Steve Gruber's Web Page


I was a long time Alaska resident (25 years) who retired from the Alaska Marine Highway System (Alaska DOT&PF) in August 2000.  My dream for many years was to travel by RV through the all of the states in the “lower 48” and all of the provinces in Canada.  I started my travels in September 2000.  In October 2001, I decided that I needed a home base as I needed a respite from the constant traveling.  I purchased a vintage mobile home in Avon Park, Florida and stayed there that winter and returned to Alaska in 2002.   I completed my traveling goal (except for Newfoundland) in September 2002.

In 2004 I drove to Alaska again for what I believe was my last driving trip on the Alaska Highway.  I sold my big Ford F-250 pick-up truck and the Western Wilderness truck camper in 2005 and purchased a 2005 Ford Ranger pick-up.  Since then I have traveled in the "lower 48" on short trips and will continue to do that for the foreseeable future.

Part of the purpose of this web site is to showcase Alaska and my travels after my retirement.  It is also to display a basic genealogical record of my family history and my hobby of glass insulator collecting.
