I received a nice note from a friend who read my column where I mentioned being in Alaska. He said that it brought back a lot of memories of when he used to drive truck up the Alaskan Highway and back. I never knew he drove that route, but I can imagine the stories he could write about those drives. When I lived in Alaska, I did a lot of driving, mostly in the Anchorage area, but ever so often, I would go up north towards Fairbanks. In the late 60s early 70s there was only one highway heading up to Fairbanks.
