Sharon & Jon Hubbell travel blog
We are Sharon and Jon Hubbell. We live full-time in our 36-foot Beaver motorhome and have lived and worked in the Olympia, Washington, area for nearly 40 years. We began our full-time travel in March 2005. These entries tell of our travel adventures for 2012 – our eighth year.

The highlight of the year was our cruise-tour to Alaska provided by our children to celebrate our fiftieth wedding anniversary. In June we flew to Fairbanks and traveled by bus and train to Denali National Park and Talkeetna and finally to Whittier where we boarded the Sapphire Princess for our trip down the Inside Passage to Vancouver, British Columbia.

The rest of the year included family and friends scattered around the countryside; discovery of the Center of the World in Felicity, California; a long delayed stay in the North Cascades National Park and Lake Chelan; and a number of repairs and upgrades to our home on wheels. The year ended with a three-month stay in Sparks, Nevada, where we spent October through December working as “Amazon Elves” during their Christmas Peak Season.
