As author Matthew Swanson, co-owner of Idiot books, found out, that can often mean figuring how to burn baby diapers using used motor fuel. It also means having not as much time to fish as one would like, but still having fun in Alaska.
“The truth is, I did not catch the fish pictured above. The truth is, I did not catch a single fish this summer. This summer I was ignobly consigned to the humble rank of the tundra domestic,” writes Swanson.
To Swanson, that means cooking, laundry, teaching the “wonders of nature” and quite few other tasks. Hopefully that includes fishing next year. –Brian McClintock
