Going North!

After over a year of preparation we are finally there: A few days ago Dave and I started our 4000 mile journey up to Alaska. ATKA, our remodeled school bus, is ready to hit the road and we are, too!

Packing up Atka in Tucson – we are ready to hit the road!

We left Tucson in Arizona saying good bye again. Good bye to some really good friends who helped us a lot during the last few months, but also saying good bye to the beautiful mountain and desert scenery with sunshine almost every day. It helped a little to know that Tucson will be soon reaching the 40 C mark (100 F), so we are off to some slightly cooler places now!

Our first drive day took us up to the mountains of Flagstaff for the weekend. We spent two great days with friends and enjoying the slightly cooler mountain climate along with the Hulabaloo festival.  Thanks to some friends we had VIP tickets which meant free beer!!

Today we traveled for a few hours on the historic Route 66. For some Asian tourists, our remodelled school bus was the highlight of their day;)
