You're viewing the original Hometown Invasion Tour website as it appeared when launched in 2006. Back then, a site built with tables and flash was commonplace. A few changes were made, but it appears as it did eleven years ago. A modern and responsive version is in the works.

Finally Made it to Seward
Wednesday, Aug 29, 2007 from Seward, Alaska

Seward is a little town of a couple thousand people, about 2.5 hours south of Anchorage. It’s a little town I have wanted to come to for a number of years, thanks to the influence of my friend Ben. My dream has come true. Here I am in Seward, AK. For a few summers Ben worked here in Seward and would constantly tell me about it and tell me I need to get there. I even applied for a job here once at the military resort in town. That didn’t work out because of schedules and college and all of that jazz. But I have finally made it.
The drive into Seward from Anchorage last night was like something out of a movie. We came around the bend and out from behind the mountains came the full moon. It looked as though it was from a Photoshop-ed image, so big and bright, it seemed like you could see every tiny crater. I thought I had died and went to heaven. I truly entered another world here in Alaska.
It was a long day yesterday, the longest single day of travel on the trip. After a good night of rest hopefully I will be ready to go. Once again on the trip, for what should be the last time, I’m staying with a host family who has heard of my story through U.25 magazine. When Gwendolyn contacted me a few weeks ago and said she lived in Seward, I knew I had to go. Gwendolyn and her parents seem to have some great stuff planned while I’m in town. Alaska will be a great finale.

I'm really happy for you and yes you are going to have a wonderful finale in Alaska. I'm glad you saved it for last. It is definitely a place that someone has to visit to really understand it's beauty. Funny thing is that I know someone back home in North Carolina that was raised in Seward. Small world huh? Have fun. Peace.
