We are home

Guess I better let everyone know that we are home. We got in Thursday night on the fast ferry Chenega. Left Valdez at 4:30 and we were home before 6:30! It felt pretty good to sleep in my own bed after 6 weeks on the road. We put over 8700 miles on the car which is almost more than I put on my car since I bought it 7 years ago! I am so thankful that we had such an awesome time every step of the journey. We didn't do such a great job keeping up with the blog once we got to Oregon. Way too busy! I think Cadi mentioned that we went to Seattle, Ellensburg and Bend. Then after that we headed to the Oregon coast for our reunion with our "Chinese cousins" We have been getting together with these two families for the last 10 years and have gone from 1 Chinese daughter to 7. This is such a treasured time each summer. After we got back from the beach we had one day to pack and then we headed back up the highway. We took 6 days going back stopping in Cache Creek, Dawson Creek, Muncho Lake, Whitehorse, Tok and then caught the ferry in Valdez.
So now we're hunkered down in rainy Cordova just enjoying being home. Thanks for keeping up with us. Hope you enjoyed the trip!
P.S. I'm ready to retire, buy a motor home, homeschool and travel for a year. Anyone interested in starting the motorhome fund?

  1. Sounds like we were going the opposite direction just about the same time. We traveled through Cache Creek about 10 days ago. I didn't get the chance to read all your posts as we were traveling up to Alaska and didn't always have WiFi. We put on about 8500 miles and we already sold our motor home. Maybe we will reconsider when we are retired, but for now it's just too much work. Hope you all had fun. I had no idea that you lived so far away from Anchorage!
