Byron is feeling much better!

Sunday night was spent back in Fairbanks because of a repair appointment and mail delivery expected on Monday. We chose to get a room for the night in order to take advantage of amenities and avoid the dreaded RV park environment. Pet friendly is an issue, so a website such as bringfido.com is a big help. We stayed off the beaten path at 7 Gables Inn, which is not bad and very interesting. It's geared more toward longer term stays, but welcomed us anyway. He was even arranging to rent out a treehouse on property. 

We did go to the summer solstice festival downtown. You can read about that in Meghan's post.

Today Byron got new upper ball joints on the front end and an oil change at Sunshine Rae's shop in town. They came highly recommended in the Vanagon community, and were a pleasure to work with. They even successfully chased down the elusive Mobil 1 15w/50 oil recommended for this motor...not an easy task to find such spec oil in these northern climes.  

So, we're back on the road with both front wheels pointed the same direction again, fresh oil, and headed to Denali NP for three days in the park. This will be Willow's first trip to a kennel...report back on that later.
