I intend not to leave out a single detail of my account. While my memory is still fully functional, I want the readers of today and the readers of tomorrow to read and see my encounter.
Nor will I make this encounter into a fictional best-selling novel of which I could certainly do. I am merely reporting the facts of what I was privileged to be shown and welcomed aboard by our distant universe space explorers.
I do however hope earth’s space explorers are able to glean vital information and think of the different technologies from the encounter. What I saw impressed me greatly and made a lasting imprint in my mind.
We are not alone in the universe of stars.
Duane Arthur Ose was born and raised in Minnesota. He enlisted in the army in 1964 at the age of twenty-one and spent one of his three years of service in Korea as a US Army engineer.
Duane met Rena, his second wife, through the mail-order bride system, and she moved to the Alaskan homestead to live in a hole in the ground (called a dugout) for nine years while she and Duane built their three-story log home. They live off the land for the most part, gardening, using solar power, and trapping. (Rena does the skinning.) Duane is a survival expert, skilled at living and thriving under extreme conditions. A sought-after public speaker, Duane gives presentations on rural living, homesteading, survival, Alaskan living, and the art of dowsing. He is also the author of Alaskan Wilderness Adventure: Join Duane and His Son Daniel on a Journey Deep in the Alaskan Wilderness in Search of Finding a New Home.
