Friday, August 11, 2017 Homer Alaska : A quaint little Drinking Village with a Fishing Problem! Today is the final day on the ferry. I am ready to get off; for no other reason than to start the next part of the journey. The ferry experience has been more peaceful and intimate than my previous […]
To me an adventure is anything unexpected, good or bad. be it a dirt road to nowhere, crossing the atlantic by sea or just spending time with your friends and family trying something new. I was inspired to document our families own adventures when my daughter Sophia said to me, “Daddy, I don’t want go Anywhere . . . I want to go Somewhere!” It was this wisdom from a 6 year old that became the tagline for our site!
Thursday, August 10, 2017 This morning we wake up in Whittier. I had originally wanted to depart the ferry, and begin our adventure from here. Specifically, because the town is entered and exited via a one-way, shared railroad tunnel, that is 2.5 miles long. Why didn’t we? Specially, because the town is entered and exited
Wednesday, August 9, 2017 Part 1 of 2 (The less introspective update) Today is another Sea Day. The mountain views, on the starboard side, keep the rockier waters down and created a beautiful a view. As we head into open waters the waves pickup and views of the land become a memory. The boat rises
Wednesday, August 9, 2017 Part 1 of 2 This morning I come to you from the tiny town of Yakutat. We were scheduled to be here at 3AM but seem to have arrived closer to 7AM. Very few people are getting on or off. It feels more like a supply stop. There is no signal,
Tuesday, August, 8, 2017 I am getting my days confused. I am pretty sure today is Tuesday. I believe forgetting the days, on about, is a good thing. Occasionally, you may need to know the time, but only when you need to make it back for an all-aboard. Today, the weather greets us with sun.
Monday, August, 7, 2017 Ketchikan is our first chance to get off the Kennicott. We don’t get far, as town is about 4 miles from the ferry and we only have a couple of hours before all-abord. We make the most of it, by heading over to the Landing Restaurant & Hotel. It is a
Monday, August, 7, 2017 Waking up to a cold and hazy morning, discovering your bedding has a prison tag on it can be a concerning feeling. But the lock on the door is secure, so I slept in a little longer before waking up around 5AM. When you leave port your immediately on Alaska time,
Sunday, August 6, 2017 This morning, I realized, yesterday’s post was titled incorrectly. It felt like Day 1 because Bill and I were finally arriving at the Ferry. We have actually been on the road for 6 days. In reality, this trip has been in the making for over 7 years. It was a trip
UPDATE on the TAT: So What Happened After the last Post? The Complete Journey is now available – Click here! Many folks asked what happened after the Luke Birthday post. The ride did continue and since most folks were following on Facebook and Twitter, things around here slacked. Additionally, the posts were all going up on RoadRUNNER Magazine
It is with a heavy heart that I report that my Triumph Scrambler has moved on to new pastures. In a strange turn of events, I met a guy who desperately wanted a Hyabusa within less than 6 hours I was able to sell my Triumph, meet him to hand him cash, that he then
