On the way to Fairbanks we stopped in the North Pole and checked in with Santa! Everyone there was very busy and very happy! The North Pole is an amazing little town!
In Fairbanks now, waiting and hoping for a quick repair to Marlene's bike. The rear wheel bearings have squealed for the last time, hopefully! Thankfully, they did not seize and cause a catastrophe! Plus, we are thankful for the serendipity of the only motorbike shop in Fairbanks having the correct parts needed to fix Marlene's bike already on order! They were ordered for a local customer's bike. The dealer called the customer, (whom they said was a great guy, with several other bikes to ride) to ask if he would mind if they reorder the parts for him, and used the ones coming in tomorrow on Marlines bike! He said sure, use the bearings & reorder for him! His parts will now be in on or before the 18th.
