Alaska Day 67 To South of Delta Junction

Well it was a big 187 miles from the North Pole to our present location which is near MM 175 of the Richardson Hwy. It’s south of the Delta Junction before Glennallen.DSC_0005 DSC_0008

Yep, the Alaska pipeline and me wearing a Gypsy Journal orange T-shirt.  Maybe you can get an orange T-shirt at the next Gypsy Journal Rally.  Well, at least a t-shirt.  I will be there with a seminar not only on driving but on yes you guessed it – Alaska.

Man what a sight…..this glacier was only one of several.DSC_0093

I got over two dozen pictures loaded here so I’m going to wait till tomorrow for some things that happened.  One of us got our rig stuck, skeeters, squirrels, & netting plus what ever else happens will be on tomorrow’s blog.  It’s going to be a funny one. Oh Larry & Marilyn got their frig replaced and might be back on the road from Anchorage hopefully Friday.

See ya……….
