Sorry for the lack of posts this past week! As some of you may know, I was at our Alaskan home for the past two weeks.
And I am excited to share that I created some videos for you all! Today marks the first video of my little series. This was my first attempt at vlogging, or even making a youtube video in general. Vlogging is something that takes time to get a hang of, but I think I did an okay job. Considering it was my first time.
Vlogs and youtube videos in general are fun because if allow you all to see more of my personality, and you will soon learn that I can be a weird individual! hahaha, no shame!
Anyways, here is my FIRST vlog of my Alaskan Adventure series! This video is probably the most boring out of the bunch because it was our first day and most of that day was spent traveling. But stay tuned till Wednesday when I’ll post the second video from my mini series!
Any fellow Alaskan will know the brand XTRATUF, as it is owned by nearly every person I have come across while living in Alaska. Alaska is a bit tougher then most states in the US, and your standard “yellow rain boots” just won’t cut it. With all the slippery, tough rocks and rugged landscape, not many other boots would last long.
When living in Alaska, mostly Southeast Alaska, rain becomes a very familiar thing. One year while living in Ketchikan, we experienced 355 days of rain, leaving only ten days of the year where there was no rain.
And on rainy days like today, the XTRATUF is an “extra” good friend.
As you may be able to tell, our rain boots are put to good use
Today, July 17th marks the day of our arrival to my birthplace, Alaska! After a grueling six and a half hour flight from Orlando to Seattle and an overnight stay with our very large cat, followed by another short one and a half flight from Seattle to Ketchikan Alaska, and finishing off with a 45 minute boat ride, we finally made it to our home. Meyers Chuck is a very small community with no gas stations, no roads, no cars, no stores, nothing. All that you will find in Meyers Chuck are the wonderful people that reside here, most of them only during the summer months.
I thought I would share with you our little cabin in the woods.
And keep checking back for more updates on what’s going on in Alaska for the next two weeks.
