    :cry

    Recently PBS has been showing a series about the great lodges of the National Parks (and another one about the lodges of the ones in the US, too :wink: ). They tend to be rustic and to burn down. But, like Swamp Castle, they get rebuilt. Here's to the good luck, good fortune, and paid-up insurance of the Tok Lodge.

    Ouch. Another urban renewal project in Tok.

    Well gruvers it may be a good idea to make hotel reservations at the Golden Bear Motel early this year. With the across the street competition gone the tour busses will be looking for other places to book their room nights.

    Golden Bear 1-907-883-2561

    Remember to tell them your part of the motorcycle group. That way they will try to book rooms close together so the only people we bother at night will be D2D riders.
