Daily Log of Project, Subsistence and Commercial Etc. Activity
In season short comments on activity in the Tanana, Rapids and Rampart area through word of mouth and observation are sent in with the daily data worksheet updates. Combined these give an idea of the season from ground zero through the eyes of a non objective observer. Often with some sarcasm, always with an agenda, sometimes trying to be professional. Below are the all years daily updates and after an example of one day in 2006.

Picture - One of many in stream egg incubation box used on Tozitna River in 1970's and early 1980's. Used for 2000 - 8000 eggs at a time and taken out before ice breakup but after eggs hatched. Did not need upwelling gravel water to incubate eggs as it produced its own when faced into current.
