I made during the planning process:
An internet buddy recently returned to her home in Texas from a fabulous trip to Alaska.
I consider her web site the epitome for Alaska travel sites.
Throughout her trip, she posted photos, provided information on her
progress, and allowed those of us who were "Alaska wannabee's"
to see into her innermost soul through her daily journal entries.
She enticed Jerri and me with
her glorious photos; she was "Odysseus' siren" ever calling us
from afar to join her; she provided up-to-date travel information; and
she gave strength to those of us who would soon follow in our own RV's.
Jerri and I perused her site
daily. We 'ooh-ed' and 'ah-ed' over her photos, not once but
numerous times. We wished our retirement date would hurry and
arrive. And when Peggy didn't update her web site as often as our
needed 'Alaska fix' required, we emailed to check her progress.
So, I've decided to emulate her site and "pay it forward" so
you can enjoy the trip with us.
first trip to Alaska
back in 1988, our daughter - Shannon - pasted a little homemade sign to
the rear windshield of our car. "Alaska or Bust"
it proclaimed. And, in our road atlas, she highlighted every state
or Canadian province we visited with her yellow marker.
Unfortunately, as we're making this trip she's stuck in her office
playing partner in her law firm. She'll join us in
Alaska for a week but she won't get to experience the entire
adventure. So, we'll utilize Peggy's journal system as a way for
her to make the trip with us.
And you, our loyal friends
and readers? Journey along with us as we take off on the
first adventure of our retired life! As Willie Nelson sings, "On
the road again. I just can't wait to get on the road
Well, the trip is now history, we hope you enjoy our journal as we
experienced the trip.
