Cabin Life

    The city of Fairbanks and surrounding area is underlain by discontinuous permafrost, which basically mean that the ground beneath is frozen during the whole year, well it thaws and then refreezes during the summer and fall. The actual downtown area of Fairbanks and the university do have running water, but other parts does not. There are many cabins surrounding the university area, and many of these do not have any water at all (dry cabin) and other have a large water system (2-300 gallons worth). I ended up living in a dry cabin and here is a collection of all my posts about that cabin, but also other cabins around the state without any running water that we stayed at.
