This is probably hard to believe as there are quite a few "goofy" photos of me on this site, but I decided the photo showing me (and my friends) dressed up as Vegas show girls might have been a little too embarrassing, even for me.
I was trying to "dance for farkles" to see if Vegas would be more lucrative than Alaska. At least in the showgirl photo I didn't have my pants half-off!
The doll that I took skiing is Little Picu, the mascot for the company I work for. Little Picu traveled on one of our tugboats last summer, visiting numerous communities, and I posted photos of "The Adventures of Little Picu" on our Facebook page. It proved to be very popular. After the fuel delivery season was over I inherited Little Picu and our field guys didn't want much to do with the doll, so I took it backcountry skiing with me a few times and took photos.
