The Dalton is supposed to be a really big deal. One of the most remote stretches of road in the U.S. At the end is just an oil field work site and the Arctic Ocean. It’s the farthest north you…

Leaving Fairbanks

We had a great time with the Adv-0-DnA crew. We swapped stories and beers, traded off some kid duties, and Jason did some sort of work on their Airstream. But, alas it was time to part ways. Our plan was…

So here we were in Fairbanks for the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year. I had really been looking forward to this. But for weeks the sun has still been up when we went to bed, and up…

Eventually, the smoke caught up with us and we kept rolling north. All the way to the North Pole. Well, the town with that name, anyway. Years ago, someone bought this town and re-named it North Pole in an attempt…

We had the bright idea of driving north until we were out of the smoke. We made it up to Birch Lake and the skies looked clear. It was another hot day and a clear lake for swimming, so we…

Border day – back into the U.S. There was quite a bit of technology at the Alaskan border, but the agent just swiped our passports and said hello. Pretty simple.     This part of Alaska is pretty swampy, so the mosquito…

Haines Highway

From Haines, you must cross into British Columbia and The Yukon in order to reach mainland Alaska by road. It’s a scenic drive. But, the scenery sure was nice. As was the wildlife performances. We finally got some poutine. It’s…

Another day, another ferry ride. Juneau is not connected by road to any other part of Alaska. It is the capitol of Alaska, but only accessible by boat or plane. There have been multiple plans over the years to connect…

Juneau How It Is

About a mile from the ferry terminal was a $10 forest service camp site right on Auke Bay. The catch was that it cost an additional $10 to ‘reserve’ the space – even when standing there with plenty of sites…
These spendy, spendy toll roads around the outskirts of Mexico DF are as close as we got to driving in the city.
