Did Robert Swetz capture UFO in a Cloud? Robert Swetz aka Vegas Bob has been taking photographs for over 35 years and when he comes across a strange object in the sky, he begins to wonder.I begin to wonder what that green ball is in the cloud? Could it be a UFO? Maybe some aircraft from another country? A drone?I have spent many late nights into early hours around AREA 51, parts of New Mexico and other states across the US looking into the sky. Looking at satellites, shooting stars and other moving objects. In fact several years ago when I was on the edge of AREA 51 by Rachel Nevada around midnight and I had my cameras, video camera and binoculars out looking into the sky. I was alone and all of a sudden cars and trucks started driving up to the same location from the east a couple hour...

 In 2 weeks Robert Vegas Bob Swetz will be fishing in Alaska Robert Swetz is getting very excited because in 2 weeks he will be with his family in Alaska fishing halibut in Homer Alaska.  I remember several months ago when I was booking a round trip flight from San Jose to Anchorage thinking I would have to wait forever, but now it's only 2 weeks away.  I am sure hoping the weather is going to be nice and sunny on my visit to Alaska because my wife mentioned it has been raining up in Anchorage everyday for almost 2 weeks.But even if it's raining I am going to have a great time and will be trying to catch that record halibut.Halibut can reach up to 400 lbs and I can't even imagine catching one this big. Word has it the best eating halibut are around 85 lbs and I am fishing to eat them so...

 Studying for the Alaska State real estate exam by Robert Swetz Robert 'Vegas Bob' Swetz once again is studying and has his nose in the book of the Alaska State Law portion for real estate. Robert was studying in spring of 2016 but was side tracked and unsure if he wanted to get licensed in another state to sell real estate.  Robert has the chance to make more money selling homes in Alaska then in the city of Las Vegas, and actually has future plans of selling homes in Homer Alaska 6 months out of the year and the other 6 months in Las Vegas Nevada.  This will in turn give Robert the opportunity to retire from the construction trade as a 'glazier' because the 35 years in the construction trade has taken a toll on Robert's body.  Here are some photos of homes I took in Anchorage, Palmer,...

  Robert Vegas Bob Swetz just finished booking his halibut charter for 6 people in Homer Alaska, which will take place around the end of August 2016.Robert Swetz is very excited and is flipping the whole bill on the charter which will be over $1000 dollars.   This price for a charter of 6 people is a smoking deal, they supply the poles, bate, cleaning of the fish, all except flash freezing into one pound vacuumed selling plastic.  Here's the way I see it ...Alaskan halibut sells for around $25 dollars per pound. There will be 6 adults fishing and the average halibut is around 50 lbs and can reach up to 400 lbs. Now I am looking at it with the average of 50 pound halibut minus 10 lbs of waste is approx. 40 lbs per fish times 6 = 240 lbs of fresh halibut meat.240 lbs x $25.00 is $6000.00....

The longer that I am done here the more I realized I've changed ... For 2 years I have been flying back and forth from the Lower 48 to Alaska, and I wasn't really effected by the change.But now after spending 5 months in Alaska I have noticed a big change in everything I do and the way I look at certain things. Life in general and the fastlane of everyday life.I am so relaxed about everything, chilled, content and many things just don't bother me like before.Even though I will be working for a while in California, I know I have found a new place in my life that I want to call home, and that would be Alaska.And as I get older when I'm retired and the cold of Alaska bothers me, I will stay in the Philippines, Myanmar or a warmer state in the Lower 48 and spend around 7 months out of the y...

Saint Lin standing by Lake Lucile in Wasilla Alaska 2014 Alaska Bob would like to wish Saint Lin a wonderful "All Saints Day" November 1st 2015. What better day to celebrate All Saints Day then the day following Halloween ;o) When I first married my wife Lin in Wasilla Alaska September of 2014 I had already knew she was a saint.

 There is a great possibility that Vegas Bob may be purchasing some wooded acreage in Homer Alaska soon! That's right, Vegas Bob has been looking at lake lots and vacant acreage around Willow, Wasilla, Anchorage and Homer Alaska for around one year now. Vegas Bob will be in Las Vegas for several days looking over some of his accounts and other financial investments. While VB was on vacation 10 days last week, VB and his wife found a beautiful lot with pine trees and natural flowers everywhere.The lot is a corner lot and has been reduced down 20K. Only 4 miles north of Homer, quiet with beautiful view of the massive Golf of Alaska. This vacant lot overlooks huge snowcap mountains including Mt Augustine. Robert Swetz will know in the next couple weeks ;o)
