Today is July 12th, 2019, the day that the entire Alaska team finally united in Anchorage! But before we get to that, let’s start with the beginning of our day.
Luke, Bryan, Amy, and myself woke up at the AMC facility in Anchorage around 8am. We showered and then hung out in our room for a bit until 10am, when Darlene and Carl came into our room for AMC orientation. Darlene told us about AMC and also what to do if a bear attacks us. Carl led us in a devotion from the book of Genesis.
At the same time in Sterling, Mary Anne and Hannah were enjoying their last day of VBS. After the final closing, they hit the road and headed to Anchorage.
While waiting for them to arrive, Luke, Bryan, Amy, and myself went to Moose’s Tooth restaurant for a yummy pizza lunch after picking up our rental van.
The four of us then went to Walmart for supplies and souvenirs. While there, Mary Anne and Hannah arrived in Anchorage and met us!
We all checked out then headed to La Mex for dinner. After dinner, we drove to Alaska Wild Berry Products to see the world’s tallest (3 stories) chocolate fountain and one of the original golden tickets from the Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory movie.
Most of us bought some more souvenirs there then we headed back to AMC for showers and bed.
Goodnight from Anchorage, Alaska! Tomorrow we head to Anchor Point.
