What's up ahead? We can't say for sure, but it involves an Airstream trailer, a red diesel pickup truck, and a restless brindle boxer.

Going to miss our sweet little Denali base camp with impromptu SUP sessions, gorgeous scenery, a national park and craft brewery all within a stone’s throw. For the first time in 4 months, we’ve turned the ship around and we’re beginning to saunter south again. Very slowly of course.

There’s one narrow, 92 mile dirt road that accesses the heart of Denali National Park. It’s only traveled by foot, bicycle or the park’s shuttle system (think school bus). This keeps the tourist stampedes down and the true wilderness experience up. (at Denali National Park, AK)

My wife has outdone me in the adventure category. She’s updating her pilot’s license so that she can get a floatplane rating. That means she’ll be able to take off / land on just about any lake (or bay) in Alaska! The ultimate in bush flying. With any luck, she just might take me with her.

Our first stop in Alaska was Chicken. Yes, that’s the name of the town. Only because the original homesteaders didn’t know how to spell Ptarmigan. True story. Things are different up here. #alaska

Four and a half months ago we moved out of our brick house in Denver and into an aluminum house on wheels. We started driving to Alaska by way of San Diego and up the west coast of North America. Now 6 states, 2 provinces and 5,500 miles later — we arrived! Thanks to everyone who followed along. We can’t wait to see where the road leads next. (at Top of the World Highway, Chicken, Alaska)
