Fairbanks was interesting for a lot of reasons,one of which is that the first night there we went to dinner and spotted a car with an unusual flyer on the door. I went to their website and this group every other year does a rally through many countries in vintage cars. We have registered and may consider doing one of their rallys in 2014.




We played at the Ice Museum - brrr!, enjoyed a touristy visit to the Alaskaland Pioneer Park that included attending a nighttime vaudeville performance that ended after midnight with the sun still shinning in this city where the sun never sets.











Because it gets so cold in Fairbanks, notice the temperature change in the photo, the car engines have heaters and there are power points at the parking meters to plug in your car when stopped!








The UA Museum is well worth a visit - that is a big bear, as is a visit to Mary Shields home. Mary was the first woman to finish the 1,049 mile Iditarod Sled Dog Race.












The Aurora Ice Museum was a cool location (yuk yuk), we met a fellow from Israel and for him, Jackie did a ceremonial stomping on the glass. We concluded with a visit to the Alyeska Pipeline.
