What a fabulous trip to Alaska we had! Moose wandering around outside our hotel, amazing halibut Vietnamese style, 1000 ft. drop sledding adventure, oh, and a very fun festival. Gracious hosts, free concerts, wonderful musicians, huge dances, and a warm and inviting audience. Made us feel right at home, except home isn’t an excellent hotel with a pool and free DINNER. Made us excited to be going back to Alaska in June, to Nome for the Midnight Sun Festival – we look forward to seeing some of our new friends there. Special thanks to all the Harlan handlers! He’s a handful of love, that boy, and fun to have on his first tour as roadie.

The gals face a true winter!
