We have been cranking pretty hard this past quarter, so it was nice to unplug our heads for a bit.

We pointed the “Pipeline Princess” south and headed for Valdez.  If you haven’t been, all I can say is you should go…  Very beautiful.  One night in Valdez, and then back towards Anchorage finding out-of-the way places to try to get the motor coach stuck.  Renting the RV was a brilliant move and was tons of fun.  Besides having a safe place to work out of, it was a riot to camp in… Wherever we went, there we were.  (only exception was fuel was outrageous.  At almost 1000mi of driving for the week, and $5.00/gal gas, we were in deep.)

We got to Anchorage with about 12 hrs to spare, so we decided to head a bit down the Keni and take the train tunnel to Whittier.  Not much there but beer (which was fine.)  In the end, the tunnel drive and the fresh fish were worth it.

Back to Anchorage, and onto the flight for home.  It is only May, but there are some long ass days already.  Below is the view from the airplane sitting at the gate at 11:15pm waiting to taxi.  I’m going to miss it!
