Holy Mackrel, we didn't have Mc Don alds there when I left in 72.
To get a burger ya had ta go to a resturant or down on C Street, most of the bars down there had grills in them. There was one on the corner that served fried taters with it. They wern't french fries tho. Just slices off the tater an then deep fried.
I remember the Good Friday of 64. I was up on Tudor Road just across (kitty cornered ) from the Pines gittin my oil changed so we could leave ta go Spring Bear Huntin that evening when it shake rattled and rolled. My truck started out on the hoist, and wound up nosed over in the station, with the tailgate holdin up the roof. I had ta borrow my neighbors pickup ta git ta the base, (Ft Richardson), and then spent 3 days gittin ta Seward. When we got back ta Anchorage my little John Deere 1010 had disappeared, but there was a note on the door. The State had confiscated it to take downtowen to C st in the clean up. They couldn't put big dozers down on the jelly. When I got it back it had new top rollers, new final drive sprocket on the left, 5 new boogies, one new track section, anmd several leaks repaired. The State even brot me a check fer the use of it. Two months worth. Course they put bout 600 hrs on it.
