Day 45 – July 20, 2001 – Our dinner last night and all the flights out kept us up pretty late so we slept in a little this morning. We had the day in Fairbanks to work on cars, recover from the trip, and do any preparation necessary for leaving Fairbanks tomorrow. All the cars were worked on in the garage of Gary Nash, a member of the Vernon Nash Antique Auto Club in Fairbanks. Gary made his garage available to us day and night while we were there and we were able to get all four cars ready for the trip.After a trip like the one we had been on, we needed to clean everything and make sure we had all the nuts and bolts we had started with.
The Antique Auto Club held a cookout for us later that evening at Alaskaland. Organized by Sherry Camarata, a large group of their members came out and brought their classic cars. We had a great time visiting with them, admiring their cars, and telling them about our trip. Afterwards, we finished the T repairs/adjustments and packed everything up. Tomorrow, we start the trip toward home.
