So long, farewell!

Right about the time this message posts on this blog, we and our van will be on board the MV LeConte (the ferry in the photo), pulling out from the Pelican dock...probably never to return.

Goodbye Pelican . . . There are some things I will miss about you, but honestly, not enough that I think I will ever want to come back to visit...

Tonight we'll be in Juneau, and in a few days we'll catch a ferry up to Haines, and from there we will drive the 850ish miles to Anchorage.
We don't have an apartment yet, we just have a storage unit, where we will be putting most of our stuff before flying south to visit family for the next few weeks.

I will probably not be online very much in the coming weeks, but I have scheduled a number of blog posts in my absence, and I will check in from time to time.

Have a happy summer. I know I will!

Hooray! The great move is underway at last. I hope everything goes smoothly for your trip.

P.S. My husband is very disappointed that you won't be moving here. I'm always saying things like, "Jenni said..." or "Well, Jenni thinks..." Funny stuff.

I am trying to wrap my mind around how remote Pelican must be if you're at least 1,000 miles from Anchorage! Crimeny! I'd be stark raving mad living in the frozen middle of absolutely nowhere. I'm sure it's beautiful and all but I can certainly see why you'd like to move! LOL!

Good luck to you and your GROWING family on this new adventure.

Yay! Congratulations on enduring so long and finally being able to leave for "greener pastures." I look forward to hearing about your new place and adventures there.

I am so happy that everything has worked out for you! Only 8 days until we leave, as well, and I agree with your sentiments exactly.

Well Becky, nothing is set in stone yet...he doesn't have a job yet, and Mat-Su is just barely starting their interviews I think. So there's still a chance. :)
