Welcome to our trip journal for 2017.

We stayed in So Cal for a while longer to continue some medical treatment in January. Then our refrigerator, which was only 1 year and 5 months old (with a one year warranty) stopped working. Then the coach was in the shop for diagnosis and repairs and we were off to Banning and Indio, and eventually back to Garden Grove to finish off Doctor rechecks and to have our taxes done.

While in Orange County, we had to replace our toilet and our shower enclosure. Things do get old and eventually you need a new ones because the replacement parts are obsolete.

Our goal for this summer was to travel in Alaska again and to see Jasper and Banff before heading to Portland for another Cousin Reunion in September.

We crossed into Alaska, stayed in Tok & Glennallen, and moved on to Palmer/Wasilla area north of Anchorage. We also relaxed at the Kenai Elks Lodge for a while and headed back to Palmer Elks when we couldn't get into Homer or Seward. All the campgrounds were completely full in July from the "Alaska Dip Netting Season" all over the Kenai peninsula.

Next on the map was Chitina, McCarthy and Valdez before heading out of Alaska. We didn't make it to Jasper and Banff because they were too booked up this summer due to Canada's 150th Anniversary of their National Parks, so all campgrounds were taken very early in the year.

We are meeting many fun, friendly folks from all over the US, Canada and Europe in the campgrounds. I'm sure we will be re-meeting them along the way.

We continued traveling south to Idaho, over to Washington, down to Oregon and through California. We settled into our membership campground in the mountains above Palm Springs for the month of October and the fun of Halloween. We finished off the year by staying at our Garden Grove Elks Lodge as usual.

Merry Christmas everyone! Larry, Cheryl and Daisy.
