Chicken Alaska
« on: June 08, 2017, 02:24:57 PM »
For those who have been to Chicken. It's not like I remember it when I used to go there.

Doesn't look like the Chicken we saw in 2000 either.  :D

Boy, I'll say!  It was a muddy mess when we were there.

Is that the right chicken? Sure didn't look like that when we were there last year. It was more like I remember it in 2003.

We passed through Chicken in Aug 2016 and that is what chicken looked like.  Well the people weren't there, but the photo in the link looks like one of the three commercial operations we saw.  We never could locate a "town" of Chicken.  Only three separate commercial operations. We originally planned on spending the night there, but decided the place was more "commercial" than we wanted and moved on to boondock on the way toward the Canadian border.

There was no "town" of Chicken. Just the "outpost" commercial operation.  But it sure has grown & gone upscale since we were there in 2002!  They probably even have a 4-legged dog instead of good ole Lucky!

We stopped there in 2002 on our way to Dawson City via the Top of the World Highway and were asked to carry a message to the folks there. It seems a couple of the [very few] residents in Chicken had gone on a vacation trip and there were no longer enough people there to field a baseball team for an upcoming match against Dawson.  :)

That's what I remember when I lived in Fairbanks and drove to Eagle.

This is what the original Chicken place looked like in Aug 2016.  Fresher paint, but pretty much the same as your pic from 2002.
