Another Very Enjoyable Alaskan: Mike Dunham

Mike Dunham writes for the Anchorage Daily News and interviewed me for an upcoming article, which is pretty ridiculous because I am not even remotely as interesting as Mike Dunham and I'd rather read an article about Mike than about me. Proof of Mike's "interestingness" becomes obvious when checking out the photo below... which is not of Mike. It's a photo of Henry Matthews of Quinhagak, who was the mail carrier that brought Mike Dunham his mail. Mike grew up in a place where mail was received once a week via dog sled.
