In the morning, at the Caribou Inn, as I actually looked around the room, there was a sign in the bathroom stating to pull hard on the faucets and if you couldn't get hot water, to try the opposite way on the faucet as some of the plumbing was backwards - I couldn't help it, I had to take a picture!

Then I noticed that at least I would be safe in the shower, the little non-slip fish that some people put in the bottom of the tub were even on the side of the tub! I'm a terrible person, I completely acknowledge that. Anyway, LJ's only comment about the 'breakfast' part of our B&B experience was "I'm guessing you want to eat somewhere else?" I said yes and we left the Caribou... never to return... I hope.

... nice dinner at the Snow Goose Restaurant and Brewery. I had a salmon and Karen had reindeer burger and sweet potato fries. Both were very good.
We had a great time catching up with S&G. She moved out here 30 plus years ago. Drove out with her sister and never went home. We ended up staying at their place outside of Anchorage in Chugiak. We stayed up quite late catching up.
Thanks for the ...

We zipped up the tent just in time to listen to the rain patter on the canvas. Poor Dawson was restless all night and we had to be up to catch the water taxi at 8 am, so no one slept well.

... we learned so much. After we finished the tour, we had dinner in one of the buildings. We had reindeer sausage, salmon, caribou stew, seasoned potatoes, and salad. Most of us tried everything. It was a very good meal. Then we were learned about the family life of Native Alaskans by an elder. When she finished, we helped her make Akutaq (Eskimo ice cream). Traditionally it is made with reindeer fat, seal oil, sugar, and fruit. We made it ...
... as a credit against the card, as we explained a cheque in US$’s was no use in Oz.
As we have no gear with us, having left it at our hotel earlier, we decided to get the local $2 bus ($1 seniors) rather than a $30 taxi. Sort out the #2 bus route, which initially runs away from town, just to confuse the unwary, and find a bus stop and wait. The bus is a bit late, but the girl driving is friendly, and very tolerant of a rather smelly and untidy old timer, ...
... from a cabin but the snow that a functioning snow mobile can glide over was too deep for tired, disoriented people to walk thru. Perhaps a reliance on mechanical transport reduces peoples bush skills as Kantner suggests. In any case I’d rather curl up with a team of huskies (recall the expression three dog night – you need three dogs around you to keep you warm) than try and warm myself by burning the plastic bits of my snow mobile. If things get really bad you ...
