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
~ Sarah Palin
Do you happen to know when this episode was filmed?
Number one new word for 2010!
We had a dusting of snow early this morning and you only have an inch!
You’re nearby, huh?
I did a search for the island and found that map I posted so we would sort of know where she went in tonight’s episode.
A new word from a typo. The power of Palin! lol
The Learning Channel was an appropriate venue for the show.
There is no way that Todd Palin could live in Washington. There is no way their children could happily live under the microscope, if living in Washington. The Palin's life is Alaska in exchange for living in the White House would be like taking fish out of water--I don't care how good the parenting skills.
I would not wish the presidency on such an out doorsy-active, close & loving family!! The ugliness that NOW surrounds the presidency from within supported by their teeth bared media dingos calls for a tough Hatcher or Meir type..no more Mr/Ms Nice with a family that can end up as collateral damage!! It's an Ugly world in Washington even for an Alaskan.
Really enjoy the show and understand the episodes/documentaries will be or are for sale?
Football games on TV reminded me today is Sunday. Church yesterday through me off, and we didn’t attend to today.
Maybe in inch so far and I’m good with that after last year. It looks like the Eastern Shore is getting dumped on though.
He wanted Sarah to sign his chain-saw and of course she did!
I love it!
She’s my girl. Look at her with that chainsaw,,,. I’d like to see someone ask her what she thinks about a “jobless recovery”.
We thought about shoveling a spot for the Westie but couldn’t get the door open. Wind coming from every direction, around 28 mph.
Lovin’ this show.
That is exactly the type of person we need in DC. Someone who wants to fulfill their service,committed to helping their country and getting the heck out.
We have enough politicians who like DC just a bit too much. They’ve made a career out of it.
As far as I know, all the episodes were filmed during this past summer.
Er, that sign should be “less than.”
Enjoy the show. Comes on here in about 3 hours. Can’t wait!!
< = less than
you’re correct, aren’t you?
I got the feeling that the guy who asked her to sign his chainsaw must be a fan:)
Sarah Palin is a dingbat... She is so egotistical that her daughters are all sleeping around and blowing her off as a parent. I watched Sarah Palin’s Alaska. Her kids lie to her face and she let’s them get away with it. They blow her off when she tells them to do stuff, and she let’s them get away with it. Boys go running upstairs to her daughter’s room and Sarah and Todd do nothing. D-I-N-G-B-A-T. She can’t run her house, how do we expect her to run our country? Forget-about-it.
Bear spray? We know what happens to people that use ‘bear spray’...
They're wearing jackets again. I guess when we have the FR summertime cruise to Alaska, we'll need warm clothes...:)
It was around when Sarah type “refudiate”.
Yep, church on Fri & Sat threw me off, too. I did want to comment during the commercial that all of the college age youth at our Christmas dinner love this show. Love it. They are apolitical for the most part, but, they connect with this show. I was gobsmacked when THEY brought it up.
TLC has had the series for sale at the linked site for several weeks, but it’s $29.95. amazone.com will have it available and likely at a much lower prices. I have TIVO’d the episodes, but I plan to buy the DVD’s when they’re available on amazon or at Walmart etc.
Hi, how you doing up there?
Hope wife is safe in CA!
I agree. Wasn’t that great?? He was cool,, but you could tell he was pumped about it.
What a brave woman this lady is, to go on TV with her family, especially young people who may or may not respond as expected....
I love her, Todd’s a lucky man, and a patient one as well...
At this time of night, I’m not sure. I put in the html for “less than.”
Why exactly, may I ask, are you in this thread?
We can smell your fear. lol
It’s another GOOD show! Logging... I can almost smeel the freshly cut wood. No kidding!
Did she just get boosted up by her tushie? LOL
Do you have any kids of your own?
eat crap ahole
Great minds, Dr.
......on a side note...............
.....yesterday, Christmas day.........ole Ted Kennedy hit his 16th month clean and sober
way to go Ted !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Picking up that log! I wonder if it is anything like trying to grab that toy in that vending maching outside Wal Mart. Y’all know the one, where there is always that one toy your kid really wants but you drop it just before you get it to the chute. LOL!
Where are those knuckleheads who don’t like seeing Sarah doing men’s work? LOL
LOL. Hi there, concern troll. Has it occurred to you that Sarah Palin could edit the series to present an unrealitic view of her children and family?
Thanks very much for watching Sarah Palin’s Alaska. Too bad you have missed the greater messagees and viewed the series through DU eyes. Your loss.
So, you're a masochist who regularly wears 'kick me' signs on their rear?
Strange fetish, but don't worry. Folks around here will oblige....with relish!
LOL! The concept seems similar, but, I was SO nervous for her. Unlike the claw thing where I KNOW I will drop it.
That’s almost like a small tug boat.
Your first post in five months and this is the best you can do?
LOL. I think so!
hattend, this is another beautiful area of beautiful Alaska!
You know, this woman is good for business.
Get lost, troll.
Somehow, I just don’t picture President and Mrs Obama doing anything remotely close to any of this. How can people not love this family?
A drive by Trolling? LOL!
