Day 11

Had a great nights sleep last night. Maybe it was the fact that I am actually on a mattress, or maybe it was the big dinner and the fatigue. Whatever it was, I slept great.

Morning went by fast. I called local business’s in search of a muffler, and had no luck.

My threads on Adv Rider and KLR650.net were dry.

So with that, we headed into town to get some breakfast.

Now, what I forgot to mention from the night before…

My bike is extremely loud right now… EVERYONE looks at me as I ride by. It’s damned embarrassing, and damned illegal. Not much I can do about it now though.

We ended up at a place called “Sourdough Sam’s”… It makes me wonder if they are related to Sourdough Joe in Dawson, the first nights dinner we had of fish and chips (Which were fantastic!).

Breakfast was Chicken Fried Steak and Eggs, with hasbrowns and Biscuits and Gravy.

Yes, they offer Biscuits and gravy as a side choice with there meals! You can have toast, pancakes or biscuits and gravy!

The meal was very hearty, and it filled me well, but the gravy could use a lot of work.

We then set out for Walmart across town.

Both of us having to get some supplies, I needed some laundry soap, as the dorms laundry room does not have a dispenser, and a couple other items.

Soon we were back on the road, and heading to the dorms to drop off our Walmart purchases and then off to Adventure Cycle Works to have my rear tire fitted.

While there, and talking with Dan, the owner, I inquired if I could have my Stock Muffler shipped there, so that I could put it on when I came back down from Prudhoe.

He was more than happy to let me have it shipped there, and so with that, on my return to our room, I got in touch with my roommate who grabbed the exhaust and shipped it off quickly.

2 day service to Fairbanks, is 96 bucks. Its well worth whatever fines I could pick up between Fairbanks, Prudhoe, and Home in the coming weeks if I don’t replace it.

After, we headed back to the dorms, and took the rest of the afternoon to rest and do laundry, while packing up what we can to make getting out in the morning easier.

For dinner we went to a Thai Place that is supposed to be the best in Fairbanks. I’m not a huge fan of Thai, but Geoff is.

With our tab at over 55 bucks between the both of us, and “terrible” Thai food, as Geoff says (I wouldn’t know, I just ate whatever), we headed back to the dorms for a nights rest.
