In my long ago and misspent youth I used to ride motorcycles. A lot. Snowmachines too. Started when I was around 9 or 10. In fact, I think the reason my hair turned curly when I was a teen and subsequently started thinning was from spending so much time with a helmet on. Seriously. Now, let’s just say that I rode motorbikes … aggressively. But I had one rule: If I fell down, off, or over three times, no matter how...

Hulse, Sisson, Foster, Tobias win Eco Challenge
Early on in Saturday’s Eco Challenge, Steve Hulse made a team decision that was either going to make him a hero or a goat. The team of four backtracked 200 meters — passing a few teams along the way — on a fog-covered Anton Larsen Pass and decided to take a trail that Hulse believed was a shortcut to the next checkpoint. “I said, ‘I’m getting us lost or we are going to be ahead,”’ Hulse said. “Sure enough, another...

OUTDOOR KODIAK: The secret season
Which hunting season is most overlooked? It slips by so quietly, you might even call it Kodiak’s Secret Season. In fact, it opened a week ago, and it even slipped past me. I’m talking about ptarmigan. The season opened August 10, but somehow I had it in my head that it didn’t open until August 20. It’s easy to overlook the ptarmigan hunting on Kodiak, because on the road system anyway, you mostly find them only at...

Let’s reflect on Kodiak’s priorities
Back in my college years, I had a college economics professor whose favorite saying was “what do you want — guns or butter?” If you have limited resources and unlimited demand for goods and services then logic dictates that you determine priorities and concentrate those limited resources on those things that are essential. It is apparent to some of us in Kodiak that we have a severe meth and heroin addiction probl...
