exemplify the fine art of making the most of every moment!
Don't let the cities and the roadways fool you. There's nothing tame about Alaska. It's still a land of rugged wildness---a place where you can breathe deeply, stretch out stiff limbs and remember what it is like to be alive again. Many RVer's understand this, so instead of scheduling a whirlwind tour of the state (going a mile wide and an inch deep), they pick one specific part of the state to really "get to know," to richly experience and enjoy. Make no bones about it---the quality of their Alaskan vacation time is unparalleled.
So if there is one piece of advice we could give you, as you plan for your Alaskan vacation, it is this: make it a priority to fully enjoy the piece of Alaska that you find yourself in. Walk on the spongy tundra. Breathe in the salty freshness of the river mouth. Stay up late for a one-of-a-kind "midnight sun" sunset. It doesn't have to cost money, because it's not about money. It's simply about engaging with your surroundings and drinking deeply of the richness all around you.
As the saying goes, a good motto both for RVer's and for the rest of us,
"Wherever you are, be all there."
