Happy Thanksgiving!

We made it to Fairbanks (barely) and have been livin' it up since then. Filling our days with as much as possible of this new place. I sat down to my computer and this free internet connection with every intention of loading some pics, but realized I left my camera cord at home. Here's a rundown of our trip so far...

Wednesday...
Flight was delayed due to the thickest/eeriest freezing fog that I've ever seen...
We had to run to get the stewardess to ask them to hold the Fairbanks flight so that we could make it and even then we had to run...
We got to be the first to deplane...
It's the first time I've ever had to run to make a flight...
