Women RVers on the Road to Alaska

Those of you who read my blog regularly know that I have a number of friends who RV.  A lot of them are women who travel alone but get together with friends whenever the opportunity presents itself.  Some of them full-time and some part-time.  I thought you might be interested in what some of them are doing this summer.  

Picture a group of five independent women on their way to Alaska.  They are traveling more or less in a group but that doesn't mean they follow each other all the time like an old fashioned wagon train.  They set certain stops and arrange to meet up.  Sometimes someone will leave early or late or stop along the way to check out someplace different than the rest.  

Birdie from The Egg and I travels in a Class A and is a full-timer.  She started in a Casita hence the name of her blog and then moved up to a larger Class C and into her beautiful Class A. Birdie and I have camped together a number of times and always have fun. Liz from Where's Liz-2012? is also a full-timer and recently moved up from a Roadtrek to a small Class C.  I've met Liz in person several times.  Now, all the other women I know from WomenRV, an online forum just for women.  Tina from Expeditions and Adventures is also traveling in a small Class C with her three small, medium, and large furkids all of whom are pretty experience travelers.  Next we have Mitch who is traveling with a small bundle of fur in a small travel trailer.  As you can tell by A Bacon Collar for Abby, Mitch has a wild sense of humor.  In Nan and Bear On The Road, you'll find adventures with Nan and Bear and this time they have another furry friend with them.  Right now the ladies are all in Montana and they've had snow and plenty of rain.  Stop by and check out their adventures.  Some of the women were a little worried about the fact that they all have blogs but, if you check them out, you will find they each bring a different perspective to what they see.

Two other women who belong to the WomenRV forum are already in Alaska.  Anita, Anita's Adventures 2012, headed up real early so you'll have to hurry to catch her.  Beth, On The Road With Beth, is also a full-timer traveling with her dog.  This summer she is in Valdez, Alaska working on a tour boat.

I hope you enjoy meeting some of my friends.

  1. I really enjoyed reading about these women who are making the great Alaska trip. I wanted to do it but not alone, and just never connected with others who felt the same way.
