North to Alaska

Well, I think we're ready! Tomorrow morning (7/10) we leave for Alaska with our friends Jean and Bob Wise. Jean and I worked together in the Early Childhood Special Education program in North St. Paul and Jean retired a year after I did. One of the last posts I did for this blog was from their house in Big Sky, Montana.

So, Jean and Bob have a pickup and great 5th wheel camper that will be our home for the next 5 or 6 weeks. We visited them in Casa Grande, AZ last winter.

We'll be heading up the Al-Can Highway - St. Paul to Fargo, Minot, and into Canada - Regina, Saskatoon, Edmonton, Fort Nelson, Whitehorse and then into Alaska near a town called Tok. Then we'll head down to the Kenai Peninsula and meet up with my high school friend, Paulette (aka Pete) and Ed. Eventually we'll work our way up through Anchorage, to Denali Park, Fairbanks and then back to Tok and home again. We are looking forward to beautiful scenery, big-time fishing, lots of laughs and fun!
I will try to keep up this blog (with Jean's help!) and every few days we'll share some of our photographs and adventures with friends and family, although, we are not sure how good our internet connections will be.

Just to get you in the mood -
