We visited to North Pole today and I was disappointed a gift shop and a few candy canes. I will say they had an awesome Santa Clause and that was it. So then we started seeking lunch and that turned out to be ice cream at Cold Stone Creamery and I decided on starbucks coffee and lunch a little later as we were not quite ready for lunch. So now we were headed to the Gold Dredge 8 and this was a great time we were also informed about the Alaska Pipe Line and then took a train ride to see the number 8 dredge and do some gold panning for ourselves and that proved to be rewarding we found $23.00 worth of gold between Harry and me. Now Jan & Bill came up with around $45.00 dollars worth and Jan quickly made a pair earings out of her's very nice I might add. Today was the warmest day yet for us I believe it got to 82 degrees today very warm. We still needed to stop at RV parts store so a couple more stops and were at back to rigs, oops were are not done yet we need to catch up laundry so pull laundry together and about 1 1/2 hours later we are done for the day. Whew what a day.
