We are on the road to Alaska! We have a 10-day road trip planned to move me to Anchorage. Mom and my dog, Abby-Li, are riding with me as we pull a 5’x8′ trailer behind my Ford Explorer for nearly 4,000 miles. We will try to post briefly every couple of days or so to keep you posted on our progress. More real-time updates are available on my Facebook page at facebook.com/kerrionmission.
We left my hometown of White Deer, Texas, at 6:15 a.m. on Monday, May 23 and arrived in Cheyenne, Wyoming, in 10 hours and 45 minutes. We covered 530 miles across the Texas Panhandle, Oklahoma, Colorado, and barely into Wyoming.
We can report a thoroughly uneventful trip, for which we are grateful! We saw lots of great countryside, antelope, and prairie dogs. We had decent gas mileage in spite of our heavy trailer and climbing in elevation. Thankful for a safe day 1!
Another long day on the road, but we did a little sight-seeing to break it up and stretch our legs. We covered all of Wyoming and about 3/4 of Montana. We spent about 14 hours traveling today, including a stop at the Little Bighorn Battlefield Memorial in Montana. It was a great stop and let us walk around for a bit to avoid “saddle sores.”
Abby-Li has been a real trooper on the road and loves standing on the center console every once in a while just to make sure we are staying on track. The rest of the time, she snoozes in the backseat.
