    2017 Alaska

    As most of you know, RV travel sometimes makes us change our plans and head a different direction. This has happened to us this year with our former plans of heading through Canada to Alaska, this summer. We were delayed leaving Crossville by more than 2 weeks and now, after only being in Canada 12 days we are back in the good ole' USA. We entered Canada at Sault Ste Marie and stayed at Bill and Joan Richard's Beautiful KOA in SSM, Ontario. IF you are in that area, do not miss staying with them. The city of Sault Ste Marie, ON, has tons of places to visit. We already want to return there! On the 7th of June, we headed to Thunder Bay. Stopped in a small campground at Nipigon, ON (I posted to the HDT Campgrounds) and that night the temp dropped to 32 degrees. Our Heat Pump started tripping the breaker each time it tried to start. No problem....Furnace worked great!!!! LOL Anyway, we decided we would spend the scheduled 3+ nights in Thunder Bay ( another city with lots to do) and made contact with a service center just South of Duluth, MN to get our Heat Pump checked and fixed. So THANKFUL we have an extended full service warranty on it. It will be replaced. Arrived Kerrick, MN on Sunday 12 June. Cute little campground on Oak Lake, although small the owner was right: we do fit. View of Oak Lake out our windows is GREAT, even though it's foggy, windy and 54. So, we are catching up on things that can only be handled in the USA. NOW to the real news from us: With this additional delay, we have decided to not go to Alaska this Summer. We hope and are planning on going next Summer. We will travel through Canada with limited sightseeing in Canada along the way, and spend the majority of our time in Alaska. Can you say -- a whole month in 1 area of Alaska? YEP - another relaxed way to see as much as we can see. Although, in 2014 we did cover the majority of Anchorage, Fairbanks, Seward and Chicken, there is so much more to see. So, I put up this new thread. It sounds to me like Canada and Alaska will be filled with HDTers next year!!!! Should be a FUN TIME!!!!! As soon as the work is done here, we are heading back to Canada for the Summer. I'm looking forward to a more relaxed, stay as long as we want, in more cities than we had planned for this year. We will slowly make our way from Thunder Bay West to Jasper and then Banff. Probably won't take the whole summer, so we are thinking we will cross to USA, somewhere in WA State and visit NW Washington..Whidbey Island, Olympia, etc. as time permits. We are free to do whatever until mid September when we plan to be in Denver. So, as full time HDTers, Raymond and I try to always stay flexible and not get rattled with changes. This is a wonderful adventure and we are so thankful to be able to enjoy now and for as long as we can. Safe travels to everyone and God Bless You All.
