Not a Pretty Day

When you are trying to squeeze as much quality travel and RV camping as possible into a necessarily limited time-span … in my case, late spring through fall in Alaska – there are going to be days less picturesque than others. Heck, sometimes (like today) it’s just plain cold, wet and dreary. On the otherContinue reading “Not a Pretty Day”

Throwing Caution to the Wind

Sometimes you just have to throw caution to the wind and go with your gut. With superb late summer weather forecast for the next four days, temps in the 70s, blue skies and balmy breezes, there was no way I was sitting home. I headed for unknown (to me) territory – and I took Jerry,Continue reading “Throwing Caution to the Wind”

Flexibility is Important

Yes, I can still touch my toes, but that is not what I mean by flexibility. 😉 My “plan”, to the extent that I had a plan, was to wind up my beach vacation on Thursday morning, with the idea of possibly stopping for one more night at one of my favorite woodsy campgrounds inContinue reading “Flexibility is Important”

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!”
