So we are about to go to Alaska for the summer and friends keep asking...you are going to blog about it, aren't you? My answer is, well..... then I started thinking about it. I have wanted to write a blog for several years but have never felt I had the time to devote to it. My business keeps me VERY busy. But, we have been preparing for this special trip to Alaska for two years and I think the time is right. We have been to Alaska 3 times before. Our first, in 2002, was a 2 week trip on a Princess Cruisetour. We flew to Fairbanks and then spent a week in the interior of Alaska, seeing it by airplane, motorcoach, speedboat, tourboat, riverboat and the Alaska Railroad.
Then we boarded the Star Princess for a one week Gulf of Alaska and Inside Passage Cruise. We were hooked! We returned for 5 months in our 40 ft 5th wheel and MDT in 2006, our Allegro Bus for 3 months in 2009 and now, in "Stubby," for 4 months in 2014. Stubby is the name of our tiny Class C. It is a 2005 Itasca Cambria. Why so small? We want to be able to see more of the "real" Alaska. The places that have few or no RV parks. The tiny villages, lakes, forests, and the islands, by Alaska Ferry, of Southeast Alaska. Charles will fish to his heart's content and I will fish some too and take LOTS of pictures! We are stoked!
Come along with us as "our adventure continues." Launch date: May 19. 2014. Charles' 70th birthday.
What a celebration!
