A Wildfire Changed Our RV Plans + Video

As we headed north on the Parks Highway, a distant hue of smoke on the horizon turned into a smokey fog on the other side of Wasilla.  The plan was to take our RV to Nancy Lake State Recreation Area for some workamping (working + camping), fishing, and kayaking.  Well that was the plan, but there was a wildfire burning 25 minutes up the road closing the highway and our campground was only 10 minutes from the frontlines.

We decided to see how far we could get up the highway before it was closed.  Not far.

It’s Feels Like Spring, Should We De-winterize The RV?

40 degree temps & ice-free roads really make me want to de-winterize the motorhome.  It’s a gamble, this time of year because the weather can flip like a switch.

It’s that time of year, Alaska’s full of activity and coming back to life!  As the days get longer Alaskans come out hibernation.  This reemergence is an amazing feeling that can only be explained by gaining daylight and changing of seasons.  It also means RV season is not too far away!
