my trip to Fairbanks, ALASKA

6 posts in this topic

Well well we meet again! So rather than taking the 30 minute flight, I decided to take out the rambler and drive my way up the last frontier to the golden heart city... FAIRBANKS. Yep, with enough money to live on enough Hostess apple and lemon pies along with a shelter to stay in (my brothers summer dorm at the university), the trip was well worth the 6 hour drive. Did I learn anything new? Why yes I did! As my brother best put it, "Fairbanks is the 1980's version of Anchorage". The ciggerette smoking, confederate flag waving, and... long male hair truley lived up to my expectations.

A statue honoring the Italian explorer who couldn't find any gold and thus landed here to rest in frustration.

My brother in the 3E car. No its not a cheesy tribute to Dale Earnhardt, rather it was ment to be No.33 until a crew member realized my brother was painting the first 3 the wrong direction on the roof of the car

Wassup stranger! Long time no see! Great pics by the way! So what do you think of Fairbanks? It looks quite hazy in the pics its not because of pollution right?

It looks surprisingly urban in those first photos, then it goes a bit downhill. :(

Nice WalMart though. :unsure:
