Alaska Day 70 to Tok

We woke up to very light drizzle this morning.  We had 200 miles to go.  The first 50 or so we used the wipers ever once in awhile. The rain went away and the sun came out and the winds started up I was told.  Hard to tell with a tag axle vehicle. We saw two moose and three Bald Eagles. The roads were good. Here are some pics.DSC_0001

We always stop here for some elk, reindeer and buffalo meat, etc…DSC_0010 DSC_0011 DSC_0012

Then we arrived at the Sourdough Campground in Tok.  We always wanted to stay here but always got side tracked to another campground. Our site was tight but OK!DSC_0015


Then it was diner time at Fast Eddy’s. It’s the best restaurant in town – it’s the only restaurant in town since the other closed up.DSC_0016


Here we all met, everybody except Jean & Claudette who are further down the road…safe travel guys…DSC_0017

I got my usual fried mushrooms. Oh they are the best in town!!!! I love their mushrooms. Everyone agreed this is the place to have any meal. 

Back at our campground the entertainment begin with the sourdough pancake toss.  If you get it in the bucket you get a free breakfast. The boy did.DSC_0030 DSC_0035


We had a fun disagreement with the line. Then I did something that has never been done before evidently. You could tell by the expression on the workers face. Just before I tossed the pancake, I took a bite out it. It was funny. He was baffled and didn’t know what to say.DSC_0036

Then he made me throw behind the pole because I was a bad boy…who me?DSC_0037

Not even close but everybody had a good laugh.DSC_0038

The others did not fare well either.DSC_0045 DSC_0048 DSC_0049 DSC_0050 DSC_0055

Then it was time for night time entertainment.  This guy could sing. It really surprised everybody  how good he was. Him and his wife have been full timing and working on the road since 2009.  Hey Nick…….DSC_0061

Then the fire was started for the marshmallow cook out.DSC_0066
