Life's good, when you run away too the mountains life has a hard time being bad. I probably jinxed it now and you'll read about me being eaten by a bear in a week except only like 3 of you will know it was in fact me who was eaten by that bear. I'm planning my life after this place now and I've got to say it's going to kick ass. First though I have to mention how I normally tell my guests about this. They ask where I live which is an oddly acceptable question here and I ask them about their travels. Yesterday though I asked somebody about where they were from and how long they were staying which are normally perfectly acceptable questions. I'm fairly certain though that this women thought I was a serial killer with how uncomfortable I made her. The guest before her had a 10 minute conversation with me about where they were from, where they had gone so far and where they were headed. It was interesting to say the least. Good way to end my shift.

My trip though. I'm going to go through Alberta, BC, and the west coast of the U.S of A for a week with my friend first. Then she is going to fly home and I'm just going to drive around for like a month and half solo. I want to do Alaska but I'll already be past that so I'm conflicted since the first week is really whatever she wants to do. I don't think Alaska is on her list. I'm not sure exactly where I'll go after that. One guests advice was not to worry about planning it too much and I'm taking that advice somewhat. I think I'll still plan a little bit so I've got a big book of American national parks to look through. We will see what I can dig up.

I'm not sure if Anchorage (nevertheless, Alaska) is on your solo trip, but hit me up for an impromptu hubski meetup! Also, the big thing that Anchorage is scared of right now is bears, we've had three mauling to deaths in the past month, which usually isn't a thing.

I envy you driving through Canada. I love the Alcan drive a lot. But maybe I've always just thought of Canada as weirder, alternative reality Alaska.
