I have just taken a new job in Great Falls, Montana. A new state and new areas to explore.

OK OK, I can take a hint. I always thought it would be my decision at some point to stop the blog. It turns out was somebody else’s choice. If I cannot post photos, and if I cannot write the blog, I have run out of interest in doing anything else on WU.
Turns out there are other sites that are glad to let me do what I enjoy. Right now DISQUS seems to be a good place for the blog and commenting. While I will post a few pictures there, I am not crazy about them disappearing in a week. FLICKR is a good place to post the photos, and I am already getting people following me.
Making the switch can be a hassle, but most of you have figured out how to get past the initial glitches that come up. I really hope everyone who wants to follow can do so. Basically, this is the gist of this last blog. No sense in spending much time here at this point.
This particular blog will be updated and modified up until early April when it will be frozen in time. I will give all links to where I am going. Links may not work after that, but they will still be posted.
I have had a great time meeting all of you, especially the few of you I met in person. This is not a goodbye. It is just a posting of where we meet next.
I hope that is soon.
Joealaska is dead.
Thanks to all for your participation!
I am posting blogs at DISQUS.COM. I have a channel there called MONTANA BACK ROADS. My name there is "formerlyjoealaska."
On Facebook I am Joe Troje where I post photos.
On YOUTUBE I have hundreds of videos. If you go back to April of 2013 or before, it is all Alaska. You will find me there as Jayempty.
Here is the address to my FLICKR account where I will post most of my photos. My name on Flickr is "jayempty1". www.flickr.com/photos/123722234@N07
(Google "jayempty1 Flickr")
joealaska may be dead, but he is thriving on the internet. Just google "joealaska" (ONE WORD) and you should get one of my photos. You can follow the trail from there. I wonder if my photos will remain on the internet after WU deletes them?
