My Crib

I have a new apartment: 2 bedrooms, heated garage (woohoo!) and I'm on the second story. Another apartment is on the first floor. It's decidedly more enviable than the luxurious Jillian Square apartments, yet the neighborhood leaves something to be desired. A snow covering will do wonders for the neighborhood! I can't wait.

Let's take a tour, shall we? (Excuse the mess...)

It's Fall. In August?

Seems that I made it to Fairbanks just in time for fall: crisp air laden with the scent of wood burning stoves, warm days but an extra blanket required at night, and leaves turning scarlet and gold. Surely one of my favorite times of year. But in August?

Bumps, Cats, and Troopers

3177 miles. Two international border crossings. Two cats that meowed the first two hours (and then some) every day of 7 days of travel. California, Oregon, Seattle, British Columbia, the Yukon and finally,  Fairbanks. We survived with out a flat tire, cracked windshield or having to call UHaul (which was fortunate since I lost the paperwork with the emergency number in case the trailer broke down), and no one was arrested.
