When you’re on a boat with no cell phone service or internet, you have to be creative in how you have fun or else you’ll go crazy. So we create things like food challenges which normally involve something gross to eat and a money bet.
The first food challenge of the season was a $3 bet between Anthony and Walter to see who could hold a tablespoon of horseradish, hot sauce and chili pepper in their mouth the longest.
Walt, on the left, won but ended up not feeling so well and eventually threw it back up.
Someone else bet Walt $5 that he couldn’t drink a gallon of Tampico juice in 30 minutes.
He gave in after 15 minutes, but he did finish half the jug! He then proceeded to throw that up too. We’re looking into whether he has bulimia or not…
Another bet for a burger in town was to draw with a Sharpie on Walt and he had to keep in on the whole day.
Later on some nice evil eyebrows, muttonchops and neck tattoos were added to really complete the look.
When all the bets are exhausted we do a little modeling:
My older brother Byron in his new, oh so subtle raingear.
And then we set up a beauty parlor and do hair:
My little brother Matti with his stunning French braid that I gave him.
I’m pretty sure that was my natural hair color and probably what I looked like as a little girl.
Walter and Anthony made appointments at the salon and also went for new ‘do’s:
Walter went with a classic buzz and Anthony chose the Mohawk; I guess neither wanted me to do extensions and French braid their hair. weird.
And that my friends, is what we do for fun Alaska-style. It explains a lot….
Can you think of any good food challenges or bets??
