Well where to begin?
I guess we will start with the day my father told me he was born on and air force base in Anchorage Alaska. He was very excited because that meant he was entitled to land as a native because Alaska was not yet a state! Off he went with the dream of opening a claim and finding some gold! Although I never got to see this ground, I have seen the pictures of a younger version of him happy as dirty old prospector with a little yellow in the pan.
