Skip to comments.LIVE THREAD = "Sarah Palin's Alaska" - WEEK 7 - TLC 9/8C -LOGGER FOR A DAY!
Posted on 12/26/2010 5:29:16 PM PST by onyx
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 hope members who are quick with cameras can capture some screen shots to post here! *hint*
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!
Thank you for the thread. It looks great. :)
I’m in and looking forward to it.
Today doesn’t feel like Sunday... you’re right.
I’ll be back in a few minutes. Have to get FOOD.
I’m at a relative’s house, and I’ll try to keep up...:)
We’re kind of snowed in at our relative’s house.
Looks like with all the photos available, you could have found an attractive one....LOL...does this lady have any “bad” pictures? This one is fantastic! Thanks!
Thank you so much for taking the time to do this thread every week. I am going to miss the show once the eight episodes are up.
I’m a beat puppy today, hope to make it through the whole episode. Have to work at 11.
Hi Jem and Dr.Scarpetta!
You’re snowed-in at a relative’s home!
I know others are in the same fix!
I ate too many cookies here!!
We have had a fairly eventful weekend. Good stuff and it just keeps on coming.
Happy Sunday night!
I guess this logger episode is for the “greenies” to get mad at her...lol.
Thank God I brought my laptop!!!
Oh, your tagline....LOL.
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?
I know... already week 7!
Gee, I wonder what Sarah will find to do in 2011?
Laptop and cookies = you’re all set! Nice relatives have TV.
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!
I didn’t give you up by name...I just hinted at it!
Oh my. To this G.R.I.T.S., that does not look good.
Thanks for the ping. God bless you for all you do.
“Gee, I wonder what Sarah will find to do in 2011?”
As a Clairvoyant, I would said run for the presidency.
Sarah would call you a wimp! ;-)
I thank God every day for G.R.I.T.S.
Just saw the camping one with the stuck up blond. Sarah is so awesome no matter what she is doing. Always in charge as well.A born leader.
New Jersey declares state of emergency due to snow storm
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 its coming down at a high rate right now it Connecticut. This could be a big one if that rate keeps up.
Thanks for all the Sarah pings. The shows are just priceless, as is she.
LOL thats nothin a snow blower won’t fix. I still have 10 inches on the ground and it hasn’t snow in a week. Buffalo NY area.
It’s my pleasure and honor and I’m thrilled you’re on Sarah Palin’s Ping List!!!
Bless your heart.
I’m ready for logging!
Woo-Hoo! Thanks very much, Clairvoyant Clyde!
New episode coming on SHORTLY!
LOLOL. Yeah right. I’ve been looking at at all the tough guys from VA on the local highway webcams this afternoon...not.
LOL. That’s Kate.
See ThreePuttinDude’s tagline....LOL.
You got a lot more than we did so far. Only about an inch here in N.Baltimore County.
Piper’s death stare. LOL
Refudiate instead of repudiate. HAHA Turned out to a real new word with meaning.
So they are near Kodiak Island this week?
Less than 100 air miles from my house...WooHoo!
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.
Thanks for the ping. I, too, had kind of lost track that today was Sunday. Hard to believe this is week 7.
Todd is so good looking. Thudd!
Never been there or to Kodiak, I have however been to Unalaska. Not many trees there.
Yes! Love that Piper!
