September 2, 2018

The only thing more impressive than the park’s size, is its remote, untouched, pristine wilderness. It’s a 4 1/2 hour drive from Anchorage up the Glenn Highway to the Edgerton Highway. At the end of that…

The Blog is Back!!!  Most, or some of you know I started this blog when I spent 2 years driving around the U.S. 2011-2013. It had a brief resurgence with a trip to Nebraska and then went dormant again.  I thought it would be fun to post some of my favorite moments from my Bday…

The Great State of Nebraska

March 13, 2016

“There are no uninteresting places, only uninteresting people”-MJH A little judgmental? Maybe, but it is me writing this blog after all 🙂 There is more than a little truth to that statement.  When you travel, you need to use your imagination. There are ALWAYS interesting things to see wherever you go.   Lots of people…

February 10, 2013

Here I am still up in Fairbanks and surviving after almost 5 months!  What a weird, wacky, wonderful adventure its been. I’ve endured -50 degree temperatures, ice rain, ice fog, darkness, several minor earthquakes and a moose encounter on the trails. There really is no place like Fairbanks!

WTF (Welcome to Fairbanks) Months Two & Three

December 12, 2012

I was going to do a Month 2 post but somehow that didn’t happen, so let’s combine them since it’s been almost 3 months that I’ve been here now. If anyone says to me “There’s nothing to do in Fairbanks” ever again, I’m going to slap them upside their head. If you can’t find things…

WTF (Welcome To Fairbanks) Month One

October 30, 2012

So I’ve been here about a month now and I’m settling into life in what is becoming an ever darker and increasingly colder spot. I woke up one recent morning in complete darkness at 8:15 AM and the temperature was -9 degrees Fahrenheit in October! Someone used the expression the other day WTF, which stands for something entirely different here…
