On the Road Again 🎵🎶🎵

Let’s sing the chorus one more time! Gotta love driving down the highway to Willie Nelson songs. Rhonda doesn’t even seem to mind my singing. 😉 Speaking of things you just gotta love … get this. I had a doctor appointment this morning at 11:00 am. Because of the pandemic, I’ve been doing tele-med appointmentsContinue reading “On the Road Again 🎵🎶🎵”

A Week Apart From the World

The only sound to break the silence in this spruce forest for the past hour was the lonesome whistle of the Alaska Railroad train as it passed nearby. It’s good to know the train is running, albeit on a reduced schedule. From what I gather, the Denali Park tour bus was finally going to startContinue reading “A Week Apart From the World”

Day Six – Homeward Bound

Slowly, we turned towards home … Oh, how my heart wanted to find some other route. Something other than the Parks Hwy, which will lead us back to our “normal” life. Eventually. 😉 But not today. All right, no more whining. I know it’s past time to call a [temporary] halt to this particular ramble,Continue reading “Day Six – Homeward Bound”

Day Four – We Found Fairbanks!

Someone once told me all roads (in Alaska) lead to Fairbanks – if you keep driving long enough. I don’t know about that, but if you turn right when you exit the Delta Junction State Recreation Area, you will indeed end up in Fairbanks – eventually. It’s sort of hard to miss. Rhonda and IContinue reading “Day Four – We Found Fairbanks!”

Day Three – The Adventure Continues

Departing Valdez Saturday morning was bittersweet. I could’ve easily stayed for several days, but this trip is all about travel, not destinations. So I unhooked water and electric, tidied the rig, and stored away my mosquito plants, step and door mat. The road ahead would be bumpy, so I made sure everything was extra secure.Continue reading “Day Three – The Adventure Continues”

De and the Dachsies Ramble on … Day Two

My heart sings, absolutely swells with joy when I drive through towering, snow-capped mountains. I think there should be a rule that they place vehicle pull-outs at every single scenic view. Impractical, perhaps. But geez … when you are traveling alone, it’s not like you can just stop in the middle of the road toContinue reading “De and the Dachsies Ramble on … Day Two”

Sheltering in Place on Wheels

A need to see something other than the exact same view from my window nudged me out of “shelter in place”, despite my concerns as a high-risk senior. There had to be a way to maintain a cautious distance and see to my basic safety needs without turning into a hermit. Besides, I was gettingContinue reading “Sheltering in Place on Wheels”
