North to Alaska!

I couldn't wait....
They were coming for breakfast.
I got up early, prepared the fresh fruit,
yogurt, fresh Granola and Savory Scones.
I was ready, watching and waiting....
It's called Anticipation.

I ran to the end of my driveway and there they were.
Perfect timing.

Fresh Continental Breakfast around the Island.
What better way to start their adventure.
A prayer of blessing for safety.
They even added "Tasty Recipes at Home"
to their side will be a good reminder
about the good old fashioned home cooking that they are missing.

That's my Girl!

Five teachers.
Summers Off!
Spare Time!
2600 KM!
North to Alaska!
Leaving: July 12,
It was of high priority that
this trip begin after the World Cup Soccer Game.

By the way...
the dog did not go along,
I'm dog sitting for six weeks.
Group returns August 19th!
You can follow along on their ride.
Bicycling to Alaska on Highway 97!

Every night I check their travels and destinations.

I've always envied those teachers for having two full months off!
Some day I'm gong to try the same thing!
(two months off)


  1. Exciting trip. I think the Professor would love that...

  2. What a fun adventure! I'll bet they will have some wonderful memories and some new muscles for their efforts!

    That will be some ride! Dairymary

  4. North to Alaska is a fabulous idea...but I would choose a different method of getting there. Only a few would be up to the cycling challenge! Good for them. I'm off to check their progress.

  5. I just went back to The Lettered Cottage (the place I saw the the video) and the company is offering a 10 percent discount if your use the special code. You can get it from her blog.

  6. I know where part of your heart will be for the next month!

  7. Wow. That sounds SO fun! It was great to share in their excitement. Good pictures!

  8. Wow! what an adventure.
    2600 K ??? Did anyont figure out how far that is? oh my ! I would think 26 was far .. without the zeros... smile..
    I wish them the time of their lives... and I envy them the shape they will be in when they come home!

  9. Wow...what a great adventure. That will be quite the trip. Better plan a big night for their return!

  10. Yes! it is a BIG trip! we're almost half ways already, it's amazing how small the province feels when you realize you can actually bike it (although it will take us five weeks!) each day becomes its own adventure and journey with it's own goals to meet. Bike touring is about the finite details and moment you are in, not the big picture! that's too overwhelming:)

  11. What an rxciting trip they are on, Marg! It's wonderful do things like this when young and carefree. I wish them safe travels and exciting vistas!

  12. Marg I checked the bicyclist's blog and I saw they are having some wonderful adventures along with a lot of hard work and some hardships along the way. I'm thinking about them and praying for them.
