Today I thought I would sort through some papers to scan and shred......but I didn't.
There are a few other things that I should have done.
I feel that I have been running since I left Mesa Verde. So, for most of the morning and afternoon, I sat in a lounge chair outside daydreaming, watching the hawks, and napping.
Tomorrow, I will go to Port Isabel to get the Texas safety inspection for my RV (it expires Nov. 30th) and then spend the night at Diane and Karl's house.
Today was for daydreaming.
I was thinking about Alaska
and reading my favorite book about Alaska.
This book was published in 2005, but any information
that may be out of date can be found on the internet.
I have read hundreds of books about Alaska: travel guides, biographies, history. This is the only book about Alaska that I kept when I moved into the RV.
I want to visit every location listed in this book. There are 8 National Parks in Alaska, this book has one chapter per park. It also includes information on the nearest town, State Parks, State or National Recreation Areas near the National Parks.
It may take several years to see everything, as I will be workamping while visiting Alaska. Even without workamping, it would still take more than one short summer season to visit every location in this book.
My plan is to "see Alaska for free". Paying for my basic needs: transportation, food and shelter by working my way across Alaska.
I am considering staying in Alaska for more that just the 4-5 month tourist season. I am working on a source of income for the winter months. For the winter months, I will need to winterize the RV and put it in storage, then find a furnished studio apartment to rent. If I decide to stay through the winter, I will stay in the southern part of Alaska. Not your typical snow-birding location, but I never said I was typical.
