Reluctantly Rolling Home

Neither of us wanted to head home. But it seems we were here long enough for me to reset my equilibrium. I’ve had the one last week of summer I was craving.

While the city of Fairbanks is not normally on my top list of vacation destinations, it does host a couple of nice RV Parks and campgrounds if you know where to look. I knew right where to find River’s Edge RV Park.

This pretty campground has the added advantage of being reachable just a short distance from the Parks Hwy. No need to drive the RV through the streets of downtown Fairbanks.

Rhonda and I have been soaking up sunshine and mostly 70° temperatures at this quiet, well-maintained campground for the past four days. It was very literally just what the doctor ordered. ☀️

We lingered until just before the 11:00 am check-out time on Wednesday, saying “See you later” to a couple of neighbors and fellow dog-walkers. One last romp in the taller grass along the river’s edge and we were ready to roll.

As we hit the Parks Hwy, nose pointed south, I realized I was all right with it and was once again looking forward to the drive.

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.
