Just discovered our old roommate/landlord/friend from Homer is on a discovery channel show.
We lived with him and a few other roommates a couple years ago before we moved up here to Wasilla. It was a great time in our life, Marty and I were very close with our 3 roomies. The house was a beautiful 2 story place with a ton of room on 6 acres. Don't get me wrong, I love our life here and what its become here in Wasilla - wouldn't trade it for anything but living with our buddies in that house was such a great time. I miss them all tons, we don't get to see them near enough.
Anyway, a lot of you know Jonathan Hillstrand. His son Scottie, who's also a good friend and almost went on this fishing trip sent this link. I think the show's called "Deadliest Catch", its about the commercial fishing industry. If you go to this page, Jonathan (who runs the Time Bandit) is on the 1st, 5th, & 6th videos. It was super exciting to see him in his element working but also a bit freaky. Those guys work so hard, in one of the most dangerous trades and the video clips give a good taste of what it's like. I've seen shows like this before but it becomes much more real and worry-some seeing someone you know in the midst of all that. There short clips, if you get the chance, check them all out.
Thanks for the link Scottie, I swear if I watched that 6th clip long enough I'd be sea sick sittin right here at the computer - I don't know how you guys do it!
