Another 590 miles today. We're in Whitehorse Yukon Terriority. Washed truck and camper This AM, 30 min. Within 1 hour dirty again..but not to bad. Can't stand starting out dirty. Will clean up tomorrow when we get where ever we go to. Thinking about shooting down towards Palmer, Copper River area for some ATV fun and fishing. Need to be in Denali by the 10th for some reserved tours so plenty of time to explore.
So far so good. Only tire issue is one wearing on the outside edge but I didn't notice any change to it today. Pretty sure from my old tire selling days it's because of a balance issue. I'll put a new one in Alaska somewhere.
The Alcan is no worse than Lousiana or Missippippi roads. A few smal gravel areas where you slow down but not bad. They have all the rough bumps marked with road side markers so you can sorta drive around them. I think the winter was pretty easy on the roads. Not much traffic. Run between 63-69 staying with 18 wheelers....they will hit the animals before me I hope.
Saw lots more bear, caribou, bison etc. beautiful lakes. This end of the Alcan seems to be extra dry. They need some rain. Bears are so fat and black and shinny though, as well as all the animals.
The exchange rate is really good for Americans now. Perfect time to travel. Diesel runs about $3.50 to $4.00 a gallon so not bad.
No chips or any damage to camper. The rock that hit the windshield came off a oil rig truck so could have happened in Texas. No chips or anything to truck so far. It's 9 PM here and 11 pm in Texas. Sun still shinning at 11pm...and up again around 3am. Windows blacked out in bedroom so no problem. We've adjusted to the traveling So no longer sore from riding. Was real anxious at first being away from home for so long but we're adjusting to it. Adios until tomorrow.
