Day 28, 6/26/15, Friday
Weather: The day was overcast with a strong presence of smoke. The temperature was in the low 80s and humid.
Essentially, we did nothing today. We are planning on leaving very early tomorrow morning on our way down to Anchorage. We did do some food shopping and received a Skype from Logan who had wanted to say hello to Grannie and Pop.
There is something that we thought very unusual when we first arrived in Fairbanks. The public parking lots have metal posts about four feet high with two enclosed electric recepticals attached. It wasn’t until we noticed that cars with Alaska license plates had an electric plug extending from the front grill. It gets so cold, that if cars are parked for too long their engines would freeze. Thus drivers were able to plug their cars in to generate engine heating.
We spent the rest of the day relaxing.
