I have been organizing our pictures we took when we drove to Alaska in 2002…(no camper then). We were gone one month, 11,000 miles…and made the decision that we would get back some day…As I sit here looking out at the snow, cold and icy outside…why the heck am I dreaming of the Great White North, where it is snowy, icy and cold???
HERE ARE JUST A FEW REASONS……
MATANUSKA GLACIER THROUGH THE WINDOWS
We stayed at the Lone Rifle Lodge, overlooking this glacier…It was a hotel, with restaurant and bar in the middle of nowhere….and a view to die for!!
Boy, I sure am gettin' a yearning for that absolutely pristine wilderness you can only get in Alaska… We really must give it some serious thought….However, you just can’t decide your going to RV to Alaska and leave the next day!! Food for thought….
Last night was date night….We went to a different place…I am not one who likes to create too many “patterns” …I like to switch it up every now and then…(McGuyver considers himself lucky to still be here!)…As it turned out …the drinks were a tad high….McGuvyer had a can of Bush Lite (no, really??), I had a glass of White Zin wine (which they poured out of a little bottle, just like they do at the Moose Lodge)…Ambiance, $1.00, cost of drinks, $7.50, reasons for leaving…many…We had our one drink each and hit the road for the all too familiar, but cheaper Sandwich Moose Lodge…This is where we can have the exact same drinks for $ 4.00…..Yes, we are cheap….
They have a very nice bar, and Saturday night is they serve Prime Rib and Porterhouse Steaks with salad bar…
Our bartender is most always Terri Stemmet (on the left)..and ALWAYS very friendly…
THIS IS JUST TO SHOW THAT MCGUYVER AND I CAN CLEAN UP ON OCCASION!!
Today Den and I drove up to see Uncle Jr. and Aunt Jeanette….which is worth one whole blog on it’s own…that will beTuesday!!
The weather man just came on and said we are in for a blizzard, (yes, I did say blizzard!) on Tuesday and Wednesday…up to 1 foot of snow or more with 50 mph winds and cold temps…HEY…I WAS JUST KIDDING WHEN I SAID “BRING IT ON” IN MY LAST BLOG….REALLY!!!!!!
SEE YA TUESDAY..IN MY MUKLUKS, PARKA AND SNOWPANTS…WITH A BRANDY MANHATTAN IN HAND!!!
