Out to the Kenai Penninsula

We hooked up the trailer and moved for the first time in almost two weeks. We took the same route out of Anchorage as when we made the trip to Seward, but this time we continued on the main road toward Homer. We stopped in the small town of Sterling where we decided to spend a week. The RV park rates are not bad for full hookups including free wireless, and it will give us some time to get laundry done, relax after a hectic trip to Phoenix and will serve as a good base for visiting the rest of the Kenai Penninsula.

We arrived about 3 pm and didn’t do much of anything for the rest of the day. I finally changed some wiring that allows us to be able to take advantage of cable TV when it is available in the RV park. We have not watched much TV lately, but probably will now that the kids are gone and we are not spending so much time on the road.

One thing we have discovered is that some of the RV parks in Alaska that have free wireless only support 802.11G, not 802.11B which is the older standard. My laptop works fine, but I do not have a wireless antenna for the desktop that supports G. I plan to look around and see if I can find one somewhere, but I’m not holding my breath for success until we get back to Anchorage.


  1. I think the Kenai has some of the most beautiful scenery in Alaska. You'll probably get further down the road than we did.

  2. We stayed in that area for a few days, and I think that's the place where Dad saw so many mountain goats with the binoculars. He sat watching them for hours.

  3. That's where Ken had a job as a guide.

    I'm sorry to hear the Alaska Experience is closed, but not really surprised. It was badly in need of updating.
