Default another AAA trip

another Iditarod in the books three trips to Solomon racked up 90 miles another ,35 with a national geographic photographer, up to cripple river for a photo safari , some 15 trips to banner peak to photograph the muskox, and several trips to safety .You can see in the pics one trip to Solomon was a AAA trip to repair a chevy truck with pod tracks, it sucked laying there in 20 mph winds at -10 changing a tie rod, but who else would do it. got another trip, im planning for next summer to go up to deering to recover an old halftrack at a mine and get it out to the beach for a barge company to pick up kind of my donation to our local museum. sounds like the stuff tv is made of the other guys always get the bucks for it.

It does that if you upload too many at once. I have found success by doing 2 at a time. After the box clears do 2 more. Takes awhile if you have a lot of pics but it works.
