This is going to be a very unusual post, usually my posts here are all about educating folks about the joys of being a Nomad and how to do it, or inspiring you to get out and travel by sharing my wanderings. Both of those will be a little bit true today, but mostly today will be all about me being a proud Papa!!
I grew up in Alaska since I was 6 years old and had two sons born and raised there, but after 45 years of living through the extremely long, cold (and worst of all) dark winters, I had had enough–I had to leave!! Fortunately, my reaching early retirement age and my youngest son (Robert) turning 18 happened to coincide so in 2006 I made the hardest, move of my life and left Alaska permanently. Boy, I gotta tell you, I shed a lot of tears over that! I was leaving the only home I had ever known and my sons, who I loved so much–so I cried a lot of tears on that trip down the Alcan!
