Alaska Day 5

A very quiet birthday. All we did today was drive from Cooper Landing up to Talkeetna, which took around 3 hours. We stopped in Anchorage on the way to grab some lunch and get an FM transmitter for the iPod. The weather changed around midnight last night and it’s been steadily raining, which means that the beautiful view of Denali that should be visible through our room’s picture windows is just clouds. It’s still pretty around here. We went into town for dinner to the Talkeetna Roadhouse, but they don’t do dinner, just soup. We had potato leek soup with home-made wheat bread, and it was damned tasty. Then we walked over to the grocery store to get cokes and paid $6.99 for a twelve pack. And $4.99 for a bag of Cheetos. I could just die.

We’ve got a jacuzzi tub in the bathroom and a basket full of bath goo and it’s just calling my name. I may try to assuage the sinus gods with a hot bath. When we get back home I’m afraid I’m going to have to go in and have some highly unpleasant thing done to myself, since a month with a sinus infection is just no bloody fun.

Tomorrow’s supposed to be rainy also, so we might drive up to Fairbanks to take pictures of the pipeline.
