Alaska Railroad, Anchorage to Denali N.P.
One of the only flagstaff railways left in the world. Which basically means you can flag it like a bus and get off/on anywhere, with or without a station.
Mostly used by hikers, tourists, but also residents, that live in small towns without power and water or road & boat access, and this train is their only lifeline.
What a busy busy day!
3 customers today.
I started with the mini van. It got a it’s bi monthly maintenance wash. Then an interior detail, plus some stain removal. I did all the leather in the van, and reloaded the coating in the glass.
The Denali got its monthly maintenance wash, with the basic interior detail as well. All the leather inside it is completely coated, so it was wiped clean and reloaded as well. The coating on this car is a little over 1 1/2 years old and still going super strong.
The final vehicle of the day was Melton’s heat and Air truck. It came in for its bi monthly maintenance wash as well. This was its time for another waxing. So I washed it and used the nanoskin to remove any debris and contamination from the paint before waxing. Then it got two coats of our best wax. The interior was taken care of like usual. It has the leather coated as well to protect against all the grease and dirt the guys have on them while out in the field. So I treated the leather and reloaded it as well. Finished up with polishing the chrome and applying the tire shine.
I really appreciate all my customers new, old, and the constant repeat ones that are on my yearly and bi monthly packed, and those that aren’t but keep coming back. Thank you all so much!
Gear and Food weekend continues...
We’re looking for juuuust the right amount of grub to keep us fueled but not anchored to the mountain. @climbaboveparkinsons stealing my dried bananas.
Enjoying some Mountain High Pizza Pie in Talkeetna before hitting the road to Fairbanks today. We spent the day in Denali National Park yesterday which was stunning with winter landscapes still lingering. And once again, I find myself longing and planning on when/how to return.
They say every person has their park. Denali, without a doubt, is mine. What’s your park?
