Reality of the road - Talkeetna, Alaska

Here I am at the Talkeetna Roadhouse in Talkeetna, Alaska, 37 years old, crammed into a bunk bed I am paying $22 a night for, trying to do some work in private.   There is a common area I've done work at as well, but this evening I wanted more quiet than that. I have been eating stuff I bought at the grocery store for the most part, but I dropped a bunch of money on a scenic flight today.   My priorities on the road are pretty interesting sometimes!
