Put the kid in a red jacket on a front row and...





the Lumberjacks pick him to try out their artistry with a chain saw.

John however thought the chain saw was going after him! These guys were the nicest lumberjacks you would ever want to meet in a dark alley with chain saws though. They carved a small chair in just a matter of seconds, and then picked John out of the audience to 'sit' in it. After they were done, they gave John the chair.

The only catch was we had to get it home. It was over $50.00 to ship it home.

Next on the agenda for the day was the underwater boat. I should interject that when Dave was in high school, his "plan" was to become a Marine Biologist, work with the Jacques Causteau team on Calypso and eventually have his own ship.. (Really! :) His 'plan' however was derailed by a not-so-great advanced biology teacher in 11th grade. He then channeled his efforts into a bit more conventional and mundane Chemical Engineering path. Wonder what life would have been like on board the Calypso w/ two kids? lol.

So, needless to say, the adventures of the day were reflections back on past dreams for the big guy. The little guy got to hold and touch interesting creatures and learn about life at the Arctic edge.

Then, it was time for THIS
