A Big Adventure......?


Dan, the Rooms Division Manager at the Grand Aleutian, has promised me something "Special" today when it comes to the Cornelia Marie going into dry dock. I have NO idea what it is going to be, But knowing Dan, It will be Awesome!


If you have not checked out his blog, Please do so at your first opportunity.




He is everything you would think of when imagining a real Alaskan man. And Yes Ladies, he is Straight AND Single!!! (He is also financially secure, not an alcoholic, and has one of the best Dogs on the Island, Dakota) Why is he still single? I think it is because not that many people can keep up with him. From Early morning "Dives" to explore the waters around Dutch and train others for things such as "recovery" dives, to his week long "hikes" to remote corners of the island, to his Month long treks (In February!) to places like Sweden for "Camping Trips", and STILL he runs a really tight ship here at the Grand. I believe he sleeps about 4 hours a night...if he can "fit it in"! If You Click on his map of the Kungsleden Trek he has planned, you can see how he plans to cross the Arctic Circle, In Feb, In Sweden.

If you click on the Photo Gallery and then on Misc Folder you can get an idea what he looks like too.


Anyway though, I am bursting with excitement to see what this day holds........

(And Maybe a little trepidation.....LOL)

Wish me Luck!!!

Frieda said...

I betcha ( Gov Palin influence?) he is going to dive on the CM to help with something. Maybe he has a wet suit in your size!

Becky said...

He is Yummy....except for the whole sleeping in a tent thing! = )

Actually I have been following Dan's blog for quite some time. It was just a couple weeks ago that the fact he was at the GA slapped me in the head. I wish he was on blogger so I could keep all my favs together! How is the weather CB? Any flying things getting in? Geese, ducks, planes?

Kim said...

Ive been following Dans blog for a little while. Hes a great photographer and quite adventurous. Quirky sense of humor too. Sorry the shirt thing kills me.

Carlisleboy said...

Actually your Boys are in. I just saw some of them in the restaurant.

Reading said...

Glad they arrived safely, did the Wizard guys get there? Feed them good and tell them to get to work.

Kim said...

Great to hear they arrived safely.

Dani said...

Dan seems quite the adventurer!! hope you have fun with the something special! :)

Lori said...

Thanks for the update on the guys arriving A-OK. Can't wait to hear about the CM thing!

Elizabeth Douglas said...

Wow, Dan's blog is awesome! He's quite the adventurer! I can't wait to see what he brings up concerning the CM. I'm sure I'll be reading him now too...good grief, I'll be on blogger all the time!

ErieLady said...

cb, you are the best thanks for letting us know the boys are there.

gbbarb said...

#13 - Evil laugh ensues - BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Carlisleboy said...

ARGHGHGHGHHHH!!!
You know you only got that in because I was out watching the CM pull into Drydock!!!
Evil, just evil!!!
You sat around all morning just waiting for that didn't you?
And the Rest of you just let that happen.
Bad Bad Blog Followers!!!

Sorry CB, I was out doing carpool duty while you were having all the fun. So is she all safe and dry now?

Dani said...

lol bad blog follower here...i was tryin to think of an excuse as to why i let it happen,but i dont really have one! i just didnt notice it was #13.
did everything go smooth with the CM??

Carlisleboy said...

Everything is fine and Phil and the boys just checked in to the Hotel for a few days. Stalkers, do not even try to call because your calls will not be put through!!!!!

gbbarb said...

Hee, hee, that is what happens when I'm home alone sick and bored silly. Can't wait to see the CM pictures.

gbbarb said...

Now CB we won't try and call the Harris men because that would take too much effort and I'm a lazy stalker but I do expect plenty of pictures of Jake.

Mick Muise said...

I am too lazy to stalk which is why I just read blogs! ;)

I (heart) Dan's blog, but he is way too energetic for me! Are there any cute, single guys in Dutch who just like to hang out and watch football? Send me one of those, please thanks.

And if the NW has a crush on Jake that means I have the same crush tastes as a crab boat. Don't quite know how to take that.

Kim said...

Edgar is so much cuter and sexier than Jake. Sorry CB I was kinda hoping to see what would happen if gbbarb managed post 13. Sleeping in a tent is optional. there are plenty of other things to do in a tent!!! Keep that in mind Becky!

Carlisleboy said...

Everything went VERY good with the CM!! Pictures up Maybe today, But My Special Suprise is actually going to be a bit later today.

gbbarb said...

Thanks Kim, I do love co-cospirators. I will agree that Edgar is cute, completely nuts but with Sig as your big brother you can't expect to grow up normal.

Kim said...

See I love the nutty aspect. It adds to his overall personality. I think we should try to get all his posts up to 13. See what happens then.

Frieda said...

Ahh well, I am off to work without being able to see the 'special surprise'! Such is life. Be assured I will be checking back at 2:30am!

TX Bandita Jamie said...

ok... dying to know what the big surprise is!
