    Panning for Gold in Alaska

    As part of Prince Cruises #FollowMeAtSea Alaska Twitter trip, we took an excursion to the Eldorado Gold Mine to do a little panning for gold. Our tour was conducted by a Fiddle playing conductor who entertained us with songs and a wonderful narration of the history of  the Alaskan gold rush. The Eldorado Gold Mine employs a colorful cast of characters who showed us how to pan for gold. Once you see a few of the shiny nuggets in your [...]

    Alaska ~ Duck Farts and Saddle Sores

    There was no shortage of entertainment on our Alaska Twitter trip sponsored by Princess Cruises.  After returning from an incredible helicopter ride and glacier landing, we attended a fun filled dinner theatre.  The same wait staff who served our BBQ, were the cast members in the musical, “The Music of Denali”. Somehow the cast coaxed me up on stage – thankfully for the audience they didn’t ask me to sing anything. I just had to sit there and look good:) [...]

Last year, James Andrews, a vice-president at the PR firm Ketchum flew to Memphis to talk to employees at FedEx (FDX), one of the agency’s largest clients, about digital media. Shortly after arriving in Memphis, [...]

  • Alaska ~ Denali by Rail

    Alaska ~ Denali by Rail

    Our day began on rail with a train ride from Fairbanks to Denali. After a wonderful breakfast (Reindeer sausage and salmon burrito) aboard the train, we went upstairs to the glass covered rail car where we took in the breathtaking scenery. Our tour guides were incredibly knowledgeable of Alaskan history and geography. They always seemed to know exactly where we were as they give us notice of various photo opportunities in advance. We saw a HUGE beaver dam, lots of cool [...]
