Clean, pack, clean, pack, clean, pack, rinse & repeat. The moment was here.. everything was diligently packed up in totes and in our new blue box, cabin cleaned, Honeymooner all loaded and somewhat organized. One final sweep in the cabin and we were on our way, HONEYMOON! Because we got a bit of a late start we knew we wouldn’t be making it too far tonight. So as we sit here at our perfect camp spot for the night, we are pretty ok with being 50 miles from Glenallen.
We stopped a few times before reaching Anchorage to stretch our legs, let the dogs potty and snap a few pics of the amazing fall we are having. Hit up the Costco for some cocktail fixings and snack food and got out of Anchorage. One last stop in Eagle River to see our friend Laura (Boomer) for a speed visit/ belly rub. She has the perfect little belly bump! Hugs and she sent us on our merry way with special homemade gluten free treats! YUM!
The drive from Boomer’s house to our camp spot tonight was dark, windy, rainy, and a bit foggy. Can I just say my husband is a champ driver, I didn’t get car sick at all… and thats saying something.
Life is feeling pretty damn good. Husband is reading his new book that he grabbed at Costco about the quake of ’64 and all cozy in his sleeping bag. I’ve got a blanket on my lap, glass of wine to my right, black dog snuggling to my left and the white dog is crashed out in the front seat on her bed.
I forgot how much I loved blogging. In 2010 I did a good stint of traveling and blogged the whole thing and loved it. I was very hesitant to do it but am very thankful to have the memories to look back on. Ken says it makes sense that I love it because I am a documenter. I like to document the memory.. photos, videos, blogging. I would say I get that bit from my dad, it is rare to find him doing anything fun without the go pro in hand.
Hoping to make it to Haines Junction tomorrow. Night night for now.
