I finished re-packing for my upcoming mountaineering class in Denali National Park and checked out of my hotel in Anchorage.  I noticed a classic car show in a park near my hotel and stopped there for a while.  There were quite a few familiar cars such as a Triumph TR6 that I believe was from the model year after the one I used to own, a 1971 Jaguar XK-E like one I tried to buy and a strange looking Jeep pickup similar to one my father used to own.

After a couple hours of nostalgia I headed for Talkeetna.  My drive took me through Wasilla, home of Sarah Palin.  She claimed she could see Russia from her house; I think she's delusional.  I understand it is possible to see Russia from some parts of western Alaska but her home isn't in western Alaska.  I doubt she can even see western Alaska from her house.

I checked into my hotel and rested up for my class tomorrow.
