Fur is easy to purchase but it is very expensive. We sure laugh up here when the whole world was crying when Gasoline hit 350 per gallon and higher .

We have to pay almost 10 bux a gallon !! And no one complains !!!

That fur ruff on Aaka's parky is called - A sunshine ruff. they are made by mixing furs from different animals together to form the Issaqavik (fur ruff).

Maybe you could start posting your pictures in a forum where they won't be missed. We need a lot of good things to post and see, and these pictures are a real treat to see.

greeney2 I was thinking the same thing. More people would like to see all of this, doesn't need to be crammed where not as many people will be looking.

This thread can stay here for now, although 3d4me2, you could add more pictures and post a new thread in General discussions, or personal chat forum. Either one would be good, and get more activity.

Yeah I was wondering how they made the hoods, makes sense it is from more than one animal.
None of that is porcupine is it? :mrgreen:

There are no porcupines in the Arctic! That I have ever heard of. Wolf, Wolverine, Beaver, aer the main furs used. Wolf is no good, it is used for fancy dress parky's . Wolf will keep your face wet and cold, it is not the right fur to use when hunting or being outside for extended periods of time. Fox fur is only for women's parky's

Wolverine is the absolute best fur for a parky. It will keep your face dry and warm. If blowing wet snow is happening.. all you have to do is shake the ruff and it is dry and warm again.

Well thanks for the great advice and I will head on over there and begin a new thread with spectacular images and stories galore !!

Hi Majick... errr 3D4ME2,

It is really great to see that you are still posting your photographs and sharing your passion for the vast North. Your photographs are breathtaking... every last one of them!! Your love for the people that surround you in your community shows through in each and every picture and each and every one of your pictures tells a story unto itself.

I love the fact that you have the ability to take a camera and show the daily life in a land that most of us will never see. That truly is a beautiful talent you have. Thank you for sharing with us. :D

I am gald to see YEW TEW!!! :D

This is sooo awesome! I can't wait to see the yo-yos. When they are ready, please send me a picture and tell me where to send the money and how much I owe? Just send me a PM with details. I have been collecting eskimo yo-yos for 30+ years, but I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that your yo-yo will be far more authentic than any of the ones that I have (other than the one that my son made for me in grade school). YAY for eskimo yo-yos! --- it's a wonderful toy for all ages :D
