As we began packing up our luggage for our last day in Alaska I am thinking of things that I forgot to tell you about like paying $5,20 per gallon for fill-up in Glenallen, Alaska. Also, I forgot to tell you that everyday one of us, or both, have ordered salmon chowder, clam chowder, or seafood chowder. When we didn’t order chowder I was having an Alaskan caught fish of some kind. So, today for lunch I decided it was time for pizza and a beer. We found the perfect place, a very popular and famous, Moose Tooth Pizza and Pub. It was pretty good. Not as good as Joe Baccardi’s, but, pretty good.
Another random thought crossed my mind,. I was thinking about a 1946 pick-up truck. Most of them have gone to the grave-yard long before. The few that remain on the road have had many replacement parts over the years. So here I am traveling around Alaska with no body part replacements, so far. This morning I had to put on my leg brace and special support sox so that I could walk the coastal hiking trails. A lot of people born in 1946 would not be able to make the two mile walk. But, with my spry young wife at my side we made it.
Our Alaskan journey is coming to an end. We arrived early at the airport so I can watch Adam Wainwright and Yadier Molina break the Major League record for most games played together by a pitcher and catcher, Hope the Cardinals win this game being played in St. Louis. Good by Alaska, hello Seattle.
