Alaska On the Go Events: Coming your way!

Visit for regular updates and family fun activities in Alaska.

Visit for regular updates and family fun activities in Alaska.

Now that I’ve returned from the dry deserts of Mexico, preparations are in full swing for the official release of Alaska On the Go: Exploring the 49th state with children, and – poof- so are requests for presentations.

Readers and fans of Alaska On the Go will have a number of chances in March and April to learn more about our mission to provide “AK Kid” an authentic Alaska experience, no matter the destination. I’ll share my favorite places and spaces in Alaska, and a few tips for navigating a state twice the size of Texas. Photos? Oh, yes, there’ll be photos.

Anyhow, plan to stop by at one or all of these events, and be sure to watch the homepage of the book’s website for updates and additions.

Bring the kids, bring friends, bring the grandparents. After all, we’re all in this big, wide, world together!

Want to host an event? Email me at I’d love to meet and greet other family travel enthusiasts.

I wish this book had been available when I first visited Alaska... especially with 4 children.

Next time I'll have a signed copy in hand!
