Career Change

By the spring of 2005 I teamed up someone I considered a friend to clean oceanic trash off Alaska's coastline. Yes, I became a garbage man! We formed up a non-profit group and went for it. I was involved with the group until the fall  of 2012 when I learned that my so-called friend was not a friend at all. As I continue on with the rest of my history, I will not mention this groups name. But I had the time of my life cleaning up the very places that I loved and used so much. This particular summer was the start of the cleanups and here are a few photos.

Bryn always found a use for the nets

Off the beaches and bound for the dumpsters

Nets Everywhere

Knight Island was a much cleaner place when we were done
