I think it is about time I explain my blog name. Sometime ago I was investigating this old building by the Matinuska River in Palmer Alaska. I was so excited that I talked to the owner about it. He allowed me to go in and check out the place. I wanted to turn the place into a luxury B&B. It didn't turn out, the owner backed out of negotiations and I was unable to secure funds. I would have been able to Finish the project with $1 mil. Unfortunately nobody had the vision that I saw in this place like I did. I wasn't supported outside of my immediate family. I still have the mind set to do a B&B but it will have to wait obviously until after I retire. I have one year left and then I am throwing in the towel. I will be done with my Masters in Management too.
I have a lot of exciting things going on in the near future. I can hardly wait. I look forward to returning to my family from the PI and spending lost time with them, then I will get in to all these future endeavors that I am planning.
One thing that I have always wanted to do is write a book. You may have noticed that I do a fair job on this blog. But I am currently in the final stages of a children's bed time story. I can't wait till it is done and out on the streets. You will have to look for it on Lulu.com. Rochelle is doing the art work for the book. She is very good at that. In fact she sketched the B&B as it would have looked when completed on a poster board when I presented my idea to the top dog at Alaska USA. He basically said come back when you have grown up. The proposed B&B is at the foot of the mountain that you see in the picture it is called Lazy Mountain. You can go back in the history of this blog and see all the fun I had when that was going on in my life. I believe March time frame of 08.
That in a nut shell is why my blog is named INN The Wilderness.
