Two Alaska Travelogues on the WBCCI Region 1 Website

Check out http://www.wbcci1.org There are two 2006 Alaska Travelogues posted there. First is the Connecticut Caravan - a group of 4 members of the Charter Oaks Unit and the second is the Hamnqvist Family Alaska Trip. The Hamnqvist's are active members of the New England Unit. Both are very good, makes me wish I was traveling with them.

There's an issue with the Hamnqvist Family Alaska Adventure Blog

I noticed folks cannot get past the 4th day of the Hamnqvist Family Adventure - at least not without changing the URL address.

So, when you get stuck on day 4 (next day hyperlink brings up a blank page) just go to your browser's URL address field and change the address from:

http://www.hamnqvist.org/vacations/alaska06/Day04.htm

TO:

http://www.hamnqvist.org/vacations/alaska06/Day05.htm

And you can continue to follow their adventure. Seems many of the posts are being authored by the kids - love it!

I love reading about Per's trip. The pictures are just awesome. Hopefully I will someday make a trip like that.

Just finished reading through the Hamnqvist's diary, ending at July 10. It's my new favorite Airstream road show. Anybody know where they are now?

Per and the kids were scheduled to pick Lilli up in Fairbanks at the airport last Saturday. They were planning on hitting Denali National Park, Anchorage and parts of Kenai Peninsula this week and next, finally dropping Lilli off in Anchorage to fly home at the end of next week. They will then be "hopping" on a inland passage ferry (with Airstream and truck), sleeping on the deck of the ship in a dome style tent at night - I WISH I WAS THEM!!!!

Sounds like an amazing trip! I love all the detail, right down to what kind of pasta they had for dinner and who did the cooking. I hope they're planning on posting "the rest of the story" sometime soon. I'm staying tuned...

Hamnqvist's are in Seward AK

I got an email from the Hamnqvist family this morning. They are in Seward, AK camped out right on the Ocean. Take a look at the front of their trailer - it's painted with grey dirt from the unpaved roads they have traveled on.

Gosh, I wish we were there with them.

What a FANTASTIC adventure!

The Hamnqvist Family Adventure blog has been updated!

Check out where Per and the kids ventured since their last update:

http://www.hamnqvist.org/vacations/alaska06/Day21.htm

I cannot believe the conditions they went through, or how beautiful the land is....

When you talk to the Hamnqvists again, let them know how much we are enjoying their Alaska Adventure diary and really appreciate them sharing it with us. It's without a doubt the best on the net for a view of Airstream life with family. And then there's the fantastic scenery, wildlife, campground reviews, road condition descriptions, and general comments on Airstream living where grocery stores and fuel stations are few and far between.

Fantastic job Hamnqvists!!

Thank you! -J
