Delta Junction, Alaska

Monday, June 11, 2007

rain 0 °F

We pack up again, get some diesel, buy an “I Love Potholes. Chicken, Alaska” bumper sticker (Joe’s choice) & some “Made in Alaska” silver earrings (my choice), and take off for Delta Junction. As we’re leaving town, we stop by the Chicken, Alaska Post Office and take a picture. Mail is flown in on Tuesday and Fridays. The post office is small, but not as small as the Ochopee post office on the Tamiami Trail, Florida.

Soon after leaving Chicken we get to paved road--we all smile, especially Jere.

The scenery is interesting, but not as spectacular as some places. We see no wildlife, and again we see a lot of forest fire damaged forests.

There is very little traffic on the Taylor Highway; however, when we get to the Alaska Highway, lots of RVers again.

We make occasional stops when there is something interesting to see. Our first stop at Delta Junction is at the Delta Sausage Store to buy some reindeer breakfast links, frozen buffalo burgers, and buffalo summer sausage. We have tomorrow’s meals all planned :-)

We get to Green Acres RV Park in Delta Junction and before setting up we wash the truck and 5ver. They are filthy with mud from the Taylor Highway. The mud was caked so high yesterday that we were knocking the big chunks off the truck with our feet, but there is still a lot of mud remaining today. The washing gets rid of most of the mud, but the rig is still nowhere near clean. By the time we finish washing, it begins to rain so maybe the rain will help.

I'm getting tired of cooking, so we go to the Delta Junction Diner for dinner, and then back to the RV to relax.
