TrawlerFest Baltimore 2011
Next week (Oct 4-10, 2011) we head for Baltimore Harbor in the View. I will be speaking twice at TrawlerFest on Friday morning. My talks are titled "Cruising America's Great Loop" and "Keeping in Touch with Friends and Family - Alternatives to the Post Card". Click here to see the full program. In the afternoon we will tour in the water boats, have dinner with the attendees, and then head back early Saturday. We will take 3 days to get to Baltimore and 3 days to get back. On Monday, Oct 3rd, the View makes a service call to Neely Coble Freightliner to get an oil change, transmission oil change and new shocks. Hopefully the new shocks will reduce the rolling on curbs and improve handling in high winds.

Alaska Loop 2011
The Alaska Loop covers an 8 week loop to Alaska in Jul-Aug 2011. The first 11 days cover the trip from Nashville north across the Missouri, Nebraska, Wyoming, Idaho and Oregon to Anacortes, WA. We drove north on Vancouver Island to Port Hardy and took ferries to Haines Alaska arriving on Day 20. Our destination was Seward, AK which we reached on Day 24. The return trip took us around Alaska then back via the Alaska Highway, the Icefield Highway, Montana, North Dakota and Minnesota. We spent 5 days with friends and family in Minnesota and returned to our boat in Kentucky on Day 55. Click here to start this trip from the beginning
