The week of April 11th is Arcticman week and everyone who rides is pretty much down at Summit watching the races and enjoying the third largest city in Alaska for those 7 days. Me, I prefer some quite time and headed on down to the cabin to finish the last of the repairs to the foundation and yes it’s done. So now I can get back to insulating and maybe working on the inside walls.
As I have a hard time making a trip down there without hauling some materials in, I hauled in 10 sheets of OSB and some 40 odd 2x4s for the skirting, and seeing as it was 35 above and sunny, I went for a ride on Friday after getting all the hauling done. It was blue bird skies and just beautiful, no one else was around and I had an enjoyable and quite weekend. Of course Trish always gets “concerned” when I go down to the cabin alone, but man its sure nice to have that alone time in the woods.
Quick ride around the front yard of the cabin
I did see a few mountain goats near Denali Village but wasn’t able to stop and get any pictures. They were hanging near the road and DOT had a rig out to keep folks from blocking the road. I did get some decent videos of the ride in from the truck to the cabin and back again and also of my ride to the top of Chulitna Buttes as well as some still shots.
