Blogging At 10,000+ Feet En Route

So now I'm blogging at above 10,000 feet.
And we're on our way to Fairbanks.
Yes, Fairbanks as in Fairbanks, Alaska.
That's quite far north (even for Alaska) but we're told that the weather there today is 70 degrees.
Let's hope it stays that way; at least for awhile.
As you can imagine this is a l-o-n-g trip but we're told we have to do it because Alaska is so beautiful that it's just a must, must, MUST see. Everybody has told us that Alaska must be experienced. And so, we're going to experience it -- pretty much all of it.
It really is (for many people, anyway) one of those once-in-a-lifetime sort of trips.
For the next two weeks -- whenever we can -- we'll be blogging from Alaska and filling you in on all the details.
Meanwhile, we're still in transit and the more I travel the more I think of a song that Noel Coward wrote many years ago: Why Oh Why Do The Wrong People Travel When The Right People Stay At Home?
But more on that (maybe) later.
In the meantime, North To Alaska!
