Alaskan Morning!

Oooooh it’s morning and today’s story boys and girls is of a morning that I was glad to see. It all started with me (as always) looking for a place to stay in the middle of nowhere. I had wanted to stay in Valdez for the night and take a boat out on the water the next morning but as luck would have it, the cabins I stayed in the time before was all full but not all was lost yet, there are other places, so into Valdez I went to look. The weather was bad foggy, misty, cold and rainy but still…. it could look up, right? Nope, place after place was full and with the weather, well…. the boat trip this year didn’t look like it would be that good, so away I went back into the wilds of Alaska to find something else to do. Time is going by and towns are not close to each other but I’ve been in the time crunch before and got lucky but this time was being hard but hey…. That’s why I go without plans. I’m nuts! Really, I am! Because no one in there right mind would do this, right? Well… driving around and around, stopping at place after place, following signs to places that said, B&B but sure didn’t look it.. Yeah I asked at one place and it was a place where they had parked there cars but they had put in a bed and moved the car out, so…. bed?? but breakfast? I was not going to stay around to see if that was true (Oh and they had dogs that was jumping on me and my car). So on I went and thought I would have to drive into the night again to find something but in Alaska, in the summer anyway, it’s stays light for a looooooong time so that was good at least. Well after a few more stops and no luck, I was going on to Tok, I thought…. but there was a sign and well I was tired so one more stop, just to see if it would turn out ok and well…. there was a few cabins in the trees and it looked ok so I stopped, got out of the car in front of this spooky looking house and seen a dog, Oh nooooo, I hope not the jumpy kind but it was a nice dog so I reached to pet the old dog when I heard an old man yell, “you don’t have to pet that ole dog” and I jumped. Me, spooked but this old man, me, almost still young and well….. ladies I’m built strong, yes very and still single if well…. never mind, on with the story. 🙂 I looked at this old man and yelled again “What do you want”. Well…. in a small voice I asked if he has a cabin for the night and he turned and walked into the house, thinking that was for me to follow I went into the spooky house where I found…….. a sweet kind grandma of a woman who warmed me fast and put my fears of the old man coming after me with an ax to rest. So a nice cabin and wifi was mine for the night, So with wifi password and a key I drove to my little peaceful cabin in the woods and stated to unload the car of what I would need and into the cabin I went. It was nice and clean, warm and not spooky. So after putting my things in I walked out with my phone to find wifi and enjoy the peace. That’s when I heard the old man yell again from the woods “you on the net?” yes, I say. He yells “how did you get on” I said your wife gave me the password “oh” he yells and on he goes about whatever he was doing. I go back inside for a shower and see the sign warning that this is not a spa, hurry in and hurry out if you want hot water. So I did as I was told and walked back outside to check my email and enjoy the peace. This is when I seen a car pull in, a family that was looking for a place too.  That’s when I heard the old man yell again “what do you want?” the man from the car said “a place for my family tonight”, the old man yelled “who all is that” the man from the car said “my wife, son and I”  the old man yelled “show me the boy”. After all that I walked back inside and locked the door. The next morning when I was leaving I seen that family’s car outside one of the cabins, so I guess things went well for them but who knows………15551910425_481795066f_o
