Tom’s official handle is Ice Man. Remember Val Kilmer in Top Gun? I have to remind him that there is no hazard great enough to warrant the helmet in the Lazy Boy. Although we are close enough to the airport runway to feel the big jets take off and land. Tom is waiting for the Ice to leave the lakes in Anchorage so he can complete his float plane rating. This will probably happen next week. He’s been on a few aerial bird surveys and everyone is busy getting gear out to the study camps for summer projects. So the Ice Man is waiting for the ice to go out!
