Jul 31, 2005 - Back in Anchorage

Home again....er.....our home away from home. We're back in Anchorage. We left Homer Saturday after noon. We went for a drive out East End Rd. and took time to collect some muscles from the rocky beach. I think we have seafood....hehe. We took a short detour when we got close to Soldotna to a camping area and the Kasilof River we used to fish. It's another salmon river, but it was never as crowded...and still doesn't look like it is. We stopped in Coopers Landing for a late lunch or early dinner and since w had a later start, and we...

Jul 19, 2005 - The Work is Done

Ok....Journal is all caught up.....housework is all caught up....inside and out. We spent yesterday getting around to all the chores. Eric washed the trailer and pickup while I did laundry. But as it got warmer, we went inside and turned on the AC. Yep....AC in Anchorage! It was 80 degrees. I can believe hot weather in the interior...but Anchorage rarely gets this hot. Geeesh. Anyway while hiding inside to stay cool, I got all the chores whipped off my list and things look pretty good. It was too warm to cook, so we put together some cold...

Jun 29, 2005 - Anchorage - Finally

This morning I was anxious to get going, but I hated to leave such a peaceful place. We got up early and were away in rather short order; we had not unhooked the trailer from the truck, or had everything hooked up...there wasn't any hook ups . . lol. We had about 85 miles to Anchorage and we had a reservation at an RV park there, but we would probably get there before check in time if we drove straight through. I didn't want to stop at any tourist places, I didn't want to stop for breakfast, we munched beagles on the way - I wanted to get...

Apr 30, 2005 - Denali National Park to Anchorage Total trip so far: 5393 miles

4/30/05 This morning we got up early to try to catch some of the big animals out in the park this morning. Our result was not what we wanted, just 2 rabbits. We did get a nice view of Mt. McKinley with the sun just on it's peak. Depart Denali National Park for Anchorage about a 270 Miles drive from our resting spot. We did get more views of McKinley from Rte 3 as we headed south to Anchorage. It's a nice drive with mountains on either side of the road most of the time. We were surprised to see many people out on snowmobiles. Most of the...

Apr 21, 2005 - Anchorage, AK

So we moved our home to Ship Creek RV Park. Buck started working, we received our site free & he was paid an hourly wage. Oh, also Alaska minimum wage is $7.15 & anything over 8 hours day is OT / not anything over 40 hours week. Betty registered at Kelly Temp Service & started work the next week. First assignment was for 2 weeks, but ended up lasting 5 weeks. Buck was home during the day to tend dogs & we didn't need another vehicle since Buck worked where we were living. Now, tell me God isn't watching over us! + a Walmart! Could life be...

Mar 18, 2005 - Arrival

Moving to Sweden to work as a model? I can't believe nobody called me on that one. I'll take that as a compliment that it is entirely believable that I could move to the land of perfectly gorgeous people and be a model. Thank you! Other than that, I have three words: hook, line, sinker. No, what really happened is that I arrived in the big bad land of Alaska, what some (including my mother) would call "reality", but I would just call the "big bad land of Alaska." I'm a little weary, I'm a little jet-lagged, and a little punch drunk after a...

Jan 19, 2003 - Part 13: Home in Alaska

From Tok, you turn off of Highway 2 to Highway 1 towards Anchorage. In the Milepost, this is where you jump to the map section for the Glenn Highway. About 8 hours to Anchorage and home at last! I was starting to really get excited about seeing the Matanuska Glacier. It was one of the main reasons I had come all the way to Alaska. I had seen a picture of it once and was changed forever by it. Who knows, sometimes a picture of a place just does that to you. We started driving into the mountains again, and the roads began to wind down and...

Aug 23, 2000 - Anchorage and Fly Home

We had a great breakfast at the B&B. Very gourmet--crab quiche, fruit and hash browns. We hiked up to Flattop Mountain through the Blueberry Loop. There were wild blueberries all along the trail. The hike was difficult. We returned to downtown Anchorage and had lunch at Humpy's Restaurant. We shopped madly all afternoon four our souvenirs. We caught the plane back to Texas at 9:20 pm local time and got home around 9:30 am the next morning.

Aug 16, 2000 - Anchorage, Alaska

We rented bicycles and rode about 18 miles on the Coastal Trail from 10 am to 2 pm. We saw beluga whales and two moose. We took the bus from downtown Anchorage to a shopping mall for an arts and crafts show (not very good). Had a reindeer sausage for lunch and shopped at the downtown shops. Ate dinner as the Glacier Brewhouse.
