MONDAY

ALASKAN STOP #2


Chistochina River Pullout

OUTSIDE OF CHISTOCHINA, AK



Today was all about getting from Point A to Point B with a pitstop in between.

Once we got near the midsized town of Tok, AK the road conditions improved greatly. Tok is where the Alaska Highway (officially Alaska State Highway 1) meets the Glenn Highway (officially Alaska State State Highway 2) which runs south down to Valdez, AK.

We stopped in a truck stop in Tok so I could upload the previous two blogposts. There is excellent cell signal in town, but just outside of town it's nonexistent. While I worked on the blog, Tricia spent $5 for a private hot shower. Later she managed to launder two loads of clothes while I finished up posting and took my shower.

We ate lunch in THE POD and filled ROVER with $5.20 gasoline, before driving a mile further into town to find the turnoff for the Glenn Highway. We left the Alaska Highway in the rear view mirror for now, we'll return to this exact intersection in a week or so to pick up where we left off and finish the Alaska Highway.



SCENES FROM TODAY'S DRIVE



The 10 Highest Mountains in the United States are all found in Alaska. This snow covered mountain is #6, Mount Sanford in the Wrangell Mountains (16,237 feet).
The best thing about tonight's campsite, other than it being FREE, is that it has strong Verizon coverage so I can upload a post tomorrow morning before hitting the road again.
Oh yeah, it also has an outhouse nearby if needed.
