Day Forty Five: Alaska Sealife Center

July 9th stands out in my mind for several reasons.  First, Jerry and Wendy had made it safely to the RV park!  They got there around 1am; Jerry told me later that if it hadn’t been light out past midnight, they would have stopped.  One of the advantages of the long days!  And our visit to the Alaska Sealife Center is one of my favorite memories.  I got what I think are some outstanding pictures.  Continue reading “Day Forty Five: Alaska Sealife Center”

Day Forty One: Cruising Prince William Sound

Before I get into the actual post, I want to apologize for the lack of updates.  The places where I’ve had a good cell signal have also been locations where we’ve been really busy.  And we’re back in Canada, which means Verizon restricts me to a half of a GB, which is nothing.  I can’t move the pictures to the website with that amount of bandwidth.  WiFi, if offered, is nearly universally useless at most campgrounds.  And then we started down the Cassiar Highway, and I lost even cell service for several days.  We are getting much closer to the border, and there should be no issues once I cross back into the U.S. on August 7th.  Continue reading “Day Forty One: Cruising Prince William Sound”

Day Thirty Three: Completely Amazing

Today was one of those days which made my decision to do my trip through an RV tour company seem brilliant.  While I appreciate the fact that I’m not traveling alone and I’ve made some great friends, the activities we get to do have all been just great.  On this particular day, there is zero chance I would have gone to the place on my own; every single person on the tour said the same thing.  But it was just an amazing experience and we all loved every minute of it.

Day Twenty Nine: Liard Hot Springs

Fort Nelson to Liard Hot Springs was not a long drive, but it was a pretty interesting one.  We saw all kinds of animals: black bears, a moose, mountain goats, bighorn sheep, and a whole bunch of bison.  Unfortunately, I discovered after two days that none of the pictures I took on my Canon were saved–due to my forgetting to put the stupid SD card back into it.  Devastating!  What I do have are pictures I took on my phone and a few I borrowed from my fellow travelers.  And, I’m checking that SD card constantly now.
