>Galena (Tuesday, June 8)


After a quick stop in Ruby to fuel (thanks Ivan!), we made it to Tanana. Charley Green and friends arrived with a truck to pick us up and head to the community center. During the busy summer season in Galena when the weather is nice and bugs are down, most children were taking advantage of open swim at the pool. Several families took advantage of the opportunity to meet Coastie and learn about boating safety. Special thank you to March Runner, Tribal Administrator, for her help in arranging transportation, showers and a fuel pump. After refueling the boats, we headed down river.
