June 20, 1955
Slept late again today but then we have just about seen everything here. We plan to leave real early in the morning and hope to get to Whitehorse tomorrow night, at least we can be sure of getting a bath there. Went out to the University and went to their museum which was a good one for it’s size and location. Then over to the airport again but this time we watched planes land and take off — we talked to people – an airport cop. Had a cup of coffee and Bob talked with the weather man. We will be going down to eat supper soon as its six and then I’m going to call you.
The wind has changed and Dad now says we won’t go to Whitehorse so no bath for a few nights yet but then I’m not dirty anyway. This morning we went out and took some more pictures of gold mining and Bob still has to take some pictures of the Fairbanks fire hydrants.
Just got back from talking with you from eating and taking pictures of fire hydrants and log cabins. Filled the car up with gas so will be ready to go in the morning.
Sure got a big kick out of talking with you — that is the longest distance that you will probably ever talk with me.
Just think here I am eating and two girls come up and say, “Hello Mr. Hunt”, you could have knocked me over with a feather. Anyway this is one hell of a long ways from home to see someone from home.
Bob just said that it feels good to be starting home and I feel the same way and after Dad talked to mother — he said it sure was good to talk to his little sweetheart.
Guess that’s about all so I will go mail this.
And that, my friends, ends our saga. That is the last letter from the series (at least the last that we have). Thanks for your positive feedback and I’m glad you enjoyed the trip!
