    We had trouble with our reservation even after make two confirmation calls a week before our arrival. Apparently they are a little disorganized in the front office. We were supposed to have a double room but on arrival only a room with a single double bed was available. This was inside the main building down a hall from the restaurant. The room was not much bigger than the bed with not closet space and a small bath. We were supposed to stay for three nights, but decided to leave after two. It was just too cramped. Apparently the rooms in the outer building with two beds are considerable larger. We thought the single bed rooms were way overpriced. The restaurant is only open for breakfast.

    ... noisy! After hearing about the way the dogs are trained, Ethan goes off with some of the other kids for a close encounter with the puppies whilst the rest of us hear about the race and do a Q and A session with Jeff King. I hadn't realised but the race is non - stop (apart from checkpoints where the dogs are rested for about 6 hours and checked over). The mushers get no outside help and support whatsoever (not even a phone is allowed) and ...

    ... for internet and walked around town. Talkeetna is a lot like Cozumel when the cruise ships are in town, lot and lots of people. We shared a small meatball pizza for lunch so we would be hungry for the steak feast tonight. Early bedtime for our 3:40 am wake up ...

    I slept great last night but was concerned that the sound of raindrops would mess up our plans for the day. We met D.P. at Latitude 62 Restaurant and Lodge for breakfast to get us fueled up for a busy day. You should see the pelts and heads on the walls of that place, along with the publicity shots of all sorts of musicians who have performed there, including D.P.! We checked with the airport; bush plane flights were a no-go due ...

    ... on that river for the 10 years I was here, so deicide to save the $70 ticket. I sit in the Latitude 62 having a beer and watching the World Cup soccer match between paragraphs and talking to the locals walking in that I recognize.

    When the group gets back we look over the schedule and the weather forecast and there is a plan hatched to leave Talkeetna for Seward to visit Kenai Fjords National park by Tour boat. Everyone but me is getting ...

    ... Not much employment in the town hence the reliance on subsistence life style. We visited the visitor centre and watched a few documentaries about early life in Kotzebue and education of high school Eskimos. High school students were shipped of to various schools around Alaska and boarded away from home at the governments expense for the years at high school. Not quite as bad as taking the children away from their parents for good as we did. Alaska now has a policy of ...
