July 2013 Feature Blog of the Month : Travel By Chance !

(Runner-Up : Tumbleweed for their interesting factory tours in the NorthEast)

Here it is.  It's the inaugural edition of JourneyLinks' Feature Blog of the Month!  

I had no idea it would be this difficult to choose one.  After all, I'm "keeping it light " I have no specific criteria. I'm simply choosing the blog that piques my interest the most. Easy, right?  But even though I'd narrowed it down to 4 blogs by last night, it was still difficult to choose!

Travel By Chance
I finally decided on Travel By ChanceI actually got the opportunity to meet Dan in Carson City, Nevada a couple years ago.  He and his wife have done regular workamping gigs in The Grand Canyon.  Dan also opened my eyes Golden Spike Rallies, which are railroad/RV enthusiasts.  I chose his blog this month for his intriguing Alaska/British Columbia/Oregon adventure...

Dan and Patty began July's journey in Seward, Alaska where they visited the Alaska Sea Life Center.  It was then off to Ninilchik for one night where they discovered an interesting harbor. After settling in Homer, Alaska, Dan captures an exciting moment in wildlife photography.  You DON"T want to miss what this eagle does next, and it's all caught on camera...

Travel By Chance : July 4
Independence Day was all about parades and cookouts.  The Chances spent the next few days enjoying the sites in Homer, Alaska -- a town with personality, no doubt...

Travel By Chance : July 6

The Chances had a little misadventure in Girdwood before driving the 2nd-largest highway tunnel in North America.  Some of their next few stops included Whittier, Tok, and Laird Hot Springs, British Columbia before having this little scare...

Travel By Chance : July 20

Finally, after a major windshield repair, they reached one of my favorite destinations -- Newport, Oregon...

Terrific job.  Keep up the good work!
