Bill & Deanie's Trip To Alaska 2012

  June 20th June 21st

We spent all of June 20 dealing with the trailer issue.  Yes it turns out that we bent an axle.  The place (Gabe’s Truck & Car repair) did work us into their schedule and fixed it in one day.  It was pretty hectic throughout the  day; first going to have to find a place to stay (trailer wouldn’t be done) and then the trailer was done.  So all in all kind of hectic day.  Now we still have to get a tire to replace our pretty much new tire that is now shot.  And the thing that really got us is that our so called extended warranty company (Choice) denied the claim.  So we are out for the entire bill ($1000 with new tire).

We did manage to go to the Creamers Field Wildlife Refuge.  This is a 2000 acre refuge managed by the Alaska Department of Fish & Game.  Right off the bat we notice a large flock of Sand Hill Cranes.  We did a short walk around as the RV repair place called about the warranty claim being denied on our trailer!

Another place we stopped by was Pioneer Park.  This is just down the street from the RV Park we are staying in.  It is a great place for people with kids.  Lots of old historical buildings that have been moved to this one site.  Small businesses are now setting up shop in them.  Interesting way to preserve things.

(If you don't see the "blue line" grab the map and pull it to the left or right and the line will appear - Also the little minus on the left side zooms you out and the plus zooms you in)

 

Couldn't resist putting this picture of a bird along the path at Creamer's Field.
   
Ventage railroad car used by President Harding at the Pioneer Park in Fairbanks.  What a wonderful little park; a great place for kids.
   
The railroad car was built in 1905.
   
One of the many buildings that have been moved to Pioneer Park.  These are all original buildings in the Fairbanks area.

Now here is an idea that I really like.  Note the sign on the bench!
