Aug 3, 2016 - Nenana, AK

August 3, 2016 Love the free bus service in Fairbanks! Last night we got off the bus mid-town and there were no people on the street at 6:30. Short walk from the transit station to the Spring Suites Hotel. Inside the Bistro it was packed and fortunately we had a reservation. It was obviously the place to be in town. We had a lovely dinner with very attentive service. Bob had prime rib and I had the potato crusted Copper River salmon both served with yummy shaved Brussel sprouts. Took a taxi back to camp. Nice evening out! Did not even stir...

Jun 6, 2015 - Nenana AK - Nenana RV Park and Campground

Spent the day running errands, doing laundry and grocery shopping, etc. in Fairbanks. That was the most expensive laundromat we’ve ever done laundry in. Too bad the machines were old and didn’t do that great a job. Oh, well, that’s the way it is some days. All laundromats can’t be as good as the one in Fort Pierre SD, I guess. Headed south for Mount McKinley and stopped in Nenana for the night. They have an old train depot where President Warren G. Harding, his wife and his mistress spent the night (the mistress had her own room.) On July...

May 23, 2012 - Quartz Lake CG to Nenana RV Park, Nenana, AK

Wednesday, May 23, 2012 Quartz Lake State Campground to Nenana RV Park, Nenana, AK 150.4miles TRAVEL QUOTE OF THE DAY: “Once the travel bug bites there is no known antidote, and I know that I shall be happily infected until the end of my life.” Michael Palin. Oh, you know it, Michael! I much prefer to be bitten by the travel bug than these darned Alaskan mosquitoes…… Slept OK, except for the light….it was light when I went to bed. Woke up at 4am and it was still light; did it even GET dark last night?! Noise machine died at 5am so I slept...

Jun 20, 2011 - Nenana, Alaska

June 19, 2011 We’ve been wandering down the George Parks Highway at a very slow pace. Our reservation for Denali does not start until Tuesday. We wanted 10 days in a row, so Tuesday was the best they could do for us. The result was a couple extra easy days. All right by me. The Parks Highway is the 300 plus mile route between Fairbanks and Anchorage. It’s a very good paved highway. Generally, it’s two lane, but there are passing lanes on the long hills. The route goes up over mountains and descends to the rivers. Our views, consequently,...

Jul 7, 2009 - North Pole to Nenana

Tuesday, July 7, 2009. Nenana RV Park and Campground, Nenana, Alaska North Pole to Nenana The morning was spent doing odds and ends around the RV and running errands. Jonathan and I ran into Fairbanks one last time to pick up a few things at Walmart, stop at a bank, get gas and pick up Glenn Beck's book I've been wanting to read. The couple at the TEA Party told me I could get a copy at the Interior Alaska Conservative Coalition and where it was so I stopped there. It was an interesting conversation. Tom did a couple last minute loads of...

Aug 9, 2005 - Day 16, Tuesday

August 9, Tuesday-It does get warm in Alaska-in the truck it said it was 79 degrees. We "finished off" Fairbanks today-went out to the museum at the UAF. They are under construction, so the exhibits are limited. The new building is going to look like a giant geometric igloo! Gene wanted to see this old gold dredge, so we drove northeast out of town on the Steese Highway, also got to be right next to the pipeline. Found out that Holland America owns Gold Dredge #8. He enjoyed his tour and panned $8.90 worth of gold! Then we drove over to...
