Thanks to everyone who made last Thursday’s “Travel Secrets: A Love Story” event a success. There were prizes. There was pizza. And planes–don’t forget the planes!

I was more than a little sentimental, since this event was our first in-person gathering in three years. We got some of the band back together:

  • Special thanks to Phyllis Kilgore and the crew at the Alaska Aviation Museum for hosting us.
  • A big “AMEN” to our friends at Moose’s Tooth for bringing the pizza, the beer and the magic-making bartenders (Phil & Bailey).
  • “Huzzah” to our Travel Story presenters: Amana Mbisi recounted taking Alaskans on safari in Tanzania. Then Jody Overstreet shared her incredible images of living her best trailer life while traveling to the farthest reaches of the U.S. and Canada.
  • A round of applause to folks who brought awesome prizes, including: Alaska Airlines, Alaska Railroad, Alaska & Yukon Tours, Planeket, Rest Angles & Alaska TourSaver
