Dan Thornton (pictured), pastor of Peninsula Grace Brethren Church in Soldotna, Alaska, and board chair of the Brethren Missionary Herald Co., keeps an interesting blog on Xanga.com. His current entry is about a recent moose-hunting trip. Here’s a sample:
Wind had died down so we moved early to the Moose Creek Trail. The cabin has long since burnt down leaving only the Sauna and the outhouse. Set up camp tarps. Started the Church of the Feather.
Breakfast at Moose Creek – Eggs, ham, fried potatoes, apricots
I hiked the first couple miles of Moose Creek Trail in the pouring rain, to see how difficult it was. Later the rain died down so we all checked out the Point Lake area, which looked promising.
Dinner – Salmon fillets (with butter, salt and pepper)
Jim was sleeping in the sauna. John and I were sleeping by the fire, I in my tent and John on a cot under the tarps. A huge brown bear didn’t like us camping near his salmon stream so he tried to scare us out of camp. We kept the fire going all night to keep the bear at bay.
