Time to leave Seward

20 June 2017 | Seward, Alaska
We've been in Seward since August, and now it is well time for us to travel. Alaska has been a truly wonderful experience, and we are very sad to leave. While we were here, we bought a Jeep and drove up to the town of Deadhorse where we went wading in the Arctic Ocean. Was it cold? Well, at 32 degrees F, yes. We also took that Jeep down the Alcan highway to California in December and got to experience 40 below zero in the Yukon. Also while we were here, I got to do what many pilots dream of - I got to do some flying over the glaciers and snow in a Citabria outfitted for the bush. And, of course, we met many great people, as we always seem to do wherever we go. Alaska is not so far away from the Lower 48 people, so put it on your list to get here. You will love it.

We expect to leave tonight about midnight (yes, it will still be light this time of year - how cool is that?) Our first destination as we head east, then south is Yakutat about 300 miles from us. The weather is only forecast to be good for a few days, so we will stop in Yakutat and then wait for the next opportunity to continue to the Inside Passage to Canada.

Thanks for being here with us, and we look forward to hearing from you on our comments section.

Be excellent to each other! (More important now than ever)
