We arrived in Fairbanks, and spent a few days catching up on sleep, laundry, cleaning, etc. When we finally took the Smart off its bed, I drove it away from the truck to park it…all fine! But when we wanted to go sightseeing it wouldn’t start and we have an 3 solid bars on the dash. No Smart dealers in Fairbanks – so we are heading to Seattle on the 10th of August. So, we easily pushed it to line it up to reload it on the bed of the truck. That went lots smoother than either of us thought it would. Always an adventure and we have to stay flexible.
So we drove the Volvo to downtown Fairbanks. Walked around, went in the Visitor Center, got lots of information about things to do, trails to hike when Vans & Sergei arrive. Fairbanks even paints around their manholes.
