Asphalt Camping Again

After four days of beach-front camping at beautiful Deep Creek Campground in Ninilchik, Alaska, I have to say, my current location is definitely lacking in both amenities and views. Yep, we pulled up stakes at the beach … or more accurately, rolled the rocks off my ground mat (the wind really picked up yesterday eveningContinue reading “Asphalt Camping Again”

The “Other” Weekend Adventure

On the bright side; I didn’t blow up the RV. I don’t have much in the way of pretty photos to share with this story. It’s more in the way of a cautionary tale. I want to begin by thanking SixRobbLee’s RV Center in Anchorage for promptly and efficiently repairing my malfunctioning propane regulator yesterdayContinue reading “The “Other” Weekend Adventure”

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.

I headed for unknown (to me) territory – and I took Jerry,Continue reading “Throwing Caution to the Wind”

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”
