in Canada. Hence my declaration of freedom.

The Government of Canada classifies the AR-15 (and its variants) as a restricted firearm. For a citizen to lawfully own an AR-15, he or she must first pass a "Canadian Non-Restricted Firearms Safety Test", and then a "Canadian Restricted Firearms Test". This allows the applicant to obtain a Possession and Acquisition Licence (PAL) valid for restricted firearms.[18][19] With the introduction of strict gun control measures by former Prime Minister Jean Chr├ętien (Bill C-68), the AR-15 had originally been intended to be classified as Prohibited, making it all but impossible to privately own one, however due to the presence of nationwide Service Rifle target shooting competitions, the AR-15 was granted a sporting exception.

As with all Restricted firearms (including all pistols, some shotguns, and some rifles) AR-15s are only allowed to be shot at certified firing ranges. In order to legally own and transport a Restricted firearm, a citizen must also register their firearm with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and must apply for an Authorization to Transport (or ATT) permit from the RCMP Chief Firearms Officer (CFO) for their province. Additionally, the firearm must be unloaded, deactivated by a trigger or action lock, and be in a locked, opaque container during transport[20]

The issuance of ATTs varies considerably from Province to Province, and is generally reflective of a particular province's political and social levels of acceptance toward gun ownership. For example, in Alberta, where firearms ownership is widely accepted, generally a single ATT is promptly issued that allows citizens to transport firearms to border crossings, gunsmiths, and shooting ranges. Conversely, Quebec and Ontario, where firearms ownership is generally not viewed as socially acceptable, the CFOs do not readily issue ATTs and generally require separate ones for transportation for any reason
And THAT is why I left Canada. Right there.
