Sorry I took so long to respond, however, we have been in Newfoundland for two months with the WBCCI Viking Trail Caravan, doing what the club was formed for--promoting travel! Yipee! And we have had a blast. 10lbs heavier, and dozens of memories that no one can take away.
As for Alaska, that will be another WBCCI caravan, held just after Bozeman. We will be there, I think, 65 days with travel to and from. I'm kinda in a quandry though, as I try to decide what will make the most people happy, if we take a motorhome or a trailer.
The description of the caravan is in the Blue Beret, so I won't go through that here. Gosh, I guess we could be accused of hijacking the thread except that it hasn't had a posting for a coupla' weeks.
Maybe we will run across you there?
I did meet a gentleman and his son in Port au Basque (gosh, I may have butchered that spelling) who were preparing their Airstream for a second life. The older fellow bought it new, and the son waspreparing for it to serve on his honeymoon and then many more years of travel. It was a wonderful afternoon. Paul, the son, lurks around on these forums.
