Jan and mikes retirement adventure to Canada travel blog

Merry xmas

So special

You all better be good or else

Today we left our nice lakeside overnight stop and headed off somewhere. Not sure if it was Fairbanks or Denali. We srtopped at North Pole today. What a lovely stop. Had a good look around and saw Santa and let him know

A few secrets about everyone we know.we left North Pole not knowing where we were headed.

The sign came up quickly and a decision had to be made.

Fairbanks and civilisation and wi fi or Denali and who knows what!

We chose Denali and much angst for me as I had been out of communication for 2 days already. We have stopped at a little( very little) town and saw an ATMSign. We needed US $ so stopped walked into this small local bar to use the machine and all eyes were on us. STRANGERS in our town. Got the money and saw everyone on laptops. What a chance. Sent Mike to the car in the pouring rain to get iPad and here we are.

Having a glass of wine in this local joint. Very Alaskan. They are a bit hillbilly like. Very friendly. Full of smokers and locals. I am desperate!

Hopefully my posts will make a bit more sense as we head further south.

I don't think anyone can understand the remoteness of this 49th state .
