After a week at Fairbanks, it time to go. We headed south on the "Parks Highway" with a short stop of acouple hours in Nenana we continued on to our destination, Anderson. But take a look at the photos in and around Nenana, it's a warm little town with lots of personality to it. President Harding came here in 1923 to drive the silver railroad spike to connect and finish the Alaskan Railroad. The spike is on display at the railroad giftshop and museum.
Anderson is really just a wide spot in the forest but with 800 residents it's friendly, quaint and quiet. Our purpose here was to help a friend, Warren Tainter. He bought some land near Anderson but has never seen it. Our quest, to find the plot and take a picture of it for him. In the end we got close to it by accident and later we found out from the realtor close by lower 48 standards is not "close" by Alaskan standards, we were some 7 miles away from the plot of land. Oh well, without good directions from Warren it was difficult at best. Having gotten here on a weekend, a call to the realtor went unanswered. We had to wait for Monday, producing the above information, GPS coord and more explicit directions. The road in was iffy at best, we decided not to go there in the final analysis.
