Boy with a dream!

When my son was about 4 yrs old he decided the most exciting job to have as an adult would be a tent salesman in a sporting good store. But when we moved to Alaska when he was 8yrs old he decided it would be even more exciting to fish for a living... When he was in high school there were lots of good paying jobs for teenagers because all the men were working on the Alaskan pipeline. When other boys were saving for a car, he was saving for a riverboat.... Right out of high school he was living in a tiny camp trailer by the Kenai river and taking tourists on the river to fish.... He never let go of that dream....32 years later he owns that lodge and still fishes for a living. As a bonus he found the perfect wife and helpmate in lovely Vivian.....

Below is the lodge site...
