    Driving to Kenai

    Today’s travels took us from Anchorage to Kenai. The drive was described by the convention sponsors thusly: The 3-hour (145-mile) ride from Anchorage to Soldotna on the Seward and Stering Highways is nothing less than magnificent, traveling first along breath-taking Turnagain Arm with wonderful views of glacier-capped mountains across the inlet, and then through a mountain pass before you drop…

    On a Jet Plane

    Day 1 of my Alaska trip was mostly spent in the air. Our flight out of Denver was at 6:10 a.m. It usually takes about 40 minutes to get to the airport, so allowing time to get through security and such, we left home at 3:45 a.m. Ugh! The first leg of our trip took us to Salt Lake City.…

    Washington Trip

    The second weekend of June was my last convention trip of the season, and this time Lyle got to go with me! I really missed him traveling with me (and doing the loading/unloading and driving) on my other trips this year. This trip was to Seattle, one of our favorite cities. We were even able to sneak away for a…

    Virginia Trip

    The first weekend of June I was part of a larger team that hosted the Sonlight booth at the HEAV convention in Richmond, Virginia. I would have liked to see a little bit of the historic district, having never been to Richmond before… or Virginia, really, for that matter. But… it was a business trip, so sight-seeing was not on…

    Where Did I Leave Off?

    Once upon a time I used to blog… It’s been awhile, I know. I guess you’d like to know about some of the things that have been keeping my life so busy and my schedule filled, wouldn’t you? Because I know you are just avidly interested in all my Ramblin’s! Well, some of you are, anyway. I’m pretty sure. And…

    Spring Update

    And again, weeks have gone by without an update… but by now I’m sure you know what that means, right? Busy-ness on the home front! Last time I posted from Fairbanks, Alaska hoping to report in with pictures of the Northern Lights. Sadly, I didn’t get to see them. I had found out, just a day or two before I…

    Sight-seeing in Alaska

    My hotel room in Anchorage faced toward the water, but there were tall buildings in the way, so my view was limited to a narrow opening between the buildings. There was a beautiful sunset Monday evening, the day I arrived. After that, the skies were mostly gray and not beautiful. Also, the conventions kept us busy so there wasn’t a…

    Day 2 in Anchorage

    Today is the 2nd day of the Anchorage conference. Our booth is next to our sister company, BookShark, and the 4 of us have been having a good time, though there hasn’t been much time for sightseeing. We do have weekend off, so I’m hoping the weather will be clear enough to get some nice pictures. I would love to…

    North to Alaska!

    You see the green trees through the window? That’s what the view from any window ought to be in mid-April. Enough of the slush and snow, for cryin’ out loud! Duluth and Denver oughta be ashamed! Would love to linger in the Seattle springtime, but I’m only here for a couple hours today. Headed on north for my Alaska adventure…
