Once upon a time, Dale Brandenburger wrote dark fiction. It was when he relaxed and began to incorporate the humor he saw around him into his writing, however, that he came into his own.

Electricity produced by water power is not a recent development in Alaska. A number of Southeast mines and sawmills in Southeast depended on waterfalls. One of these sawmills was located in Pavlof Harbor on Chichagof Island. Boats reached this bay by way of Freshwater Bay, which indents the island's east coast. Pavlof Harbor is located near the bay's mouth on the southern shore.

HAINES - Sitting in the back of an open pickup truck amid shards and strands and stalks and tailings of hay, my feet pressed against one side of the muddy truck bed, my hands and back against the other, bumping down a dirt road, the wind rushing past doing nothing to dilute the smell of some animal that may have ridden where I did ... I was on my way to the fair!

Being an avid local craft beer lover, I chase beer festivals with abandon. No, I haven't been to every annual beer festival in the state, but those that I haven't visited are high on my must-attend list.

Many in Southeast Alaska may not remember the Grumman Goose amphibian plane. After World War II, this was the workhorse of air travel to remote Alaska villages. Larger towns in Southeast had no landing fields and relied on airplanes that could land on water. An airfield on Annette Island, built during the war, was changed to civilian use. The Grumman Goose ferried jet passengers to Ketchikan's waterfront. (I didn't forget the PBY amphibian planes that also carried passengers. That's for another time.)

I like spruce beer. Some drinkers think it sucks, and I understand that.
