go to site All families have nuances that make them who they are. One of the traditions in our family is a good night saying. It was added to over time, some of the sayings have been said to loved ones for many years, some are new. In the Blair/Williams/Day house each child is told goodnight in pretty much the same manner………..”Goodnight, I love you, sweet dreams, sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite,wake you up in the morning AND dream about………..?” Over the past year the Williams brothers have been dreaming about Alaska. Today that dream came true.
It has been a great trip through Canada. The roads can be difficult and unforgiving;
But if you slow down and take your time, you won’t rip the underside of your motorhome off! And you’ll get a good look at the wild life along the road. Some of the sightings have been fleeting and there was little time for photographs, others had little fear and remained long enough for a picture. So far we’ve seen, a grizzly bear, brown bear, black bear, moose, deer, beaver, gray wolf, caribou, buffalo and an elk.
So far some of our favorite stops have been associated with natural Hot Springs! What a great way to end a long day of driving. Slip down to the springs and soak away the miles! The first springs were natural and as you got closer to the out-flow the water temp increase to a scalding 126 degrees! Down stream it was a soothing 104. The second hot springs stop was a bit more commercial and it had two man made pools the first of which was 105 and the other larger pool was in the 90’s. Either way it made for a great finish to a great day!
Every once and a while we simply stopped along the side of the road and attempt to catch a fish or just take in the beauty in front of us.
The campsites have been stunning, and even though we have grown accustomed to not finding a full hookup (50 amp, water, sewer and cable) we have found we can get by with a little electricity and some place to fill the water tank, and every now and then a place to dump.
Other times have required that we modify the campsite (just a bit) to accommodate our camper. Even if that meant Christian had to hop up and clear a branch with a tomahawk!
This is an Arctic Grayling caught on a bright lure. I caught this one, a super mini one, and a normal sized one. We were going to keep this one but papa sadly didn’t know enough about the fish. Also there was a mini fish that was literally jumping out of the water for my bait. It was adorable. 😛 bye 🙂
I found a great place to rock hunt. In this EXACT spot, I found 7 rocks. But anyway, Today, Christian and I played “Manhunt” (A game like Hide-And-Seek Tag), “Rock Hunt” (Pretty self-explanitory, I think), And “Marshmallow Roast” (If you don’t get this, you might want to get your brain checked). Oh, wait! I almost forgot: we also played “RV ride” (Seriously, get your brain checked if you don’t get this).
That’s just about all we did, so bye, and thanks for your time!
