Day 10

Better late than never. .right?

Day 10 – March 17, 2011
Neither Justin or I wore any green. Sad but true. We have been trying to wear the same clothes and just wash them because it’s so much easier than getting into the suitcase every single day. 
Starting the day: We left Whitehorse, YT at 8:11am. It was 24 degrees and sunny. But there was snow on the ground.
The dogs: Had their first elevator ride! Once they got into the elevator they kind of looked around and then tried to jump out. Siren hates it. . like she hates most things. Poor girl. She will never get to broaden her horizons with an attitude like that. Of course our sweet Raven didn’t seem to mind it too much.
Ending the day:  We stopped for the night in Tok, Alaska around 3:28pm. It was 20 degrees but still sunny.
Time spent behind the wheel: Justin. And Siren when she jumped in his seat while he was getting gas. I have a feeling  I wont see the open road for a while. At least until summer!
Total Miles: 399.9 – One of the easier days!
Highlights of the day: We finally got out of Canada. Not that there was anything wrong with Canada. It was just a long speed bump in our road to Alaska. And not to mention they use the metric system which totally confused me. And their Department of Transportation (if they even have one!) sucked. The roads were most of the time bad. I had to use one of those nasty rest areas today. It was horrible. Just as Justin said, a giant hole in the ground. G-ross. For tonight we have a cute little cabin booked. It is really nice and the owners are super sweet.  Nancy and Bill moved from Fairbanks, AK in the 60’s to Tok. Which is pronounced “toke” because word on the street is most of the people here like to participate in extracurricular activities if you know what I mean. I don’t think Nancy and Bill get down like that.  They started this little cabin business and also raise super cute sled puppies. The cabin is gorgeous and is probably the nicest place we have stayed so far.
Tomorrow. .Anchorage!
