Every time Robert Swetz visits Alaska he goes through a transition
 
Robert Vegas Bob Swetz has been visiting Alaska off and on for 2 years now! Sometimes for 1 week, 2 weeks, 2-3-4 and even 5 months during this time.
There seems to be something going on between myself and Alaska that I can't grasp. When I'm in Alaska it's so different than the Lower 48, more relaxed and something that creates some change within my mind.
There is nothing wrong with this change, I like it and these types of thoughts really don't seem to cross my mind unless I visit Alaska.
Last year I … (18 comments)

4 Days and Counting before Vegas Bob goes to Alaska
 
Robert Vegas Bob Swetz is counting down the days and Saturday 8/20/2-16 makes it number 4 before his return to the Last Frontier.

Robert Vegas Bob Swetz has a New name - Mr Positive
 
For some reason since Vegas Bob spent 5 months in Alaska from November 2015 to May 2016, he is not the same person he was years ago.

I have been getting all my ducks in a row as I prepare to go to Alaska, but with my mind racing last evening it was very difficult to sleep ;o(
I am overwhelmed with thoughts of cold, snow, etc and it frightens me.

I love the spring, summer, fall months but I am getting cold feet when it comes to spending time in The Last Frontier during the winter.
My wife, bless her heart keeps telling me that I will be much more successful and … (18 comments)
