The Brooks range is one of the most spectacular true wilderness areas in AK. This is why I continue to go there and can't get enough. Have hiked in 20 miles off the Haul road near Atigun Pass and floated the mighty Kongakut river to the Beaufort sea. Heading there next year again. Thanks for posting your experience.

Are the pics not there?   It totally shows them from my end.   Lol, i'm not all that tech savvy.  What do I need to do to make them show up?

Does anybody have an idea of why when I attach the photos they don't always show up and sometimes my post doesn't even go through.

Photobucket now charges for the use of their hosting site, so if you're not paying for it, they won't let you share your photos.

If your post isn't going through, it probably means the photo files are too big. Usually this ends up in a white screen and no post.

I changed all my photos to be hosted by Flicker now that Photobucket has screwed everyone.
Founders for militia definition: ..[T]he unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people. The Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788. No founder is on record arguing with this definition - many support it. Then there's Patrick Henry: "I ask, sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people.

That is exactly what is happening. How do I shrink my photos?

@Kazekurt
You need to resize them. There are some apps that will do it, or some software that will do it if you're posting from a computer. I use the Tapatalk app on my phone to post on the forum, which resizes automatically for you. Really, it asks you what size you want the pics posted at. I don't ever have to manually resize my photos so honestly I don't know how to do it. @Bob33 maybe could chime in here.

copy your picture then use the copy. Right click Open with "paint". Then on the resize click pixels then input something 1000 or less on horizontal it will automatically change the other box. Then you can upload from your computer. Then "save"

I've never had a bad trip to AK, but some have definitely gone smoother than others😀  He is very fortunate to have a dad that is a taxidermist and was with us on the trip.  His dad told him he would, "kick his A$#" if he didn't lifesize it.  The coolest thing is that I'll get to watch his dad work on it and we may even incorporate a ptarmigan my dad shot into the mount.

I will definitely try to get some pics when it's finished.  His dad hasn't started it yet as he's trying to get some work finished for some of his  customers but I know he's really looking forward to doing it!
