The two RV Gypsies
went on an ATV backcountry tour
for the third time in
Palmer, Alaska
July 14, 2016

Alaska Backcountry ATV Adventure Tour - not a tour that the two RV Gypsies would recommend unless you are a very experienced ATV rider because the guides were negligent in their duties and Karen had a serious accident, and is being requested to pay full price for the ATV.

However, the day started out wonderful and everyone was happy and excited. Only about two minutes of instructions were given to everyone.

(note: This was the 3rd time the two RV Gypsies took this same trip and the other two times with a different guide was absolutely wonderful). The other trips can be found by using the TOC button at the top of any page and choosing the letter A.

Lee and Renee Duquette rode in a double ATV and were at the back of the line. Renee took most of the pictures since she was not driving. So there were not a lot of photos of Lee or Renee taken. But Renee does not like her photo taken anyway. This was very tough country and riding conditions, and Renee enjoyed it more than anyone since she was not driving. The two RV Gypsies only recommend this trip to experienced ATV riders. Renee said that several times Karen and Ilse were on three wheels only, and that sure was not intentional.
