FREE Entertainment at Tok RV Park - Dave Stancliff - local singer...

Another quick note, we are all snug in our little home, listening as the rain pours on the roof. When we get out of all the rain, Ron is going to have to put a yard sprinkler on the roof or I won't be able to sleep!

We had a non-eventful trip to Tok, Ron was worried about coming back up the hill from Valdez (2500 feet in 7 miles) - but our little buggy took it in stride! So we had a lot of bad roads, lots of rain & clouds, but tonight is warmer - we are only wearing 1 layer of nite clothes to bed (not even socks) tonite! That is a big improvement from the last couple of weeks!

We came back to the Tok RV Park, mostly to hear Dave Stancliff's show again. If you haven't heard him - he's great - music (he writes most of it), humor, light kidding for the RV group (all of us), & lots of good laughs - and it's free!

Negative here, 45 mins FREE WiFi - not enough to do much of anything! Can purchase more, but it is expensive - so I'll finish this up & get off.

We are heading towards Hyder, but don't expect to get that far tomorrow. Ron can feel his easy chair calling him at home --- I feel like I've just been dreaming! It's too much, too fast . . . but I have lots of photos & journaling to keep me busy for awhile. I miss my family, but they do just fine w/o me - looking forward to meeting up w/some new friends soon . . . goodnite!
