From Burwash Landing to Fairbanks Alaska proved to be a long day. Our usual pace was quite leisurely. We enjoyed the sights and got there when we got there. This day was different. I wanted to find some fiberglass filler to complete the patching on the wheelwell in the camper. We arrived in Fairbanks around nine o'clock, set up camp, ate supper and took a stroll around the campground. We like to see how the better half travels. Then we decided to play some 500 till dark.
It turned out there was no dark. "I think I'm gonna call it a night. What time is it?" asked Troutbirder. "It's 2 a.m." was the incredulous reply. The Land of the Midnight Sun for sure. We spent several days in Fairbanks. Highlights included Alaskaland, an arboreteum at the University, a buffet featuring reindeer stew and freshly caught halibut, a slide show about the aurora borealis, and the Malamute Saloon, which had a cabaret show.
