VERY short update
A few more random ramblings:
Drivers here are either in a big hurry - or no hurry at all. We got behind a guy yesterday pulling a tiny trailer whose top speed was about 30mph. At one point, we were going 20 and not able to pass on the windy road. OR, people are in such a hurry that they pass unsafely. We've seen a lot of big rigs do that - obviously not our boys driving, huh, Jimbo and Gary!!
Previously, when I thought of Alaska, I thought up - as in elevation. Not true! Most of the time, we've been below 1000', often around 200'. I think the highest we've been was the Top of the World Hwy at about 4000'. And, we certainly thought we would see more wildlife. Maybe coming up on our trip down to the Kenai. We're heading to Soldotna tomorrow and will be down there for the next week or more. Don't know what wifi we'll have, but I do have texting ability - hint, hint......
Well, we're 'camped' in a Home Depot parking lot tonight and I want to thank them for the use of their wifi, but not too speedy, so couldn't upload photos from my big mega-pixel camera.
To be continued..........
