Over and over, people have told us how inspired they are by our travels and our adventures.
Trail Lake Campground, Chugach National Forest, Alaska
Trail Lake Campground is located part of the Chugach National Forest and operated by the US Forest Service. Our job as campground hosts first and foremost is to live at the campground and be present. Be around. Answer questions. Keep an general eye on things, especially in the evenings. We’ll also collect fees, clean the facilities, and educate (not enforce) campers about the rules of the campground.
Trail Lake Campground is on the Kenai Peninsula between the Trail River and Kenai Lake. It’s a 100 mile drive south from Anchorage, a 24 mile drive south to Seward and 40 mile drive west to Cooper Landing.
We’ll get to explore miles of hiking and biking trails and we expect to see moose, brown and black bear, sheep and goats in this area. The other cool thing is Kenai Lake (the campground sits on its shores) marks the headwaters of the Kenai River. Can anyone say fishing, rafting, and kayaking??
The Long Drive (seriously, it’s loooooooong)
We leave May 10th for a loooooooong (4450 mile) drive north and west. We figure it’ll take 10-12 days of solid driving, but we’re giving ourselves 14 days to do it. As our new boss said, “I want you to arrive safely way more than I want you to arrive quickly.”
Once we arrive, they’ll whisk us through training and then we’ll set up home and stay through mid-September.
WE ARE SO EXCITED!
People always have a TON of questions about Alaska. It’s a hard place to get to (especially for us East Coasters) and seems really exotic. AND – we want to share Alaska with YOU! So, what are your questions? Where do you want us to go? What can we take photographs of and write about while we are there?
Send us your questions and we’ll plan to answer them throughout the summer in videos, with photographs, and in blogposts. It’ll be almost like you’re there with us! Almost. But you could come visit us…seriously. We’ve already got one friend putting his vacation notice in so he can fly up for weeks of camping and fishing adventures.
Come see us!!!
P.S. If you’re interested, we’re also working on a way to get you a “first look” at our travels this year, including new videos, a way for us to connect and answer questions, and some new swag! Stay tuned for that announcement in a couple weeks.
