Alaska Adventure - Weeks 11, 12 and 13

From our last post we were still in Fairbanks for another 5 days. We didn't sit around doing nothing, we knew of some Boomer RV friends who were coming into Fairbanks and we arranged a trip to Chena Hot Springs, which is about 50 miles northeast of Fairbanks (July 29). This was one of my must see and do items on our Alaska trip. We started off our visit purchasing our tickets for their Ice Museum....

Alaska Adventure Weeks 9 and 10

While we enjoyed our free camp site at Peterson Lake, it was time to move on. We headed back to Anchorage for a couple nights ( July 13th - 14th ). We stayed in the Sam's Club parking lot, allowing us to restock on groceries and do laundry. On our last night we enjoyed another Boomer get together. 12 of us met at a restaurant close by for more travel story swapping. Refueled and ready to continue ...

Alaska Adventure - Weeks 7 and 8

During our stay in Homer, we hiked in an Alpine Meadow at the Eveline Recreation Area (where I left off in our previous Blog entry). While visiting the Bear Creek Winery, Larry mad...

Alaska Trip - Weeks 5 and 6

Before our trip to Alaska, we bought the " Alaska TourSaver " book. This $99 book includes hundreds of coupons, mostly "two-for-one" deals on tourist attractions. We used a few coupons at some gift shops while in Anchorage for free gifts. They were mostly 50 cent souvenir magnets. One of the coupons Connie wanted to use was for an Alaska train trip from Anchorage to Whittier. There was no special ...

Aerial Video of Williwaw Campground

Before heading to Seward, AK, we made a 4 day stop in the Portage Valley. Since I had some time, I took some aerial videos of the nearby area, including Byron Glacier, Middle Glacier, Portage Lake, and the Williwaw USFS campground we were staying in. The weather was great and I couldn't pass up the opportunity! Hope you enjoy the show! I also started to learn more about "aerial mapp...
