Helen’s Warning

FAIRBANKS – This is Helen; she’s from France and working at the University of Fairbanks in the Biology Department.  “You keep a good pace,” she said, as I biked up the hill with all my gear to the University “Museum.of the North.
Helen was riding a “fixie” – one gear, no brakes and, yes, it was designed that way.  “Oh, you should stay here longer,” she said, as I explained I was getting on the road after the museum to head south.  “Watch for the wild fires,” she warned. 
This Alaska – if it’s not one thing, it’s another.
