74 Acre Patented Mining Claim 8 miles from Nome

This is a pretty cool property, and not just because it’s got the full bundle of rights…I personally would love to buy it just to subdivide it, it’s beautiful, has a nice trail wandering across it, some creeks, and views of Sledge Island.

It’s about 8 miles on the Blodgette highway, a little ways past the Snake River. If you’re a local I bet you’ve explored the trail, picked berries, or snowmobiles there.

Give me a call or send me an email if you would like more information.


Nome Sweet Homes for pets

I recently stumbled upon an article discussing ways to build your house to be more suitable for your pets. The article discussed small features in homes to enable cats to better travel through the house. These types of modifications appear rather simple and fun.

Maybe architecturally changing a home to fit a pet is a step too far?
If so, how about other modifications to the home? I know I have seen the plywood ‘cover’ on parts of the step grates to make it more gentle on Rover’s paws.

I built my bed extremely high off the ground so my 80 pound husky would have a cozy ‘cubby’ for sleeping.

Have you tried any modifications that have failed? Succeeded? Would you consider architectural modifications to your home in order to make it more suitable for your pet?


Ice Ice baby!

I finally had a chance to watch the new Bering Sea – Under the Ice show. I was pretty tickled to see that there were some local Nome folks on the show.

I hope there is more focus on the real people of Nome and less attention to the ridiculous fiascos of the Reidell’s and that horrid Meisterhiemer character!

A big wave to Ricky, Joe and Jacob!


White Lines

Kudo’s to the road maintenance crews for getting the lines (relatively) strait!  I love seeing a those white lines, marking off where the cars can go and where the foot traffic belongs, and I hope we get lots more of them.

The foot traffic seems to have gotten a little out of control lately;  people walking down the road without a care in the world, like there are no cars in Nome! I understand that this town could use a few more yards (ok miles!) of actual sidewalk, but it seems that walking BESIDE the road would just make much more sense from a safety point of view.

Thanks guys, you did a great job!
