Alaska??? One of the greatest year of aviating. Spring and Fall on the patio with warm blankets and a bottle of wine watching natures greatest light shows.

Picture this.... July siting at a restaurant in Fairbanks at the Pump House on the Chena River... its 22:00 my wife and I are enjoying an excellent with, yes a bottle of wine, sun high in the sky, temperature 75 F or 24 C.

People in Fairbanks are some of the friendliest people. What’s amazing is the number of those from the South Pacific who emigrated to the US and settled in Alaska.

Yes, that's a real thing. Probably the biggest reason I have no interest in spending a lot of time up here.
