enjoy your trip!


You must be seeing awesome sights already! (I looked up Ketchken). Enjoy every moment!


I am endlessly impressed by you two. I so admire your spunk. Looking forward to pictures.


Oh wow. I am more excited than you. I want to know Alaska better through your eyes :)


You are in for a great adventure! I think taking the ferry was a great decision because it is a long hard drive just getting to Alaska. I CAN'T wait to see your posts!

Have fun on your vacation. Sometimes not having wifi is a great way to just relax and enjoy the moment.

that´s quite an adventure ahead of you.
If I were you I´d keep internet low and enjoy the ride you are in. I´m not doing that much blogging when I´m on a trip. Mostly notifying friends and family where I am.
Have a great time.


How exciting! And even better to be able to stay for an indefinite period. You are living the dream :)

Hope you have a wonderful time. I've only done the coastal towns, the Aleutians including Siberia and St. Lawrence Island. The mainland is the ultimate trip for me some time in my retirement. Godspeed and look forward to your pics!
