This is kinda a dumpy looking mo'tel in the not the greatest part of town, but at $95USD a night, it was a pretty good bargain, especially when I couldn't find anything for less than $150 a night on all the usual travel sites. The inside is nice, the wifi is very strong and there is a Sushi Restaurant attached to it. The Econo Inn is minutes from DT, and does everything you need it to do, without looking nice, so if you can get over that part, you'll do well!

We leave The Beav at The Crack of Bill, 0900 sharp, it was a beautiful blue sky day. We had met a guy at the bar in Buckshot Betty's who was part of the construction crew on the road repair sites we had driven through yesterday.

We split a large "Cadillac" Pizza and were ready to finish the trip back to the Hunt's home (Kevin rents a room with the Hunt's).

We are now parked in a Cablea’s parking lot because everything is full. (Christy refused to use Wal-Mart). Everywhere we stopped they were full. There is still a fire ban in Anchorage and everything north of here, so no FIREWORKS ...
... between James and a very grouchy cab driver, who forgot all his training about good will ambassador: James - are you a native of Alaska? Driver - do I look like an Eskimo?! James - how long have you been in Alaska? Driver - too long. 25 years. It's a hell hole. Highest suicide rate of any state. James (not to be deterred) - where are you from? (the guy has an accent) Wait for it......... Driver - Russia. Have you ever been to ...

We got off the rough and rattly Denali Highway and rolled along the Ric*******, south towards Chitina. (Pronounced Chit-nya) Not much in Chitina itself but the Copper River runs there =favorite with fishermen- and a nice state campground by the river that is free. (Just an update on campsite costs- to date we have spent a total of $90.00 in 49 days on campsite fees. That's an ...
