Here in Soldotna, Alaska, we have been giving this 'normal life' thing a try. We both have jobs working with kids in elementary schools, working monday through friday. Its a pretty big change from what we have been used to, so its an adventure all in itself. But also makes us appreciate our summer memories so much more.
But no worries, it will not be the last of our bike travel adventures... in fact, i think it just fueled a fire for a lifelong obsession and passion. I mean, once you see the light, why live in darkness?
But overall, we are really LOVING Alaska. We love our tiny one room cabin (dream home!) and we still find time for micro adventures. Mary's parents literally live across the street (72 paces away). Which has been great because Momma Hall loves to make the most amazing homemade bread and then give it away. Here's a few pictures of what we have been up to the past few months:

|Learning the art of the redneck- snowmachining!|
