That's What I Call a Road Trip
This summer I drove over 6000 miles from Omaha, Nebraska all the way up to Fairbanks, Alaska and back. It was a long voyage, but I drove every mile of it myself because I love to drive. I guess I should have been an over-the-road truck driver instead of wasting thirty plus years in manufacturing.
The Alaska Highway which begins in Dawson Creek, British Columbia was first used to supply troops in Alaska during World War II. Most of the highway is modernized and fairly easy to navigate, but some 200+ miles between White Horse, Yukon and Tok, Alaska is nothing but loose gravel and flying rock. The dust gets so bad it is hard to see and I got two big chips in my windshield from flying rock.
The trip was worth it though, I am already planning to go back next year.
