Still day 13.

Hi, we went to a Gold Mine today. We rode on a little train and got to pan for Gold. You get to keep what ever you get, but it is very little. A few people made out, but then they paid for having it put into jewlery or something, so the Mine still made their money. Later back at the camp ground there was a caravan of old cars, about twenty of them, and I would have missed them if it wasn't for me bring out the trash at that time.

(1.) This is the Gold Mine train that we rode on.

(2.) This is the pan of Gold that I got. [ I wish]

(3.) This is the Gold Nugget that Lee Lee found. [On the counter and everyone was allowed to hold it, but then had to leave it or be shot]

(4.) First car in the line-up; I actually don't know what it is and they were leaving, so I took a video of it too.

Bob , you might check out the state park in Fairbanks. It's just a little west of Pioneer Park and north of that street We moved from the RV Park in north pole to the state park in Fairbanks after we couldn't get the WiFi to work when we were there.

Day 14.

Hi, today was a relatively short drive. We left Fairbanks and went to Denali. We are going to take the 12 hour bus ride through Denali park. Boo-Boo can't stay home alone that long, so for him, we will stay an extra day. Tomorrow Lee Lee will take the tour and Saturday I will take the tour. That way someone will be with Dusty. Today we just checked it out and made our reservations. We are staying at McKinley RV & Campground in Denali. I asked about WIFI and the young girl told me that I would more than likely have to use the laundry room; Well it only has two bars and is working great so far.

(1.) Entrance to Denali National Park. [sign]

(2.) Interesting structure in the Visiter Center.

If you go to Homer, check out the boat trip to Hallibut Cove. If you go to Seward, a boat trip to Kenai Fjords NP is another good trip.

I hope you get to see the mountain—most never do and whether or not the mountain is out is a big deal there.

Loose again?

Hi, today after getting situated in our space, I noticed that my large cabinet door hinge was loose again. This time it was only the top one. I removed it to put it back together and re-adjusted it again. [I don't like these hinges] Also my shower control handle was loose again. The allen screw on the handle was tight, so I removed it and tightened the phillips head screw on the plastic mounting disk. I keep two screw drivers and one allen wrench in the trailer, so I didn't have to dig through the tool boxes in my Lincoln.

Not bad considering your airstream is sustaining a constant mini earthquake while traveling those back roads..

Day 15.

Hi, this morning I dropped Lee Lee off at the tour bus station for her 12 hour tour. [I go tomorrow] So it's been me and Dusty at 2005 Safari Ave. Airstream, Alaska. I was lucky enough to do laundry again today, but it helped pass the time. I'm still dodging the mosquitoes, but there aren't very many here and they are slow. Most of my bite bumps are finally going down, so I don't look like I have a teenager's face. After typing this post, Dusty and I are going on a car ride to see if we can spot a Moose or something.

(1.) Lee Lee's Bus, ready to leave to Kantishna.

(2.) Mile Post sign. Been to North Pole, Fairbanks, and now Denali; maybe Anchorage next?

(3.) Safari and Lincoln camped in little valley.

(4.) Fire weed; They say it is the first plant to show up after the snow. It can be used to make Tea and other things. I wonder if Lili has had Tea made from Fire Weed?

Dead School Bus.

Hi, I know it's not hard to find dead vehicles in the country, but this one was parked on edge of the campground, not far from us, and I thought it was interesting. So of course I had to take a few pictures of it.

Hi, Lili; I will try to answer your questions.

No, I'm at the top of a hill next to the camp ground office/store/restaurant/restroom/showers/laundry.

It's just called Fire Weed, it's not hot.


10 hour trip..? thats like one end of England to another..10 hours gadzooks..is that a typing error..should it be 1

No it's actually a twelve hour trip; Ninety two miles each way.


Those abandoned cars give me the flipping eebyjeebies..Ive seen "The Hills have eyes"

Old vehicles aren't scary unless they were in a really bad accident, like being hit with a big rig or train.


Are there slithering sneaky snakes there


No snakes, just Bears and Moose.

Ammonia works great to neutralize mosquito, and other insect, bites.
