Well folks, the big RV adventure starts this weekend! David and I couldn't be more excited. OK - I couldn't be more excited . . . David is as excited as he is about most anything . . . just his typical calming and even paced way.

I have started a blog which will be a preview of things to come in my IgoUgo journals/trip reports . . . and reviews. I expect to post some photos along the way on the blog as well.

Please feel free to stop in and check us out: http://bennettsgreatalaskanadventure.blogspot.com/ .

Just an update that the final entry in the blog was made last night wrapping up the trip.

I was able to get one journal written and posted from "on the road" and have what appears to be six more framed out to be written over the course of the next week or so.

Here is the link to the first: http://www.igougo.com/journal-j74616-Talkeetna-Maximizing_Time_in_Talkeetna.html which highlights our flightseeing tour of Denali National Park with K2 Aviation and a wonderful stay at the Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge, with a wonderful view of Mt. Denali (aka McKinley) from their patio.

Look for more to come!

I have gotten a couple more journals completed:

http://www.igougo.com/journal-j74687-Alaska-US_National_Parks_in_Alaska_-_Bears_and_More.html which highlights our experiences in three Nat'l Parks (Denali, Kenai Fjords and Lake Clark) . . . and all included bear sightings!

http://www.igougo.com/journal-j74698-Seward-Follies_in_Seward.html The title is a play on "Seward's Folly" (the phrase referencing the US acquisition of Alaska from Russia).

Hope you enjoy.
Von

p.s. I think there are three or four more journals to be written from the Alaskan Adventure.

Hey Von!

Just finished reading your awesome journal on fishing the Kenai. Now you made me hungry for salmon and halibut! Looks like you had a great time fishing in Alaska, and you couldn't get anything fresher than Alaskan Halibut and Salmon!

Looking forward to more great journals of your trip!
