A soft bed to sleep in… A waffle breakfast to wake up to… Life just doesn’t get any better than this. The kids have a couple of playmates to hang out with. John and I have wonderful people to talk to. Laundry is clean and food bags are stuffed to the gills. This has been a wonderful stop.We’ll be pushing on in a couple hours – off toward Canada. We had been planning since Fairbanks to take a big detour up through Dawson City, but decided last night to stick to the Alaska Highway – we’re not sure we’re up for another massively hilly road so soon after the Dalton.This next section of road is very remote and I’m not sure if we’ll able to get on internet until Whitehorse – about 400 miles from here. If we can, we’ll post an update, otherwise it’ll be 8 – 10 days before we can get something up in Whitehorse.
Plans for Near Future
About Nancy Sathre-VogelAfter 21 years as a classroom teacher, Nancy Sathre-Vogel finally woke up and realized that life was too short to spend it all with other people's kids. She and her husband quit their jobs and, together with their twin sons, climbed aboard bicycles to see the world. They enjoyed four years cycling as a family - three of them riding from Alaska to Argentina and one exploring the USA and Mexico. Now they are back in Idaho, putting down roots, enjoying life at home, and living a different type of adventure. It's a fairly sure bet that you'll find her either writing on her computer or creating fantastical pieces with the beads she's collected all over the world.
What are we doing now?
Nancy is an artist and metalsmith making wearable art from recycled metal and antique components.
John is busy either hiking or planning his next long-distance hike.
