living, loving, and laughing
our way around the world

Where in the World is Dutch DeMichiel

The swine flu seems to be a distant pandemic and America's confidence with itself is on the rise.  Time to get the Economy moving, so I think I will begin to travel North and wait for the gas prices to begin to rise. 

Freedom comes with a price, and for me that price is fun, food, and enjoying my family.  Wherever we roam, we have each other and the distinct advantage of saying what do you want to do today? 

Well, today I going to live life with no regrets and a hope that tommorrow will be as great as today!

  Here I am on top of the Harding Ice Field in Seward, Alaska.  This trail is at the entrance to the Exit Glacier and is one of the best hikes in Alaska.   Pushing to the top with Rita and the kids was challenging. Once on top the views were Awesome and the sense of Accomplishment provided me with the energy to hike back down. 

Luckily it was a great day and we started out at about 2:00 P.M.  We climed over 3500 vertical feet over 4 miles and at the end we treked thru alot of snow.  We stay on top for about a 1/2 hour and let the boys slid down the glacier drifts and then began our descent which was kinda scary.  We were the last people on top until we met some Europeans heading up at like 6:00 P.M. 

We finally arrived at the truck around 10:30 P.M. hungery and tired. We quickly hit the Safeway in town and had a promptu cookout on the back of the truck bed.  What a great day.  I heard a guy say it was the best hike in Alaska and I would have to agree.  Hopefully Mt. Mckinley maybe in the near future.

As America's Guest across this great land of ours, I"ve had the pleasure of encountering all kinds of interesting people and activities.  I hope I can tell you and even show you some of my escapades over the last year.  I even ask myself sometimes is this really happening.

I'm happy to say that everything I've done really has. Be it fishing for halibut near an active Volcano or riding the Budwieser Truck down Bourbon Street nothing beats living on the road and doing whatever you want.
