My legal problems are still with me, as I still await retrial. Its been over 2 years now, and even with the felony evidence tampering and purgery the two Alaska State Troopers committed against me,and are well known http://www.thearcticsounder.com/article/1249noorviks_hailstone_sentenced_seeks_appeal I await retrial and they work with the public......but my wife and daughter have progress Federally, but its best not posted. Getting the Audio Forensic Specialist scientific proof of tampering was the best money I ever spent. Im glad the Judge did an about face when I present it at sentencing, and Ive been free, no bail, awaiting this retrial decision. Gotta be patient and get the best out of this bad situation, so I wrote a book about it all. Might as well profit from the drudgery placed apon me. I too cannot wait for the day I pick up a rifle and get back with it again. Funny thing too, we watched the Season 4 episode 1 again tonight on the Youtube, and they certainly upped the number of shots taken. We see , plain to us, that both cameras were running along side and both got both cameras recoding shown, effectively doubling the number of shots fired ~~LOL!!~~ Editors and action shots, sometimes a shot or two and a commercial and then a recap beginning with the shooting....uuuugh. Commercials even rear their ugly heads on Youtube..... The Happy People is a most excellent show, I have watched it twice. They drive Skidoo, I drive Polaris As for gas, we use a drum and haul it out, make a camp and go back for a sled load of jerry jugs. The 55 Gallon barrels are the largest amount in one container that a body can manage.largest amount that dosent crush a sled too. We prefer the jerry jugs as they are much more manageable, but when we set up for a week or two, we bring the drum, then go back for a sled load of gas and what ever, then stay till the gas runs low, pack it up and go home. We use cache's for gas and to store furs, gear and such so we can make loads to a nearby village in stages or go home in "trips" back and forth till its all home. Sometimes we leave it all at a camp and get it months later, depending on what were doing. Its good to have food, gas ,clothing and a dry bed waiting for us. . Also we double up and leave the second ride at camp, weather were tenting or at one of our houses,we have trails to walk home and in our Winter grounds, we have a basic 22 mile loop we drive for trapping and use tents or a public shelter cabin nearby.. If we break down, were 11 miles at the furthest to walk back to a good ride, but sometimes we put the tent at the 1/2 way and shorten the potential walk.... we do, often, deviate while we hunt, but its the same basic areas we trap line on. The cabin is only a couple hours ride from a village, so its not too much to get it done, gas wise. We burn 5-10 gallons, depending on the day, on the days we ride. Bad weather has us stuck for longer than the gas can last too, so we bring grub along as well. We use two different kinds of sleds, a flat sled and a basket sled. The flat sled takes the weight of the gas, and things like fire wood logs, ice and frozen carcasses, while the basket sled is light and dosent drag as badly, carry's kids, old people and camp gear, so we often use the basket sled while getting the traps checked or traveling far, the flat sled for a firewood run or for moving carcasses and such. Then we tan the furs and the wife sews them into museum displays.We buy more gas. I cut and sell firewood 4 loads a day easy inna cold day, for 100$ a sled load and buy gas. My wife makes artwork and buys gas. People buy gas and trade us for fish and Caribou, legally. The chainsaw pays for itself a couple times over on the first day I use it. Ive posted many pictures on HR. We have no morgage, no loans or credit cards, no collage bills, no rent to pay, just pay and build/go/have//ride/fly or whatever.We own the land, house and everything we have outright.Our water/sewer/phone/internet/electricity runs about 600$ a month total. The gas for my snow go is about 85$ to fill the tank, and a quart of oil to go in it too makes it about 107$. A round trip to Kotzebue, the nearest "Town" is easy, with gas left over. If I flew round trip to Kotzebue, it would cost 360$, so the gas situation has always been important, but it is the most effective way to go, economically. Shipping doubles the price of everything. We make more money ourselfs than Nat Geo would ever pay. If something breaks while filming, BBC fixes it.The rest of the time, its us being ourselfs.
