Heidi's parka makes the news


After seeing Heidi shiver several times in her inadequatly insulated coat, I suggested that it was time to upgrade. After some extensive research, Heidi chose the CanadaGoose Eclipse Parka. I scoured the internet for the best price and found Bob Mickler's. Their store, which is down in Kentucky, was quite surpised to see a customer from Stebbins, Alaska. The news caught the eye of a reporter for a local newspaper.

THE BUZZ by Jim Jordan

No roads? No problem

Bob Mickler's gets lots of orders for riding apparel and clothing through its Web site, www.bobmicklers.com.

But a recent one for a woman's goose-down jacket caught the eye of Julie Mickler, the Lexington company's president. The reason was the destination: Stebbins, Alaska.

"It's almost 900 miles north of Anchorage," Mickler said. "I knew there weren't any roads there and that it might have to be flown in.

"So I called UPS to see if they would deliver," Mickler continued. "They said, 'yes,' but I heard this giggling in the background. 'We'll have to find a musher,' they said."

In the end, the U.S. Postal Service picked up a jacket in Lexington that had been made in Canada and delivered it to a far corner of Alaska.

Did they use a musher and a dog team? Mickler wasn't sure, but "we got an e-mail from the customer (Friday) and she loved the jacket."
