  • Fairbanks, Alaska - The MUD Report

    We spent two weeks in FAIRBANKS, Alaska. We checked out the local attractions, visited Alaska Wildfire Center, hiked a few old favorites, and caught up with a lot of friends. We have updated the travel blog with all the details:

    Since then we spent a week in Denali. That blog will be out later today or tomorrow. We are now in Palmer. Anchorage & Soldotna are next!

    You can't go to Alaska without catching a BIG salmon. Shawn having fun at Pioneer Park in Fairbanks.

    Another great report. Iíd love to do an Alaska trip one of these days, but we either need to sell this place or have someone spend the summer that would at least keep things at bay.

    Got a good chuckle on your cottonwood pod problem. What make those worse......we have them mixed with 150 year old Oregon White Oaks. This time of year the Aphids get after things making them drop little droplets of sap. Mixed with the cottonwood seed cotton, everything is a fuzzy mess thatís stuck. We donít leave the vehicles outside for long

      Thank you, Rolland & Judie! Yes, Alaska is expensive but we don't have those worries about a house... for now. It is an incredible place and some of the scenery you can't capture in pictures or the wildlife in videos. But we'll try our best. Enjoy your summer & happy travels to you!

        Shawn, what I meant is with 2/3 of an acre, a few fruit trees, berries, veggies, ornamentals, etc., would need to sell it or have someone to take care of things. No way to leave it Spring to Fall on its own.
