LIVE THREAD = "Sarah Palin's Alaska" - WEEK 7 - TLC 9/8C -LOGGER FOR A DAY!
TLC & SARAH PALIN'S FACEBOOK ^ | DECEMBER 26, 2010 | TLC/SARAH PALIN

Posted on 12/26/2010 5:29:16 PM PST by onyx

Follow Me There... to Afognak Island!

Come along on another Alaskan adventure as we profile amazingly hard workers in the timber industry. Loggers are hearty and hardy, and the ones I know are true conservationists. I cant wait for you to meet these lumberjacks!



During this Christmas season, do you ever wonder where you get many of your Christmas trees, firewood, packing boxes shoot, just look around at everything timber touches and ask yourself who begins the production of these wood products? Youll meet them on an exciting trip to an Afognak Island logging camp where our daughter learns even more about our familys #1 lesson: tough work ethic and character will fulfill and sustain you.



Learn how the logging families live in such a remote part of Gods country and how they cherish the land that provides their livelihood. Youll see how their reforestation efforts allow the forest regrowth rate to repeat a life cycle of new forest nearly every 20 years. These loggers actually care more about the sustainability of their forests than most anyone because they love their livelihood, they know America relies on our domestic timber industry for good jobs and economic security, they are inspired in the great outdoors, and many of them want their kids to get to grow up to be loggers. Basically, the good folks youll meet want to be allowed to do what they love to do and what anyone who lives among lumber and wood products rely on them to do for us.



In addition, come see Willows eyes open to a new rugged and rustic lifestyle. Her driving skills improve (?) before she undertakes a familys rite of passage with an upcoming drivers license test. Any parent can relate.



With only a couple more episodes to share, I promise you a fun and informative episode of Sarah Palins Alaska this Sunday night at 9pm ET/8c on TLC. Follow me there!



You can watch a preview of the episode

I almost forgot the show was on today. With Christmas being on a Saturday, today feels more like a Friday than a Sunday. Looking forward to tonight’s episode!

I can almost imagine how tired you must be...emphasis on *almost* and to think you’re due at work at 11:00PM. UGH. I’m really looking forward to this episode and it’s sad there’s only one remaining after tonight’s. Afognak Island looks interesting! Have you been there?

Hi onyx! We are snowed in here in CT. So windy and so much snow can’t tell what is going on outside. Dog keeps wanting to go out we just keep saying “snow” and she turns around and lays down.
Love Sarah’s show so much. Will miss it terribly when the episode ends but for tonight it is perfect!

“Gee, I wonder what Sarah will find to do in 2011?”

As a Clairvoyant, I would said run for the presidency.

Your dog is so sweet! She knows what the word *snow* means! I love it and just read your comments to my husband. LOL.

McGruff lives in CT, too, and said this to me on another thread...LOL.

Shoveled a path for the dog to go out and do her duty just now and it’s coming down at a high rate right now it Connecticut. This could be a big one if that rate keeps up.

JFK is also closed. The Giants are stuck in Green Bay.... and they lost to the Packers, too.

No children at the logging site. Too dangerous.
