George is a young guy with enough stories to fill a lifetime thanks to his Vanagon… and his Subaru. Even though he lives and works in Homer, his adventures have taken him south to Mexico and everywhere in between.
Pete Wedin is a fishing boat captain and guide who let us camp out at his place in Homer, Alaska, for a couple of nights. We all became fast friends. We sat down with Pete over a halibut dinner (excellent by the way) and a couple of cocktails.
