Your trip must be some sort of record. In fourteen days you gave your dad a great intoduction to the West. Your father certainly looks in fine shape for his age.

Glad that you took your Dad on that trip. My two sons and my Dad had planned on doing a trip to Alasaka similar to what you did and before we could he passed away. I regret that we never were able to go. I tip my hat to you and yours. Great trip that you will never forget.

Wow what a trip!
Making the trip even in the short time is better than not making it.
Thanks for posting.

I am sitting here, the morning after I posted this trip report, overwhelmed by the kind words of you all. Thank you!

No doubt, this trip was a stretch. We were all exhausted when we returned, but today we don't remember any of the pain of the hours of mindless driving but only the memories we made with Dad during our amazing trip.

I would have loved to have taken 14 weeks to make that trip, but I only get two weeks off in the summer. When I retire in the next 5 to seven years our next trip will be leisurely. At that point Dad will only be 94!

God bless you all...and don't wait to make similar memories. There are no guarantees in life for tomorrow.


I have a motto I live by......I ain't wait'n!

And God Bless YOU for being a good, kind son to your dad. My mom was my best friend and I lost her last year (dad in 1988). I think about her and miss her every day, as well as wishing dad could have been here during her last years. Mom's motto was the same as yours and she continually told me to do it NOW whenever I told her of plans for travel, etc. As I age I certainly understand why!

Thank you for sharing your (exhausting!) wonderful, memory making trip with us. You will never regret doing this with you dad. I guarantee it!

Great great post and trip! Great job taking your dad along!

Wish my dad was still around to do stuff like this with. He lost his life to random cancer at age 52, much much to young. Still miss him dearly.
