What really happened to Robert Vegas Bob Swetz?

That's a good question so let me explain it to you ...

I joined the ActiveRain network back in 2008, along with Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and several other Social Media platforms.

Over the last 10 years I posted 2-3 blogs per day at ActiveRain and other networks. Within 3 years of doing this I reached the number one page at Google at the top of the page with the name VEGAS BOB when searched.

I was hooked and loved expressing myself within ActiveRain and formed 25 different groups at ActiveRain with many associates and friends.

Over the last several years I have been pulling back and not blogging like I use to. Number one on the top page of Google doesn't really mean much to me anymore. I told myself I would do it, did it and now I am laying low.

I feel I have pushed out enough information and photos within the Internet to last a life time ...

Since 2015 Alaska has become my new love of life and I can't get enough of the beauty of Alaska so I have been buying investment properties for future retirement.

So the old Vegas Bob everyone knows within ActiveRain is laying low and spending as much time as he can in Alaska.

So that being said, you can still call me Vegas Bob or Alaska Bob because I like both the names ;o)

Bob - That is a stunning landscape pictured there!  I think we all mature to a point where points, or visibility aren't as important to us anymore.  I think the pandemic has given many of us an opportunity to reassess what it is we are doing with our time, and our lives.  

I will say this also.  With the slowness of AR lately, and the 504s, etc., I notice when I Google my name, NONE of my AR posts are even listed.  Ditto for my profile or blog!  I guess even Google got frustrated with things lately!

Hi Alaska Bob, aka Robert Vegas Bob Swetz - I am glad I had the opportunity to meet you when you were traveling through Sedona years ago. I look forward to your images.  I made one big trip to Alaska in 2003 at the end of August.  I was so surprised to see the sunrise and sunset change by 15 to 20 minutes every day.  We visited a few areas, took a glacier helicopter ride, and landing on a glacier, as well as the same with a seaplane ride and landing, train ride, and Glacier Bay excursion.  All very exciting trips.  17 years ago and I soon won't forget it.  Downside...didn't get to see the Northern Lights.  This is still on the bucket list!

Can I still call you "VB"? I don't remember using any other nickname than that on AR. In '08 I had been here almost 2 years and seem to have been commenting on your posts all along, maybe not all of your posts however, thoughts have been shared on many.  BTW if I guess correctly that that pic is looking across the Cook Inlet will that better my odds?
