Day 37 - Seaside, OR - TT

This morning, we met up with Chris G who contacted us through the RVillage.com website. They are on their way to Alaska this summer and had some questions. There is a lot of information online and some FB groups dedicated to travel to Alaska this Summer. But, many people seem to over glamorize their trip in an attempt to turn it into an adventure. We answered them and suggested stops along the way, things to see and places to go. They have a relatively new 40’ diesel pusher and they’re towing a Jeep. A pretty good combination. After several hours of talking we told them to feel free and contact us anytime and definitely when they get to Fairbanks.

Other than that, it was a slow, no-picture day. 


  1. Every trip is an Adventure for most people

    1. I always associate the word “adventure” with more than driving down the road. Hmmm, food for thought...

  2. Have to agree with the over glamorize stuff. See it in the adventure bike forums too. I tell both groups that "grandmas" drive it in motorhomes. How hard can it be? 60+ years ago the Alcan was an adventurer or when my folks drove up in '47. However if you want adventure today drive the Taylor/Top of the World highway on a rainy day, at least the dirt sections. Its getting more civilized every year. Or the Dempster highway to Inuvik.
