Portage Valley, AK

Y’all know I’ve got my list of what is available to do in each place we will be going. On the way to Seward is the¬†very small hamlet of Portage Valley. We didn’t think we were going to be able to do any of the activities I’d found in the Portage area because of time … Continue reading »

Day Trip To Homer

While we were in the Seward area we decided to take a day trip over to Homer. We had no plans of actually staying over on that side of the peninsula, but we did want to see it. I thought a map might help you visualize where we went. We started in Seward and went … Continue reading »

Palmer/Wasilla Area Fun

We thoroughly enjoyed the Palmer/Wasilla area. It was exactly the combination of being close enough to the stores we need and being far enough from the rush of the city that we like. One of the things I’ve been looking forward to doing is learning more about the Iditarod Sled Dog Race. We were able … Continue reading »

Anchorage, AK

Anchorage is one of those towns I was really looking forward to seeing. I had grand visions of seeing moose right on the streets of the city…bears waddling around our RV park. I mean, it’s Anchorage, Alaska…it should be rugged and wild. When we were in Valdez we struck up a conversation with a couple … Continue reading »
