Count-down: 30 days until departure for Alaskan Adventure
When my husband came home one day and asked if I wanted to drive to Alaska in an RV with the kids, my first thought was, “Of course!” Then the more I thought about it, I wondered how we could make it happen. Questions and doubts swirled around my head. Could we really do it, having never even ridden in an RV before? What about the kids schooling? They attend an online school from home, but they still have deadlines they have to meet and there won’t be much connectivity on the road to Alaska. Maybe it wasn’t the right time. Maybe we should wait until next year.
Then it hit me. We had a chance, an opportunity, to go to Alaska at this moment. Not next year, or five years from now. If we didn’t do it now maybe we would never go. The opportunity may never be there again.
That’s when I decided, “Okay let’s go.” We’ll figure out all the other stuff along the way. We will make it work. And it will be the trip of a lifetime for all of us.
