Hello from Washington

I was wondering how many people really read our blog?  So if you like what we have written over the last few years please comment and let us know if you want us to keep writing about our travels.  We enjoy what we do and the people we have come in contact with.
So there is a little bit about what we have been doing since we left Alaska this summer. We went to Denver 5 days after Alaska and worked a Rally. From there we headed to the office to meet all of the new staff and pick up supplies for a FMCA Rally. On our way there we had new brakes installed on the coach, They are very good disk brakes and the trailer stops very good. After that we head to Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta for a great 10 day Balloon Fiesta.
While here we had a little truck problem and had to have a new rear-end put into the truck.  Yes, number 3 in 3 years, so this time I went back to the 4:11 gears, had 4:63 installed and got a 2 year warranty this time. So far so good.
After the Balloon Fiesta we headed back to Washington to see the grand kids and our kids.  It has been good, we have seen the kids and grand kids too.  We are going to be here tell Thanksgiving then we are heading south for Rose Parade.  Hope to get some great pictures to show everyone.
So that brings us to were we are today, If I do not get very many commits then this blog will be closed down.  It is easier to post on face book so I am still up in the air about this blog.

Alaska done heading to Denver Rally now

OK!!! I have been lazy, but enjoying the guest we have been traveling with.  We finished up our Alaska trip on the 12th.  They were a great group of people ans hope some day to have them all on another trip with us. We left Prince George, BC about 11:00 AM and got to Hinton, AB at just after 4:30 PM. Two of our guest were at the KOA also.  The next morning we were up early for a long drive to Calgary, AB by way of Edmonton, AB.  The road was a 100% better and we did make pretty good time, instead of driving back down through the rocky's.  This morning we were up again and doing another 300 mile plus road trip to Great Falls, MT.  We have 3 more day of driving to get to Denver by the 17th for the start of this Rally.
I did down load some pictures that I want to share with everyone from when we went to Juneau and got to see Humpbacks Whales bubble netting.  We have been very lucky on this trip, but this had to be a highlight.  There were 9 whales in these pictures. We seen then right off the back of the boat about 50 yard the second time they came up. I did get the splash of one whale breaching totally out of the water. Cyndy was able to video tape it with the phone, but having a little problem getting it to the computer.  As soon as I get it over I will post it.  So here are some great picture of them.

Hello

Yes we have been busy and yes I have been lazy also.  It has gotten easier to post pictures on Facebook then here.  The only problem is when taking pictures with the 35 MM Camera it is a little harder to get them to Facebook.  Anyway I am thinking about getting rid of the blog because Facebook is easy and fast.  But I have not given up on this yet.
So here is a mess of pictures I have taken in the last 4 weeks.
 This was our trip into Denali, it was a great clear day and we seen the Great One in all of its glory.


We seen a few bears but this is the only one I got good pictures of.

Seen a lot of Ptarmigans.
These were taken when on boat ride out of Seward, AK





These were taken yesterday while out on a Cruise in Valdez, we went to Meares Glaciers
 Stellar Seals

 Sea Otters
 Harbor Seals

 Meares Glacier caving















 These Puffins when they take off are like skipping a rock.

  Last night we went over to the fish hatchery and seem a few Seals eating smorgas board style.

Anyway we are leaving Valdez tomorrow and heading South towards Skagway, where we will be for a few days. Then on ward to the end of our trip.
