Our Last Day in Alaska



What we did on our last day…

1. We learned about the history of Anchorage.

The Oscar Anderson House Museum is a historical museum. The structure was built in 1915 by early Anchorage resident Oscar Anderson. Anderson claimed to be the 18th person to set foot on what is now Anchorage. The structure was the first wood-frame house in Anchorage.


2. Went on a walk along the coast.

Owen is a fan of Survivor. We bought him this buff and he’s been wearing it since.

I packed two things: workout clothes and clean underwear. That’s all you need.

I did spot the bunk where Desmond from LOST was hiding in. He was the man who had to push a button every X-minutes.

We are Pam, Richard and Owen. It was three years ago when we embarked on this journey. We sold our house, cars and belongings. We said good bye to our jobs, friends and family. We purchased a travel trailer and had an adventure of a lifetime. We took homeschoolng to another level. Education on the go, our family was in tow and we explored the Pacific Northwest, Alaska and a little bit of Europe. We hope to inspire others looking for a dramatic change. Remember, not all who wander are lost. As of 2017, our trailer is tucked away and we are settled in Northern California.
