I remember a couple years ago when we talked about Forons we admired and I mentioned Henry. I like to think that I am following in his footsteps, but I will never make it to 7000. I do have a life outside the Forum, although Blunt and Hoppy may disagree.

Jesu Christo, it's a regular Henry Vilas orgy!

Well, allow me to join the pile. Henry is one of the very few forons I've ever met, one year ago just before I moved to Maine. It was my pleasure to enjoy a few beers with him at the Weary Traveller on the day of his retirement. Whatever adventures he may find himself on these days, he's earned them. Though that doesn't mean I can't be envious.

Enjoy Alaska, Henry, and if you get to the Northern Atlantic coast, give me a buzz.

Back from Alaska; it was great in the Great Land. Bald eagles as common as pigeons at the capitol. Humpback whales, mountain goats, a moose and a harbor seal. Tongass National Forest and the Mendenhall Glacier. Took the White Pass and Yukon train. Ales from the Alaska Brewing Company. (Although the local IPAs in Victoria, B.C. were much better.) Fed leaves to reindeer. Ate a lot of salmon. Panned for gold (got seventeen bucks worth). My 27th state visited.
