Alan Adaschik's dream was to visit Alaska; America's last frontier and a place which abounds with wildlife and unspoiled wilderness. Upon retirement, Al and his wife Gayle sold everything and bought a thirty-seven foot Damon Intruder motor home to make his dream a reality. qAn Alaskan Adventureq is a narrative about Al and Gayle's trip which highlights the places they visited and the wonderful things they experienced along the way. qAn Alaskan Adventureq commences in Indiana following a visit with Al's relatives who live there.
