Your All-Purpose River

Up in Fairbanks they don't believe in letting a river rest during the winter. Here's the Ice Road shortcut to Chena Pump Road from Pike's Landing. "Cuts 10 minutes off the trip". Today was the finish of the Iron Dog Snowmachine race and the locals gathered to drive around on the river, land and take off again in an airplane, and jump their snow machines. Beer was involved...

Good thing those snow machines were blessed, eh Newsman? I showed the science meeting attendees your post at noon--on the big screen!
