A little bit of Dutch Harbor/Unalaska comes all the way to Nome! Mayors, Lt. Governor and Governor Candidates come to Nome Alaska for the AML!

So Longtime readers of the blog will remember one of my favorite people from Unalaska, the amazing Mayor Shirley Marquardt!

Well Shirley and most of the Rest of the Mayors in Alaska made the Trek to Nome for the AML 
http://www.akml.org/ Alaska Municipal League.

Of course I was there to show my friends around, both old and new!
Here is Shirley at the White Alice Site (It was quite windy, but super sunny and beautiful)


And here she is overlooking all of Nome from Anvil Mountain.

Again, With the wind......


Also joining us on this trek is Mayor Dan Sullivan, who is also running for Lt. Governor!
REALLY nice guy! Check out his website and Donate!



And of Course we had to see some local wildlife, like the Musk ox!


Aren't Musk ox babies just sooooo cute?



Speaking of wildlife here is Shirley meeting Local Wildman Scott Meisterheim!

Really, He is a nice guy, No matter what Bering Sea Gold portrays him as!


Showing all the other Mayors up, Here is Nome's Mayor Denise Michels

And here is the candidate Bill Walker

Along with old friend and Fellow member of the Convention and Visitors Bureau of Unalaska
 Nancy Peterson, who is working on Bill's campaign
I always vote Republican, but I just met the one man that might make me change that, thank God he is Independent so I won't vote for the DemocRATS.

Speaking of Democrats there is Ms Riddle from Senator Mark Begich's office
But in the background is good friend and City Manager of Unalaska Chris Hladick

And here is me with the VERY possible  future Governor of Alaska Bill Walker
Yeah, I donated, you should at least look over his site.


Dutch Harbor Reunion, Chris, Nancy and Shirley!

My Former Mayor and my new Mayor!

Mayor and Future Governor!

And then it was a quick trip down to Safety Sound 


And the world Famous Safety Roadhouse!



Old Friends and new!


Of course we had to partake of  traditional defacing of a dollar bill,
and clean bartender Tommy out of Chivas Regal





Just to keep it in mind for when Shirley and her husband  come on up for Iditerod!



Big Big group phone with our host Tommy!


Saying goodbye to old friends or really, Until we meet again

Meanwhile the local boys I have adopted are playing out the Hunger Games up on Anvil Mountain.

I better get back to Tim, Hunter, Cody, David and Jerry before someone loses an eye!
Have a great Day!

HOT in Nome, @scotmeisterheim and @AKGoldDiggers Party, The White Alice Sites, MUSK OX!, A quick Jet to Anchorage and Back, @KevinFrazier of The Insider in Nome, Baby Shower, Beautiful Shots around Town, and Friday night with the Boys!


NOME ALASKA hit 82 Degrees the other day! It was insane. The entire town seemed to be melting! Thank GOD for that Rainstorm around 6pm that cooled things down enough to sleep. It's amazing What a lack of Air Conditioning can do!

Speaking of Heating things up, The Amazing ladies of @AKGoldDiggers and @scotmeisterheim of @BeringSeaGold Invited me to a great party the Other night at the Bering Sea Bar/Restaurant
DON"T BELIEVE THE HYPE ON BERING SEA GOLD!
Scott is actually a REALLY nice guy!
REALLY!
He even Cracked open all of Mama SaraJane's King Crab for her!
AND he TELLS THE BEST INSIDE STORIES!
(Sorry, But I Can't Share them till the show comes out)


The @AKGoldDigger Gals are Popular in Germany so here they are sitting down for interviews with German Media

 Then @ToriHartling  of the @AKGoldDiggers Sang Happy Birthday to The Big Daddy Gold Buyer in town in  a voice that would put Marylin Monrow to SHAME!



The White Alice Sites are easily becoming my Favorite quick getway place for quiet reflection after a busy day



And Getting up close to a herd of Musk Ox is and added Plus!



As mentioned I did a Quick Jaunt to Anchorage for a shopping trip for new furniture for the Hotel and The Apartments.

What a Difference just a few months makes Here is the Anchorage Airport Now

And Back in May when I first Arrived!
Love the Flowers!

Fur Nighties Anyone?


So, Once I get the Furniture Here I will show you the Full Transformation of the Lobby But until then

The Great Kevin Frazier of the Insider visited Nome for some Filming for Bering Sea Gold


Here was his Welcome Snack Packs!

Angel is getting CLoser and Closer so We had a Baby shower for her the other day at the Hotel!
And Little Timmy Even Helped!

And Finally some Quick Shots from Last night Out with the boys doing a bit of Exploring by the White Alice Site and Out at Fort Davis

David and Tim From The 4th of July Pics and Introducing Jerry, the Little guy near the hood of the truck

Great Boys and A lot of Fun to hang Around with, But like all teen boys they eat the equilivant of a nation at each sitting. Still worth it cause the Kids Crack me Up!
