Welcome to the journey

For years I have dreamed of taking a family vacation to Alaska. I always said “someday”. Somewhere around 2006, I realized that unless I set a date and started planning for it, that “someday” would never come. With that, I decided to put a plan in place and make it happen.

I chose 2015 as the year of the trip. My oldest would be 15 and my (then) youngest would be 11. Both old enough to remember this adventure for the rest of their lives, and far enough out in the future to allow me to make the trip happen. Alas, life gets in the way sometimes, and now I am remarrying and have a 2-year-old little girl to round out my offspring.

The trip is still happening, and with only a 1-year delay. It will be a 9-week full summer adventure.

It is here that I will write about this trip – the planning, the preparation, and the experience itself.

I hope you follow along. If you have advice (from first-hand experience), or want to learn from mine, feel free to comment on the articles along the way.
