Alaska Bob loves Alaska but Vegas Bob is disappointed with high prices For over 2 years now Alaska Bob has been visiting the beautiful state of Alaska ... The Last FrontierHiking, fishing, taking photographs, videos and even searching real estate properties in a very beautiful part of the world.Although Alaska has it's good points of beauty and wild life, Alaska is extremely expensive, overpriced in so many ways.As we have been driving around enjoying the beauty The Last Frontier had to offer, we would stop at gas stations along the way for a beverages, snacks, etc.Now prices at gas stations compared to grocery stores are more expensive, but these prices are outrageous. Not only are the gas station prices threw the roof, but most grocery stores also.Along with food being expensive, mote...

 Vegas Bob is ready for ALASKA with a (New) 35mm Camera That's right yesterday Saturday afternoon Vegas Bob was on the Internet shopping for a (New) camera.Vegas Bob aka Robert Swetz has 2 Nikon 35mm camera bodies along with around 7 different lens attachments for the cameras.  Well the Nikon cameras and lens are older, some of the lens are dirty and need to be cleaned. So Vegas Bob has been wanting a new camera for many years! And why didn't Vegas Bob buy another Nikon camera which he can attach his 7 different lens to? Because 35 years ago when Vegas Bob started taking photographs he used Canon cameras, so it's time for a change.  While Vegas Bob was shopping the web for new cameras he found a smoking deal ... New Canon Camera, with 2 different lens, one 18 x 55mm lens, one 75 x 300mm...

I would add to it that the reason I joined Homes for Heroes is because our heroes should be rewarded for their tireless efforts and if I can help them achieve their dreams of homeownership by offering a discounted method to get them there I am privileged to do so.  My father is a retired military veteran serving our country for 22 years and I appreciate everything that the military provides and the ongoing service that law enforcement, firefighters, teachers and healthcare workers selfishly offer. Thank you so much.

 Snow cap Mountains over Alaska ...Here is just one photo of the hundreds of thousands of huge snow cap mountains in the state of Alaska.When I flew out of Anchorage the other day the skies were clear and I could see for miles & miles across the horizon. The views were breath-taking and it just made me appreciate the total beauty of Alaska.I totally believe that God has sold me on the beauty of Alaska and for some reason I keep being pulled back by it's beauty. It's nice being back in Las Vegas with family and friends but I keep looking for those snow cap mountains I see everywhere I look while I am in Alaska ;o)

What's going to be Robert Swetz's next move? After spending 4+ months in the beautiful state of Alaska, I am really unsure about my next move.I have been asked to work on a construction project in Silicon Valley for the next 2 years but it's not something I have to do.I have all my real estate businesses in Las Vegas taken care of by associates so I am not concerned about this either.I seem to be getting at that age where I just want to relax, go hiking and take drives across the beautiful state of Alaska.I feel that life is to short to sit in traffic down in the lower 48, life is to short to sacrifice the beauty of Alaska for ???I have been out of the fast lane now for so long that I am really scared about going back to the rat race.I have not really made any definite decisions on whet...
