Off-Road And Huskies In Palin’s “Alaska”
This episode featured multiple things that I personally love: Going off-road in an all-terrain vehicle, hang out with old folks that can tell many tales (RIP “Bones”) and who doesn’t like digging for gold? I wish I could.
I was very impressed when she was on her studio speaking to Judge Napolitano on FOX News, because I remember that exchange. To see it from another angle, I was surprised that both things were happening at the same time. Yeah Todd, fixing a fish on the wall is above my paygrade too.
Alaska brought us another surprise: River rafting. I have seen it in Canada, and members of my family have done that here in the States. Governor Palin keeps pushing her limits when it comes to things like these. Tourism in Alaska will definitely skyrocket, because there is so much to do in Alaska!
Dog sledding is really a face-freezing adventure, and I could feel the energy of those Huskies with their desire to run. It is in their instinct, in their blood to do this job. Dogs aside, the glaciers are impressive on television; multiple members of my family that have gone to Alaska tell me pictures or TV don’t do justice.
Next episode airs on TLC, 9 pm ET.
