Working on the RV and a Drive Up Eagle River Road

Ken spent a good part of the day working on the RV.  The ladder in the back of the RV was coming loose and he had to get that attached again so that it wouldn’t fall off.  We also had to fill the fresh water tank again as we were running low.  We had a late lunch and drove into town to drop off some mail at the post office and also drove out to see the Eagle River Campground (Chugach State Recreation Site).  On our way back to Ian’s we decided to drive to the end of the road to the Eagle River Nature Center.  There was a moose in the pond as we drove that way, so we watched him for a few minutes.


If you’ve ever heard of Moose Drool beer, this is how it got it’s name.


This is our nephew Ian with Ken.


Jennifer, Summer, and Corey are all running in a race in Anchorage tonight.  It’s called the Skinny Raven Twilight 12K and you can read more about it here:  Skinny Raven Twilight 12K.  We hope they all do well!

Tomorrow we plan to drive to the Russian River USFS Campground and spend a night.  That campground is already full for the expected week of the salmon run, so we’ll be staying at another campground during that time.  However, we will have family staying at this campground and wanted to check it out in advance.  On Sunday we will continue on to Kenai to visit our niece and her family.

Update:  There were over 6000 runners in the race tonight.  Jennifer placed 19th in her class, Summer was 5th in hers, and Corey was 4th in hers.  Congratulations!  Good job.
