Alaska - 2007
This is the story of 4 seniors who wanted to travel to Alaska by automobile (van) from the East Coast of the US.
Rose & Arnie live in New Jersey, Jeanne & Ken (Iím Ken) live in North Carolina. We also used to live in New Jersey, where Arnie and I worked for the same company for many years. We are both retired now.
We have traveled together over the years. Last year we were in Australia and cruised back to San Francisco. So we know each other quite well and figured we could get along fine on this adventure.
