... it was a good time for a little preventive maintenance. We bought a drill from Home Depot and spoke to the manager who agreed to let us pull our camper around to the delivery door and plug in our extension cord to their electrical outlet for about an hour to get the project done.

Beautiful and amazing sight to see. Alaska definitely makes you appreciate, no, makes you in awe of ...
