I’m really looking forward to experiencing the beauty of Alaska in the summer. I’ve been to Fairbanks when it was minus 41 degrees, so returning in July for the American Grown Field to Vase Dinner at Scenic Place Peonies in Alaska is going to be a lot of fun … and warmer!
I’m also looking forward to the 4.5-hour drive from Anchorage to Homer once I get up there. Based on conversations with Beth VanSandt and others who have made the drive and have shared how beautiful it is, it will probably take me 6 hours.
I’m talking to some of our guests who also flying into Anchorage and driving and are interested in caravanning to Homer. Sounds like fun to me! Of course, there would be some work involved with organizing that, which is why I’m posting about the importance of planning for this magical Alaska experience.
Out of all of the dinners we’ve ever held, I really hear about the desire people have to go to Alaska the most. For some people, they are definitely coming. Wouldn’t miss it. For others, it’s just the “want” in their voice that communicates the dream-come-true opportunity it would be.
Of course, out of all of the dinners we’ve ever held, this is going to be the trickiest to get to, so I want to take a moment to encourage those of you who have expressed your deep desire to join us to start booking your flights, hotels and seats at the dinner table now.
If everyone who has said they wanted to go booked today, we’d be oversold and have a waiting list. But I understand there are planes, cars, lodging, etc. that everyone is looking at. That’s why we put together the Alaskan F2V Travel Tips. Here you’ll receive some contacts, insights and inspiring ideas on where to stay and what to do while your make the journey to Homer.
I hope to see you there and, of course, we’re happy to answer any questions you have.
Bottom line … don’t wait to save your seat!
