... an email from Flight Centre confirming that my flight had been changed so I wouldn't be flying tomorrow, Eddie passed this on to Sheila whilst he was on the phone with her. I was so pleased as it meant I could hire a car tomorrow & go to Talkeetna.

Also got to meet the owner who runs this place in the summer and then goes back to Valdez to run a greenhouse in the winter months. Another nice Alaskan lady!
