Greetings From Alaska!

Just dropping in to say hello! After many months of searching, my wife and I settled on a 2017 Minnie Winnie 31K. We've taken it out twice since we drove it off the lot a month ago and will never go back to tent camping again!

Congratulations!!! We have a 27Q and are extremely happy with it. We're from Anchorage and hope to see you sometime. Maybe when the Eagle River campground reopens.

I drove by there about 2 weeks ago and they are still unfortunately closed from earthquake damage. I havenít called yet to see if they have an ETA on when they will open. Itís a shame since itís such a nice campground.

I just saw in the newspaper today (Friday, 6/7) that they have finished the repair to the access road early and the campground is to open this weekend. (A significant part of one lane slumped during the big earthquake.)

We would try to go this weekend but we already committed to having a garage sale, so we're stuck in town. Maybe next weekend!
