We had been looking around for awhile, called on lots, looked at a few and finally decided on this one.
Our Alaska trip is coming up quickly! Just a few months to go. We had toyed with the idea of going in the truck, pulling a camper, but the thought of six people packed in a cab for a month was not very appealing!
We are going to drive through Canada to Alaska and spend some time there seeing the sights. On our way home we will be driving through the United States, stopping at Yellowstone for a day or two along the way.
And for me, that will be the highlight of the trip...not because of Yellowstone, although I know I will enjoy it, but because it will be my first time out west and if at all possible, we are going to a real working ranch! I'm really excited because this will be the first and maybe only time I will be able to see the things I write about in action. I've read lots of books on ranches and how they work and I've seen some really short movies, but I have never experienced it for myself. I'm working on getting in shape so I'll be able to keep up with all the activity!
We are all looking forward to the trip for different reasons.
Anyway, here's some pictures of our second home.
