Now That’s a Full Service Grocery Store

There’s one laundromat in Seward and the sign at the entrance says it all “Whiners not allowed. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone especially whiners.”. There’s lots of washers and dryers in the laundromat but about 1/3 third of them were out of order and there were a lot of residents and campers wanting to use them — a little scrambling but no fights broke out. As the going price was double what we paid in Anchorage you would have thought that they could afford to fix the machines!

Another rainy day another drive. This time we were headed for the other side of the Kenai peninsula. As we didn’t leave Seward till 4:30pm we decided that 120 miles would be enough for one day and we would stop at the Fred Meyer store in Soldotna for the night (the milepost guide indicated that it was OK with the store for RVs to stay overnight in the parking lot). Talk about a full service store: they have groceries, hardware, clothing, etc, and a gas station. They also had a dump station and a potable water source and allowed RVers to stay up to 3 days. Now there was a down side .... not far from us was a refrigerator trailer (the kind you haul food in) that was running and ran all night long. There were also at least 50 RVs in the parking lot so it was on the crowded side. But I can’t complain too much as the price was right — free!
