Taking Another Step

Last Friday we headed out to do some shopping and thought we’d stop by and take another look at cargo trailers. Expecting them to be closed after 5pm, but sure enough, someone came out to greet us. After looking inside a couple trailers we desided that a 20×8 footer would be best for us. We bought one! Well, we placed a down payment on one anyway. Today, we go to pick the trailer up, YAY. We still need to find a good spot to park it so that we have good access to be able to load things up. I’ll have a picture later.

1 week from tomorrow we’ll be in Alaska! 🙂 Even if it is just for a short time.

Photos

As you can see above I have a new link to Photos. This will be, I hope, the area that I’ll post most on my pictures from our travels. At this time, it is only in testing until we take our short vacation.

Tax Day & 15 Days

Tax day has come and gone. That’s one thing we’ll have less of once we move, taxes. Alaska doesn’t have state income taxes and most areas don’t have sales taxes either. The areas that do are quite small, the most I’ve seen is 3.5%, compared to the damn 6% Michigan puts on.

15 days until our quickie vacation.

Anchorage Bound

We’re headin’ up for a weekend 🙂
May 1st – May 4 is all, but it will give us a chance to look around a bit. We arrive in Anchorage at about 2:25pm Thursday and leave Anchorage at 4:30pm Sunday. This gives us 2 full days and most of a third. We’re staying at The Hotel Alyeska. The hotel is about 45 minutes to the south of Anchorage in Girdwood. The plan is to head north into the Mat-Su Valley the first day to check out Palmer and Wasila. Hopefully we’ll have time to drive up into Hatchers Pass to. The second day we’ll drive south toward the town of Kenai around Turnagain Arm thru the Kenai Mountains. Our last day, up till time of flight, we’ll spend in downtown Anchorage.
