The last 12 days have been fun , now its time to make some money . I put 1600 miles on a brand new Camry , thanks Avis , boy did I break it in .I left Anchorage Tuesday morning , headed up to Fairbanks , Stayed 2 days with , Leroy and Margaret from Casa Zama . Had a blast with them , Leroy has been in town , 45 years now . He pulled out some moose burgers , Wednesday night , damm good eatin . Did a short tour on the river , Leroy was checking out his boat . Thursday morning I did the , Mt. McKinley bus tour , 8 hours up and back . As normal the mountain was cloudy , I saw it better on the drive down , about 7am. That night I hit the , 49th state brewery and restaurant , good buffalo meatloaf , they only brew 1 beer now , so I had the Alaskan Ale IPA .
