The drive is pretty good. At roughly 8500 miles, driving to Alaska isn't a bad trip, but its probably the farthest distance that most people will drive - us included. We'll have frost heaves and animal encounters. Otherwise, I don't expect any surprises.
Our purpose is to travel from Knoxville to do a VBS there. We are two people out of a team of nine who are going. The other team members are flying. Everyone is excited about VBS, cultural experiences and participating in worship.
I invite you to sit back, relax and virtually go driving to Alaska with us. We'll be gone around a month. Staff writer Abby G. will keep you informed on all things local. Her article What us a Moon Pie is a fun article. Be sure to check it out while you're waiting for my next update.
See you on the road. :-)
