Alaska Trip - Week 2

After leaving Quesnel, we moved another 170 miles to the small town of Mackenzie (May 20th - 21st). We've been moving slowly, ensuring we enjoy the trip. Why drive all day, just to get exhausted? We may have some long stretches, but we're all much happier if we keep our journey to under 4 hours a day. Mackenzie is a little off the main route, 17 miles each way to be exact. But there were two reaso...

Moving North - Slowly

'll This past month has found us slowly moving North, towards Alaska. After we left Seal Beach, we spent a week at Fairways RV Park at the Naval Base in Port Heuneme, CA. We enjoyed our lazy stay there, visiting Point Mugu and catching up on some more computer work. After our week here, we moved a little further north to the California Army National Guard campground at Cam San Luis Obispo, CA...

This is a "selfie" video made by the drone.Larry's brother, Rocky, came in to visit for the afternoon. Luckily, he had the necessary "GoPro" camera, which I haven't yet purchased. We hooked up the camera to th...
