The last piece of this, is as the sun continues it daily journey.

And with that I now know more about the Kenai Peninsula than any east coast Canadian needs too
Should anyone not know the following interesting fact..........of all the states in The United States of America, one state is so huge that it is not only the most northern state, it is also the most eastern and western state in America. Eat your heart out Texas.

If Alaska was divided in half, Texas would drop to the 3rd largest state. Note: I love my friend from Texas. Just having fun! :)

Yes........Three Sunrises and Three Sunsets in the Morning and then in the West there is One more Sunrise and Two Sunsets in the Evening. And I have a fairly good source of water should "Both" of my water wells fail.

So do I have something that no one else has...........????

And "World Class" White water rafting and kayaking.

Alaska is on Both sides of "The International Dateline"........which separates east from west. So from the International Dateline, going east or west the first State of America you encounter is Alaska.

Seems like this is a resource waiting to be properly exploited.

I think I understand your disdain for other humans (which I share) but coule you develop a hunting lodge where you and the few other members if the community control all ot of the support systems as a tourest destination?

That answers my question but presents a bit of a quandary.

If tou were to fly from your place to the most easterly part of Alaska you would fly west?

Not a good location for a hunting/fishing lodge. It is ripe for a medium size hotel catering to many diverse interests........including Snow machining and Helicopter sking the back country in winter. Rafting and fishing and gold prospecting in the summer. There is still a lot of gold here.

I don't have a distain of humans. I like humans and I like Grizzly Bears.........I simply don't feel either one can be blindly "Trusted". My point is that in any anarchy SHTF eituation, best to be far-far-far from humans.

My renter has a sign in her house that reads...

Whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
Except bears. Bears will kill you.

In two weeks will be the one year ago my neighbor and friend of 23'ish years was killed and eaten in our backyard. A truly horrific way to die.

That was really entertaining to watch. There's no way I would have guessed that.

But I learned two new fun facts from it. So that's cool.

I have aspired to present myself as a tequila drunkard. But I actually wait till about an hour or two before bed to have a few hits. I like to do that outdoors in paradise. Even in the winter when it is horrific vile weather, the last chore of the day is too dump the Pee buckets ( large Folgers coffee cans). So in winter, I don't sit out in the 7 or 9 feet of snow for my evening drink after dumping the buckets. But in the summer, I love to spend the last few hours in my lawn chair, solving all of the worlds problems at no cost or charge to the world.

So after this contest ended........I was confused as to "Exactly" how many of each I was experiencing from my property. So I have concluded that sunrise can only be counter so long as the sun is still rising, therefore there are only three sunrises. But there are two sunsets. Last night was the end of my two sunsets for this year. I sat for a long time trying to figure out if I could extend the experience of two sunsets, by moving my chair either down the mountain or higher up the mountain. I concluded that moving the chair would position me too far from the tequila bottle, which is generally in the refrigerator, in the cabin. When I realized this I decided to be content with the end of the two sunsets shows for this year.

THANKS Everyone.........this was a fun contest.
