The first Night we stayed at Sue and Larrys place.

Our first day in Chicken as we started to setup the base camp.

This is a large boiler that the old timers used to create steam so they could then melt the permafrost (it was about 30 feet behind our camp.

Our Camp shortly after set up(boiler is by the arrow).

Aaaah. were here!

The HOT spot on our claim!

Time for lunch and to enjoy the view.

Look close and you'll see a bears foot print. Print was found 3 feet away from kitchen tent.
No damage was done.

The 2nd time the bear came thru we were not so lucky.

I guess the bear decided that foam was't very tasty.

These guys seemed to always be on the road.

Many Eagles were seen over the summer.

Stopping at the ghost town of Frankln.

Heres the answer to the question of how far did we go with the Hovercraft over the summer.
