Hi from the Sandbox in Afghanistan... It's been awhile since my last blog... sorry! I forgot my username/password!!!
I had very busy time off during July/Aug!!! I decided that I was going to cross off another bucket-list item by riding my BMW1200GS to the TOP OF ALASKA! I didn't waste anytime and packed up the bike and headed North to Port Angeles,Wa to beautiful Victoria, BC. I met up with a Harley rider (Ralph) and one of the Racing Green riders (Greg) and we headed North towards the top of Vancouver Island. The ferry ride from Port Hardy to Prince Rupert was stunning! Always one of my favorites!!! Next leg was Alaska Marine Highway Ferry to Juneau to spend some time with Terri and her Alaska Family. Then ferry to Skagway, AK!!! The ride to Fairbanks on the Top of The World Highway. I had a nice visit with Terry in Fairbanks before heading North to the Arctic Circle and Deadhorse at the top of Alaska.... after being woken up by a Mamma Brown Bear and her cub, I did a 180 and headed back to Fairbanks then South along the World Famous Alaska Highway to Port Townsend.
Somewhere during all that riding, I found the time to fly to Texas to see my Son graduate from the Air Force Boot Camp!!! Go Air Force!! haha
Then over to Mississippi for a Family Reunion at my Mother's new home!
What a wonderful vacation! I only wish my Daughter and Grandson could've made it down too. Maybe next time! :)
