Jul 5, 2015 - There's no place like home

There's no place like home, there's no place like home, there's no place like home.....wishing it won't make it happen. The 8 1/2 hour drive turned into 12 hours with 2 major traffic issues on I-40 but we made it safely @ 8:30 pm and 12725 miles later. My heart fluttered at the sight of home. It's so good to be here.

May 16, 2015 - The Day Before Departure

Almost ready! I did not know you could pack so much in such a small space. Now Sam and I wonder if there will be room enough for the two of us! Tomorrow the adventure begins and the last minute checks look good and the windshield is clean. Stay tuned for more updates. I will try and do updates every couple of days. Thanks for all the well wishes and thanks to those who are looking after things while we are away. We could not do it without you!

May 10, 2015 - One week before departure

The time is almost here for our departure. The long awaited trip of a lifetime to Alaska. Preparation has been going on for months as Sam has been in his little corner of the room planning our itinerary using maps, books, internet, etc. As he says "50% of the enjoyment of the trip is in the planning". Well he has throughly enjoyed more than 50% so far. The motorhome is almost outfitted for the kayaks.
