On the Road Home


We finished up last night in Fort Nelson, BC. We've had a long couple of days headed out of Anchorage. We made slow time on the Glenn Highway due to construction and ended up sleeping on the side of the road in Haines Junction, YT on Wednesday evening. That left us about 80 miles outside of Whitehorse.

Thursday we made tracks through the rest of the Yukon and took a quick dip in Liard Hot Springs after crossing the YT/BC border. The drive along the Alaska Highway has been stunning -- watch for pics real soon. It's been a medley of incredible views, wonderful roads and an array of wildlife.

Should be in Quesnel, BC or further south Friday, then back in the home country on Saturday. Will probably update posts, pics and video then.

Car #9 has been travelling with us -- it's been great getting to know the guys from Georgia and they should be with us all the way home.

May I make a possible correction in an article I found on the internet (below)

http://www.challengedriving.com/Scottsdale%20teams.htm

which indicates that Gathering of Spirits is a rock shop in Skagway, AK. Maybe you have this confused with the Back Alley Rock Shop which carries Alaskan "mosquitoes"?

We saw your car on the road on Sunday, August 27th. It was in Bellingham and I was curious what the ALCAN 5000 was - now I know. How cool! Your cars looked nice and dusty like it had just seen great adventures - sure sounds like you did. Glad you made it!
