Put on new tires, I had shipped to my friend Scott here in Wasilla, also changed the oil.
Now ready for the real gravel.
I have known Scott for many years, when he was a pilot with Northwest Airlines.
Scott graduated from college, was an Air Force pilot then a airline pilot. He had a heart problem and was forced to retire, he chose Alaska, he is now a true Alaska mountain man, he hunts, fishes
and maintains his 4 acres of land , he is now putting up 10 cords of firewood for the winter. He is one of those fortunate people whom has found his perfect little niche in life.
I left Wasilla at 2 pm, stopped off for a few minutes in Talketna. Alaskas Cave Creek, rode by Denali, Ron and I had driven through the park several years ago, arrived Fairbanks at 9pm, all in total sun light. Sunset tonight 12.26 am, sunrise will be at 3.26 am. 75 degrees all day.
Tomorrow the Dalton.
I carried the tires from Scott’s only about 15 miles, but have carried tires from Arizona just like this.
