Saturday, July 15
We woke up to rain and the thought of getting back on the bus for 10 hours wasn’t appealing. Our plan had been to ride part-way back out the Denali road and stop at one of the locations that had some maintained trails. The rain, and the thought of long hours on the bus, was enough to convince us that we were ready to pull up stakes and head for Fairbanks.
We were all dirty, and gritty, and dusty from our in-Denali experience, and when we arrived at Fairbanks our first job was to do laundry – 7 loads! The Silvermine and the truck had a good scrub and then I washed down the inside of the trailer – especially the floor. I put Charlie in the sink for a bath, and then I opted for a shower in the Silvermine. Tonight, Tom is the last to get cleaned up and he is down at the shower house. Tomorrow we are tooling around Fairbanks, and on Monday we have a tour trip inside the Arctic circle planned.
The only picture I have to share today is of this moose!
We don’t go camping any more . . . we go ‘streamin’ ! The “SIlvermine and His” is our 2016 23' Airstream, and ‘streamin’ is the name we use to describe our adventures. Stream along as we document everything from weekend trips to longer summer excursions and full-blown vacations. You know what they say: if you’re not in an Airstream – you’re just camping!
