Since many RVers sort of “get the itch” after the holidays to start planning their annual travels, I thought January was a perfect time to restart my “RVing to Alaska” Blog. This blog is about “How to RV to Alaska On Your Own.” This is NOT a caravan and NOT about a paid excursion. You can do this trip with some friends or by yourself.
I am not “anti-caravan.” There are trips where caravans are the perfect method for making that trip. Alaska is NOT one of them. After all, would you pay a caravan to take you to Kansas? Alaska is just another state—they use the same money, speak the same language, have the same highway signs, the same laws, food, fuel, and beer that you can find in any/all of the other 49 states. Yes, of course, you have to go through Canada to drive to Alaska but that’s really easy to do and you can’t get lost because there only two routes to Alaska. Even if you get on the wrong highway, you will get to the same place!!!
So, plan to go. You have to make this trip when you are healthy. When that “health stuff” smacks you down, it’s too late.
Yes, it’s a long trip but that doesn’t make it any harder—just longer. Read my blog, get my books, plan the trip, and go. I’ve been three times (three full summers in my 42-foot motorhome) and plan to go back. If you see me up there, say “Hello!”
A True Story…
On our last trip to Alaska, we were waiting to board a ferry and just killing time. I was standing in front of my coach, talking with a few other RVers, and a woman came up to me and said, “It’s your fault that I’m standing here!”
I thought maybe my coach was in her way or I had somehow crowded her—but I was more confused than concerned. Before I could respond, she said, “My husband and I sat in on your Alaskan seminar this Spring and you convinced us to make this trip. So it’s your fault that I’m standing here!”
We all had a good laugh. I hope she had a great trip. You will, too.
Read my blog—this is a “how to” and not a “pretty waterfall” type of blog. I talk about “How” to plan and make this trip.
This is my first post of the new year and since it’s time to start planning this great trip, I will post something about every two weeks or so. Check back. You never know, you may learn something!!!
Check back for new info.
