Last night did not end until about 0100 in the morning. After a long ride from Deadhorse to Fairbanks we desperately needed showers and then of course we we wired and it was difficult to get to sleep before about 0100.
I was up at the crack of dawn as per my usual routine and Cheryl slept in to about 0830. I did laundry and the BLOG before breakfast.
We met Ray and walked down to the Sourdough for breakfast but first all of us unanimously decided we needed to do this before we even ate.
Ray’s bike. We will be saying our good bye’s to Ray tomorrow as he heads towards BC, Canada and we head towards Denali Highway.
After the power wash. Costs $3 for 3 minutes. We all used $9 each.
Quick stop at Lowes about 5 KM away from the dorms for more cleaning stuff and batteries for my SPOT
Back at the dorm we all did a little detailing on the bikes to make them look somewhat cleaner. Ray and Cheryl did a better job than Leslie. Leslie gets bored doing this stuff.
Cheryl’s bike cleaner and chain sort of cleaned and lube. Ran out of chain cleaner will have to pick up some soon. We do not use gas or WD40.
This is what are rooms looks like when we are charging things. I usually have way more items plugged in than this.
After the in the parking lot detail of the bikes, we took naps. We sleep so hard that we both thought it was tomorrow. Woke up and what do we do? Need to eat again. Back out with Ray to the Sourdough again for a tasty dinner and dorm room time to relax and get ready to our departure of Fairbanks once and for all to head to the Denali Highway, another off road event to get to Denali the park. Back tracking a little but we have time and our clean bikes will become a mess again because more rain is predicted for tomorrow. Today, nothing but sunshine because we were not riding the bikes.
walking to dinner
Have to walk up these stairs to get to our dorm. Good thing after the meal we just ate. Now, sort of planning the next part trip and playing it day to by day.
