Special Thanks to Rhonda for love, support, and encouragement; and for

Many thanks also to Clifford Hunt for artwork, legwork, ideas,
baby-sitting, technological expertise, and, most of all, your friendship.
Thank you to Mike Lane for inspiring the concept;
to Daniel Picazo and Knute Tonga for the tracks, time and talent;
to Pat DeSmet for the DAT dubs;
to Pete Twitchell for bringing Bobby Gregory over;
to Michael Gage for the motorcycle ride;
to Ernie Petito at Warner/Chappel for making I Been Everywhere in Alaska possible;
to C. Carson Parks for allowing me to Bethelize his song;
and to the Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corporation for after-hours use of computers.

I cannot say how much I appreciate the musicians who contributed their talents to
this project. To them is due all credit for the surprising range of flavors in these
recordings. I hope you guys had fun. You are true pros!

Starting the Kuskokwim 300.
