Alaska Journey Day 89 / by Dave Hileman

Tom’s Day Out

Mr. Light had his last day (this trip) in Alaska today. We did  errands in the morning: ATM, oil change, truck wash, propane fill, re-packing, PO and three stores in preparation for leaving tomorrow. Picked Tom up downtown and went to a couple of tourist gift shops. (If you need a tourist, this is where you go.) Lunch was at the Spenard Roadhouse, excellent. After a walk along Cooks Inlet and a final moose hunt, we dropped Tom at the Ted Stevens International Airport and headed for Freddy’s, a local market, to finish getting our supplies for the start of the trip back. We plan to go by way of Fairbanks for the best opportunity to see the Northern Lights. 

Cadillac’s Most Correct Viewpoint

I spent the day making tough decisions. First, I opted for a French Vanilla Latte, a bold move to bolster my international credentials. Then I decided to send the Chief of Ceremonies back to Mr. Mook for retraining. I think he has some limited potential but clearly Mr. Mook needs to be more rigorous in his training. I intend to reward the Chief of C once he shows progress. I sent the Chief of Personal Security to escort him to the plane parking lot. Brr-Ice reports that it went pretty well once he got out of the vehicle and insisted that the minion get on a plane. I think they will let him fly it cause he knows the way to Virginia. Then, since I am still in the secure facility, I started my list of Things to Change once I am president. It is a long list already and includes lots of saluting. Two more notes to Ms. M but we will be together again tomorrow, … bliss.
