North to Alaska

We leave tomorrow morning. First planned stop is Las Vegas where I will have the truck serviced. We plan to stay two nights so we will have a little time to show the kids some of the sights.

The past two weeks have been fun filled. Don and Betty came down two Saturday's ago for the afternoon. We had a nice visit and cooked hamburgers for dinner.

The following Thursday Deidra and Dom arrived at Burbank Airport from Dallas so we went out to dinner and stayed with Great Grandpa and Grandma that night. We drove back down to San Onofre on Friday. Saturday Greg, Tina, Patricia and Michelle came down for the day. The kids had not seen their cousins for quite a while so it was nice. We played on the beach and bar-b-que'd again.

This week we have shown the kids what we do here. They have become good litter picker uppers and have had lots of fun at the beach. We had a sea lion beach himself one afternoon so they go to see one up close. They have seen lots of dolphins, pelicans, rabbits, squirrels and sand crabs. They would probably enjoy spending more time here sometime.

Today we did our final shopping before setting out, and Dianna had a new crown put on a tooth. I picked up the scooter which had its 14,500 mile service yesterday. I think we are ready to go and promise to post much more often from now on. We want to have our memories documented and this is the best way to do it and keep all our family and friends posted on our trip as well.


  1. Devon and Keri just went to So CA yesterday. They are spending a couple of days in the south, then a few days in San Francisco. Too bad you're just leaving, or they could have spent a day on the beach with you.

    We are going to hold you to that promise to post often, including some pictures. We want to hear and see the adventures.

    Are you taking the highway or the ferry? At least the Alaska Highway is paved now.

  2. Just this past week I reread all my blog entries about my sabbatical trip down the east coast with Glenda. It sure is a great way to keep a journal of your adventure. You'll enjoy your trips down memory lane when you can no longer take them for real. And we'll enjoy reading them too. Be safe!

  3. That is very exciting. Enjoy your time with D&D! See you all in July!
