Writing this blog from Shelbyville, Kentucky. Mom and Dad moved to a tent today...surprise surprise! They are somewhere out on the tundra between the airport and the city of Nome. There are several others campers where they currently reside. Musk oxen are regularly seen on the tundra near Nome, among other mammals we won't mention. The dogs bark at everything that moves or makes noise. There is no chance of hiding or taking cover should an animal become privy to their presence. Not very comforting. They will apparently be camping there until after they get the container moved to the property. Awaiting Department of Transportation decision about need for culvert or not. Decision expected tomorrow.
