Response to Warpy (Reply #8)

9. Ester is a little town SW of Fairbanks, about 6 miles from where my cabin is.

Haven't felt any aftershocks; it felt shallow and sharp when it hit, so didn't expect many if any. No damage - however, if same had happened in LA, it could have been bad. Few folks and less buildings up here!

Ester rocks - it's a great place with a lot of us aging hippies and some new ones, too! Home of the Malemute Saloon (open only in tourist season), Ester Gold Camp, the Ester Republic (a great little liberal periodical), the most rockin' 4th of July Parade anywhere, and 3 of my closest friends! My best friend and his husband were married there in 1999; not legally of course, but the wedding was wonderful and his mom, a Methodist minister, performed the service.

There isn't a DU'er in existence who would not love the place!
