Alaska Trip Day 9

July 8




Hello All

Today started out at 6:30 AM  we started out by filling the tank with fuel and drove West.  The temp was in the low 40 and we put on the electric gear the highest temp we saw all day was 65.  It was a great drive through the mountains.  About 45 miles out was a turn off on highway 40 which is a nice drive to the Alaska Highway.  We stopped for breakfast and a fill up even though we hadn't gone far yet.  The route on Highway 40 was 100 miles before any services.  We saw moose, elk, wolfs and deer.  After as short fuel brake and pit stop to use the bathrooms we were off again the next fuel was 130 miles out.  We stop for dinner at Burger King.  The next hour took us to the start of the Alaska highway.  It started to rain as we stopped for dinner and continued to rain until we arrived a Fort St. John.

I am unsure where we will be staying tomorrow as the area is getting less populated.

Traveled 388 miles today.
