SEP 30, 20 .. PATTI AND I ARE NOW SAFELY BACK HOME IN ANCHORAGE

 On Wednesday, September 9th, Patti and I drove North from Anchorage, Alaska, to Fairbanks, Alaska. The drive of 360-miles took us just under 8 hours.

On September 10th, I posted photos of our drive and the lovely hotel where we stayed. The below link will take you to that post.

On September 10th, we then drove 160-miles from Fairbanks to our alternate home in Manley Hot Springs. 

And then we hit-the-wall as to future posts here on blogspot during our visit to Manley because we could not achieve an internet connection in Manley. Prior to going up to Manley, I purchased an expensive (for me) cell phone plan that I believed and was told that would allow me to use my Samsung Galaxy A10 Smartphone as a hot-spot for my laptop with 15 Gigabytes of data usage available. Alas! Alak! After five long telephone conversations with my cell phone provider, I was totally unable to connect to the internet. I am not an I.T. (Information Technology) professional but I finally was able to ascertain (my cell phone company did NOT tell me this) after talking to a local I.T. professional that a 2G cell tower will NOT service a 5G smartphone.

This past Monday the 28th of September we left Manley and drove back to Fairbanks. Yesterday September 29th we drove back to Anchorage.

So we are now 'home' in Anchorage with all of the high tech amenites (a desirable or useful feature or facility of a building or place) we have learned to love and to treasure.

When we returned after being away for three weeks (20 days) Patti was shocked to see that her beloved flowers had survived three weeks without her tender daily love and caring attention.

Two photos looking out at our Autumn colored backyard taken from our living room.


Below are several photos of her flowers as they appear after our three week get-away.

Notice her yellow Begonia in the next two photos. Patti feels that the begonia looks fuller that it was when we left September 9th.


Below you see the other side of our back porch with its flowers.


As I just wrote above, Patti could not believe how nice her flowers looked after not having received any attention from her for the past three weeks.

Well you all know the basics. We are back home in Anchorage. We could not publish any posts online while we were in Manley. Now I plan to write and publish a number of posts showing some aspects of our life out in the Alaska Bush.

SEP 14, 20 .. PATTI AND I ARE '' ON THE ROAD AGAIN "

 Pattti and I are up at our cabin in Manley Hot Springs, West of Fairbanks, Alaska.

This brief post not-withstanding, I am unable to get-online (I should say easily because I AM ONLINE now as I type these few words).

Andrej, my webmaster on my other site is publishing text messages I am able to send him on my Samsung Galaxy A10 Smartphone.

SEP 10, 20 .. ANCHORAGE, ALAKSA NORTH TO FAIRBANKS, ALASKA

 Patti and I are planning to visit our cabin in Manley Hot Springs, Alaska, for a week or maybe even two weeks.

Our trip began under sunny skies as we left Anchorage at 3:45pm yesterday afternoon the 9th of September and headed North to Fairbanks.




Then the sunny skies began to get just a tad dark.



Then just look at what we ran into. 

RAIN.


Then, along with the rain, we encountered a 35-minute road construction delay.




You have to realize that we are in Alaska. It is September. Autumn is ending. Winter is eagerly creeping into the far North.

Do you see some snow on the distant mountain tops?




All is well that ends well

We arrived safe and sound (in spite of some serious rain and fog on the road) at our incredible and wonderful room here at the 7 Gables Inn in Fairbanks. 

Just look at our luxurious room.




And? In a few hours, we will head out from Fairbanks to Manley Hot Springs.

Smiling at being-on-the-road again.

Cap and Patti

Post Script : As I sign off here it is approaching 3am in the morning of Thursday the 10th of September. Patti finally conked-out and went to bed. So? I won't have the benefit of Patti's proof-reading.
