Percy the bear. And Jamie’s visit to Alaska.

make way for summer!

At the end of April, Ben and I kicked off summer in true Corwin fashion, we loaded up Little Foot and set sail for bear country. We made it almost all the way before having to pull over and catch some zzzz’s in our camper. It felt so amazing to just be able to climb […]

On Saturday morning, Ben, Ruby and I set out for some bonus hunting but mostly camping wild adventure around Alaska.

Memorial Day weekend was spent with us hunting ferociously for bears. We dropped Ruby off at Grandma’s house and headed out the door on Saturday with grand plans for bringing back a black bear!

The month of May should be labeled “the month of the bear” as Ben, Chris and myself have gone out on several bear hunts….. one super successful; two not so much; ALL super fun and brilliant! Ben escaped Anchorage with his buddy, Ray, in search of a black bear for our freezer as it was […]
