The first item on the agenda this morning was to run the generator to recharge the trailer battery, as the heater fan had just about drained it during the night.  It was cold.  We then went to the Riley Creek area for showers and laundry detail.   Ahh! Clean body and clean clothes. 

The sun was out, so we tried again to see the sled dog demonstration.  The dogs that were up and about, out of their houses yesterday, were all curled up asleep in their little homes today.  Even the puppies were curled up asleep.  Only when they went to get dogs to pull the sled did the dogs get excited.  You see them saying “Take me, take me!”  The talk was informative and interesting and once again I needed to resist wanting to take a puppy home.  They enjoy 20 degree weather, so I don’t think they would do well in Maryland.

After the sled dogs we returned to the trailer for lunch and some down time before going to the Cabin Night Dinner. 

The dinner for Cabin Night was very good; salmon, ribs, corn, baked beans, salad, and cobbler for dessert.  The entertainment was good.  Our waitress, who was also one of the performers, is from Hagerstown.  Her aunt owns a gift shop there.  She said she is planning to move to Alaska permanently.  She was here three years ago when we came to the show.

After dinner we made a brief stop at a wi-fi hotspot and got some gas for the generator, $5.31 a gallon. 

Tomorrow we will try and take a hike to Horseshoe Lake.
