A Friendly Place to Visit.

Boomer and Lady Hello and Welcome!

I see Boomer and Lady Susitna brought you up the path to the cabin. They love greeting all our visitors. Sometimes we can hear them coming up the hill and can get the cabin ready for company before they arrive. If you would like to meet and learn more about them visit: Boomer's Page.


porch

You can sit here on the porch, while I go get something to drink and a snack. What would you like to have? We have tea, coffee, or soda? I just made some cookies and we can have those too. The Heartland Edition is on the swing if you would like to read it. I'll be right back.


Susitna Cabin usually sits beside a lake with a pond and meadow behind the cabin, and mountains across the lake. But! this is a Cybercabin named for an Eklutna Indian story about a princess who turns into a mountain waiting for her lover to return. Therefore, the cabin has very imaginative powers and can be moved in the blink of an eye. Since Sharon is inspired by the writings of author and adventurer Richard Halliburton -- the cabin could show up anywhere! The descriptions of the scenery and weather conditions will be inspired by imagination and/or past memories. There will be no pictures or links so you may feel free to create your own adventure. The cabin will always return to the lake, where it belongs, before the next trip so you can will be able to find it and tag-a-long if you wish.

Scenes from the cabin. Picture this: A young girl sitting on a stool in front of her beloved grandfather. He is reading to her from one of his favorite books.

The grandfather had always wanted to travel but because of finances he was unable to go on any real adventures. So he traveled as many did in his time through books. He read all the Richard Halliburton books he could find, as well as the wonderful adventures of Frank Buck's Bring Em Back Alive, and the adventures of Ola and Martin Johnson in Africa.

His love of all this was given to his granddaughter and she learned to enjoy the wonders of the world. Now she is a gradmother herself and enjoys sharing these books with her grandchildren as well as others.

Watch this space in the coming months as the Susitna Cabin Crew travel to different places to see just what we can find out in our great world. It won't be as it is now but as it was when these books were written.

We had a great time in Tampa Florida during the Gasparilla Pirate Fest. Would you like to learn more about it?

AND THEY ARE OFF!!!! The 2002 Iditarod Race has started in Anchorage, Alaska.

Iditarod The Iditarod Trail Race -- The Spirit of Alaska will run from Anchorage thru: Eagle River - mile 20, Wasilla - mile 49, Knik - mile 63, Yentna Station - mile 115, Skwentna - mile 149, Finger Lake - mile 194, Rainy Pass - mile 224, Rohn Roadhouse - mile 272, Nikolai - mile 365, McGrath - mile 413, Takotna - mile 436, Ophir - mile 474, Cripple - mile 534, Ruby - mile 646, Galena - mile 698, Nulato - mile 750, Kaltag - mile 803, Unalakleet - mile 892, Shaktoolik - mile 932, Koyuk - mile 990, Elim - mile 1,038, Golovin - mile mile 1,066, White Mountain - mile 1,084, Safety - mile 1,139, and end under the arch on Front Street in Nome. The race is 1,161 miles long.

The race was first run in 1973 and my children and I watched as the proud dogs moved down the race trail with their tails held high. They seemed to know that something special was starting that day. Twenty-two competitors finished the race that year. Today the race begins again with seventy-three listed starters of all ages and walks of life, each excited about the race to Nome, but none as excited as the dogs are to be doing what they were born to do - race with their team and driver.
In order to support the race people were given a chance to own a very small part of land by Mt Susitna in return for a donation. I don't know what happened to the certificate but I do remember the quilt piece size of land was ours and we had helped start something that has continued to this day. I am very proud to have been there and I am proud today of the work that is done during the race. Several health issues have been found during the races that have helped non-racing dogs as well as the teams. The dogs on the teams are looked after first before the mushers can care for themselves. Every concern that can be addressed is thought out in advance and if something comes up during the race it is taken care immediately. Those that race and work the sidelines are caring animal lovers.
GO TEAMS!!!! Race well and we will see you under the arch in Nome!!

NOTICE: NOME, Alaska (AP) -- Doug Swingley won the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race on Wednesday, 14 March 2001, for the third straight year, completing a 1,100-mile trip through the Alaska wilderness. Who will win in 2002?

The last race results may be found at Iditarod Headquarters.

FAMILY GENEALOGY AND HISTORY

We are scanning the pictures and gathering the information together from our trip to Leadville, Colorado where we researched Sharon's greatgrandparents.
We have pictures of many parts of Colorado, as well as areas of our family interest.

Sharon received her greatgrandparent's Marriage Record from the Courthouse in Leadville. They were married by a Justice of the Peace on 4 April 1877, in Lake County, Colorado. The County Recorder was Joseph H. Wells, so Sharon's Greatgrandfather recorded his own marriage to Mollie Elizabeth Roach!

Hope you will stop back again and see what we found.

NOTE!! We have recently received a wonderful package of family history that is being cataloged and will be posted very soon.

We Have have finished the information on TOWARD CASTLE In Scotland and the Toward family and it should also be posted very soon.
