The Alamo

On the way back from Dallas we stopped at the Alamo so Chandler could see it.

Park Model

The park model is progressing nicely. The walls are ready to paint and the cupboards are in. A couple more weeks and it should be delivered.

Chandler & the beach

December 23rd and we took Chandler to the beach. The weather was great and he had a good time. We even found a dead jellyfish on the beach and he thought that was so cool.

Back on our lot

Yesterday we moved back to our lot after finishing the cement work. The lawn is growing and the flowers are planted. Everything is done that we can do until our park model arrives in January. Now we can sit back and relax for a few weeks and enjoy the warm Texas weather. It has been really nice here but it could be a little cooler, but it is much better than the cold of Alaska.

Grass growing

Spend the last few days hoeing and racking the lot and finally we got the grass seed planted. The pictures are not that good but it is now coming up and we can see the green from it. This really makes us feel at home. The weather has been warm in the day time and cool at night. It has rained off and on all day today but they can use all the rain they can get and then even more.

Leaving Denali

We left Denali National Park tuesday morning at 7:30 am Alaska time. As you can see it was snowing when we left. We traveled all day and crossed the Canada border at 5 pm. We stopped for the night at the Congdon campground in the Yukon Territory. We travel 562 miles on tuesday. Wednesday morning we got up and discovered we were having problems with the electrical system so only travel to Watson Lake, Yukon Territory and stopped for the night. Only traveled 422 miles today but hope to be back on the road in the morning. Would like to get back to the USA as soon as we can. FYI it snow today too. Just want to get where it is warm, have been cold long enough.
