We quit our jobs and sold everything in Fairbanks, AK to fulfill our dream of catching a fish in every state. We plan to take about a year to travel the country in our 5th wheel before settling down in New England to be closer to family.

Very interesting couple with an interesting plan

A very nice and interesting couple, traveling from Alaska and planning to fish in all of the lower 48 states. We are their third state, and they did get to fish, but didn't catch anything, but that's not required. We were their first boondockerwelcome host, I hope we gave a good impression. We would have them back anytime. Oh, and I have to mention the smoked salmon from Alaska that they shared with us, delicious!
