Good evening from Alaska!

They say you should start as you intend to continue. So, here goes.

It’s November in south-central Alaska. Would you believe we have ZERO snow so far this winter? Much as I’d rather be out RV’ing, my 2016 Winnebago Minnie Winnie 27Q motorhome, affectionately referred to as “Roada”, is winterized and parked for the season. So sad! Honestly, I’m thinking I might’ve jumped the gun on that. Although temps are definitely chilly (in the low 30’s at night and upper 30’s/low 40’s during the day … with no snow, I could have kept camping. Darn. Still, this just means it’s time to start planning for SPRING and dreaming about adventures to come.

I’ve chosen to blog publicly for two reasons. First, family and friends have been urging me to share my stories for years. I used to write for my own pleasure and for a while as the Alaska Editor for BellaOnline, an online magazine. I stopped writing ten years ago after a traumatic incident. That will be another blog post. It’s past time to start again.

Second; I have so many stories to tell. I want to get them down on paper while I still can. I EXPECT the next couple of years to be fodder for yet more stories as I continue my RV travels. For now, I’d love to share all the (sometimes funny, sometimes painful) ups and downs of just STARTING my RV life.

I’m a RV Sometimer (less than full time, but more than a weekend warrior) living in Alaska, with dreams of seeing the country in my RV. I am 70 years old and married, but my husband isn’t a fan of RV travel, so my journeys are mostly solo except for my navigators; dachshunds Baxter & Rhonda. I’m also a spinner of tales - and a spinner of yarn (my other passion). My spinning wheel, along with the dogs, go along on all my travels. I look forward to sharing my stories, including photos and videos, with you.
