We arrived back in Seattle from the cruise to Alaska. Carla took these really cool photos as the ship was pulling into the port before I was even awake. We headed back to our house on wheels. After hooking up the car, we headed south toward California. Mount Shasta was sure pretty. JGW RV … More 1 Year Journey – Washington to California
After leaving Skagway, we spent the following entire day at sea. We woke up to the ship rocking back-and-forth quite a bit! It actually made me nauseous. I would frequently lose my balance in the hotel room or walking down the hallway, especially where there weren’t any windows. It felt like walking through a carnival … More 1 Year Journey – Alaska to Victoria, B.C.
We woke up, docked in Skagway, AK. This was the farthest point north we have ever been. We were closer to Russia than to our families! That’s a weird feeling! We took a quick stroll down the main street through town, which is, of course, loaded with gift shops. It’s neat little town, though. Snow … More 1 Year Journey – Alaska – Skagway
We woke up to our ship docking in Juneau around 5:30am Alaska Time. It was a beautiful morning! Neat wall of fog behind us that looks like a glacier as we were pulling into Juneau: We really liked seeing all the tall and skinny waterfalls. It looks like Hawaii! This is the first time we’ve … More 1 Year Journey – Alaska – Juneau
We woke up to complete fog the next day. It remained like that for most of the day. We spent the entire day at sea, so I’m not sure what all we missed scenery wise due to the fog. We could hear the ship’s foghorn sound every three minutes. We went up to the upper … More 1 Year Journey – Alaska – Ketchikan
We shipped out of Seattle and headed toward Alaska! We stored our RV in the cruise ship parking at Lake Pleasant RV park, which has electrical hookups to keep your refrigerator going. The electrical posts are shared by several RVs and require you to convert down to 110AC. It looked a little like a … More 1 Year Journey – Alaska!
Avin had been seeing the “Ride the Ducks” vehicles around Seattle and wanted to ride them. We finally made time to do that and it was a lot of fun! We also took some time to see the huge fountain near the space needle. I remember coming here is a kid. Tripp loved running around the … More 1 Year Journey – Washington Part 6
We made yet another trip to REI in Seattle. That store is so much fun! It’s probably my favorite place to shop and drool over cool outdoor stuff. They were having an outdoor event on their huge patio on the second floor and there was lots of food, drinks, and music. I tried a caribou … More 1 Year Journey – Washington Part 5
After a couple nights at Issaquah Village RV Park, we headed back to Lake Pleasant RV Park in Bothell (we only moved over to Issaquah because Lake Pleasant didn’t have those nights available). I’m glad to be going back, as the I-90 freeway noise here is pretty bad and it gets on your nerves after … More 1 Year Journey – Washington Part 4
We spent the afternoon at Mount Rainier National Park! This is something I’ve been wanting to do for years. We went here when I was really young, but I couldn’t really remember much about it. We drove about 2.5 hours from Bothell to Paradise, WA, which is right on the side of the mountain at … More 1 Year Journey – Washington – Part 3
