Hello from the Frozen North

After 7 years with a 24' Itasca Class C, we upgraded this fall to a 2007 forest river Georgetown class A. We boonedock a lot around Alaska. We winter camp in the spring with our snowmobiles. Early summer we camp near salmon fishing with our white water rafts. Summer time we camp around the interior and Fall is fishing in Valdez. We bought this rig in Texas and drove it home. We look forward to more RVing in the lower 48 in future years.
Wayne and Cindy

Wayne and Cindy (akcampr): G'morning from Tampa, FL, and WELCOME to the iRV2 forums!! So do I have it right that you live year round in Alaska??? You mentioned picking up your Georgetown in Texas and we thought you might winter down there...not sure. At any rate, like many who have visited, Alaska is one of the few places that keeps calling us back, and, is one of the very few places where we'd consider settling down. We now bounce around, full time, (no house nor stuff, anywhere) and ofcourse kinda keep an eye out for places we might come to roost once traveling around gets less practical. Do you also own a home up there, or live in your rig? As former Northern Minnesota folks, we certainly can handle snow and cold, but, were wondering how difficult it might be to live in a MH year round in Alaska, or is buying or renting a place the better route?? After seeing the reported snowfalls in places we like, like Valdez, Haines, etc., kinda thinking that full time/year round living might NOT be the way to go. What do ya think?? Anyway, again, WELCOME and hope to meet ya sometime. Steve & Lynette

We live here year-round in a stick house. The weather is just too extreme to live year-round in an RV. We love it here, but hope to do more travelling arounde the country in the future. We have a son in the 4th grade now, but hope to become sno birds some day.

I'll also add a BIG Tennessee welcome to ya'll. I had an '04 359ts Georgetown and really liked it. No major problems to speak of-BUT I now own a d/p. I did the cruise tour last year and as all the others said "it's WONDERFUL". I don't think i'd live full time there but to visit..yes yes. Keep us posted as to the temperature lows up there so we'll appreciate what little cold weather we have.
Safe Journeys...

Welcome. Keep us posted on things happening in Alaska. We will take a cruise next Sept., the inland passage. My first cruise and hopefully the beginning of a plan to motorhome to Alaska.
