living 550k full time
Volumes of photos, more stories than can remember. Wife is birder and we chased birds for here to there and back. Often called to help others who needed help and here we would go from Alaska to San Diego or from Nova Scotia to Missouri.
The freedom was incredible. Driving cross country was not a big deal. Often headed out with no destination in mind. We tried to chase not only birds, but the weather we liked..ie mild. Having said that we found ourself in 10 foot snow drifts in Alaska and heat waves in the south.
We blew tire out on Translabrador Highway we shall never forget, seeing a stampede of muskox headed to Prudhoe Bay, seeing mountain lion with cubs in Montana, seeing grizzly headed our way hiking in Denali, spending time in Dawson City, Yukon, Kennicot mine in MCarthy, living on sailboat in Keys inbetwee Alaskan trips, ferry from/to Newfoundland ...way too long...even short one...BUT Newfies are the best folks in world. That being said, we enjoyed every stop, visit and 99.999% of folks we met on the way.
But for some surgery, we would still be out there. 71 and 69 ages. Left 2002 on sailboat and stopped 2015.
