In this episode, I’m joined by my dad Britt Freel, as well as my uncles Jerry and Tracy. I get to hear a bunch of stories about the old days, how we came to Alaska, and what it was like growing up in what was then a wilderness town of Fairbanks, as well as hunting moose and caribou, and what “the bus” was like as a hunting camp.
