You never know who you will run in to buying a fur hat in Fairbanks.
Expedition leader Matthew Sturm ran into Alaska Governor Sarah Palin in a downtown fur shop while he was being fitted for expedition gear. The Governor expressed interest in the 2007 SnowSTAR Traverse and Matthew took a moment of her time to explain the basics of the route and the scientific and educational aspects of the trip. She was impressed! Matthew left the fur shop with a new fur hat and wishes from the Governor for "Best of Luck and Safe Travels." The big journey begins tomorrow.
