    I’d love to go to Alaska, but I always hate leaving NYC during the summer since it’s so nice here during this season. I suppose for a week though it would totally be worth it, especially after seeing your writeup on Denali!

      You should try renting out your place on Airbnb. The hubs and I did it last winter. We were living in Big Bear, CA (a little mountain town) but still wanted to travel. We got a lockbox so we didn’t have to be there for key exchanges and the money we made paid for our whole trip!

        Wow, I didn’t think of that, but that’s actually a brilliant idea. I’ve only thought of using Airbnb for renting places for me to stay, I guess I never thought of my own house as a vacation place. But, one person’s home is another person’s vacation, right? with what hotels cost in the city I bet I could pay for Alaska easy. Thanks for the advice!

    I’ve been trying to get up to Oregon all year… and it looks like I just won’t be able to do it this summer. How is Oregon in the fall? Still worth a visit, or should I just try again next year?

      I’ve never actually been to Oregon in the fall, but I heard it’s beautiful. Lots of fall foliage. I am currently roadtripping the US and should be landing in Oregon in August, so I’ll be sure to write a post for you!
