    This is so cute. We've driven to AK a couple of times since my DH's family is in the Wasilla/Palmer/ and Talkeetna area. However, we stopped in Whitehorse a couple of times on our way up there. Were so glad to see the McD's there after wilderness tenting somewhere in northern BC.

    Enjoy your stay in Alaska. If I were you, I'd probably be quilting with used curtains and bedding like I do here in Poland since probably not much is available there in the Yukon.

    Your part of the world is beautiful, though!

    My DH is flying there in early Sept (from Poland) to visit his family.
    I just loved that drive...we actually had our van flown from Bethel into Anchorage and then drove down to OK! My cousin is here now from Edmonton and her hubbys daughter is moving to Yukon!
    Lucky girl!
    I fell in love with Whitehorse, Dawson creek, and Tok!

    Would that be Dawson City in the Yukon, or Dawson Creek in B.C.? We also enjoyed our time in the Yukon and Alaska. When we first went there, we couldn't understand why people would drive up there every year, but after being there, I can understand now. Lots of nothing in so much of it, but so interesting in the rest.

    Oh Thank you!!!! I'm so glad I was able to give you a little something to do. I've made it several times, one time in silk on linen and made it into a pinkeep for a friend. I think that was my favourite rendition of it.

    and for seafood, you HAVE to find a restaurant called the GALLEY...it is THE best place to eat in Anchorage...well, unless you want steak then it is the Paris club..and for prime rib it would be Snowgoose down town..hehehe

    I really miss Alaska...you guys will have a blast!
    Maybe my fave artist will be in town at the gallery..Barbara Lavallee! Stop in and give her a shout out!

    You will find that Anchorage is VERY artsy/crafty...so many great fiber/textile artists and craftsmen are there or in that area!
    OH YAY!!! I love that it's artsy/crafty, I really enjoying soaking up the creative juices. Thanks for the tips on where to go.

    MTS, thank you, Jen sure makes me laugh. She really enjoyed being my guest blogger.

    And yes, healing away wonderfully, I've learned to type now 9 fingered and have become quite sufficient with my right hand.

    Thanks for asking.
