Hello All

We got up at 6:00 and got ready to leave for Beaver Creek.  We plan to drive to Tok for Breakfast and to stop at the gift shop.  Not long on the road and we saw a moose we stop and got a picture. It was quite cool when we left at 55 Degf but got colder on the road, the temp dropped down to 46 a couple of time in the valleys along the way.  We stopped at Fast Eddies, this is where we stayed on the way up.  We had a nice breakfast and talked to three out riders that were heading to Fairbanks.  After a fuel break, Post Office stop and gift store stop we were on the road again.  The road from Glenallen was in good shape with some brake up's and patching.  We were able to make around 48 MPH on the average.  The road from Tok to Beaver Creek was a bad as before most all the way speeds were 25 to 40 MPH with a lot of dirt.  Tomorrow will be worst until we get past Destruction Bay  and make it to Haines Junction.  We are planning  on making it to White Horse tomorrow.  We signed up for the dinner show tonight it cost $37 per person I hope it is a good meal and show. We had time when we go in to do laundry two loads and 1 1/2 hour later and were are ready.  While we were at the laundry a storm came through, we waited a littlie extra time as not to get wet.
