I woke up at 4 AM local time (5 AM Yukon time). I just did some research on campsites in different future destination areas. I try to have a plan B and C for everybody traveling in the “Last Frontier Gang” as added option for them.
It’s very cloudy already and rain is being called for down in Tok. Yes, the sun is up. I will still wash the RV and car in Tok rain or shine. I need to wash the radiator and Cummins engine real good along with everything else. I did have one compartment door that opened up a little yesterday and needleless to say it’s trashed with dust/dirt. Just about all the other compartments have a light film of dust. Larry said I could use his shop vac.
So we pulled out about 7:30 Am with 78 miles to go with the first two more dirt.
Downtown Tok. I got fuel at $4.78 and a 103 gallons with a total of 650 miles.
Then it was 4 0”clock time. We saluted the men & women of the Armed Services – present & past – THANK YOU..We all talked about our adventures driving the Top Of The World Highway. Everyone thought it was worth it all things considered.
At the end of the blog I will keep doing the mileage each day and total mileage from the lower 48 U.S. border. The cost of fuel per gallon I will put in the blog when purchased. The cost of a campsite I will put in the blog. I won’t be posting the total running cost of all that “other” stuff. It really can only be used for us because of all of our tastes are so different. What you might buy at a grocery store or how often you go out to eat is different. Fuel mileage for your vehicle is different and then there is the “fun” costs and that is really different.
P.S. The ferry across the Yukon River from Dawson city is free. And yes to Otis Redding.
