Sandra started packing up the apartment Thursday and finished Friday. Friday we loaded most everything into the trailer. Early Saturday morning we loaded the rest of our belongings into the trailer and finished up cleaning the apartment.

Goodbye Yellowstone National Park

Day 1 Saturday 08/10 we left the apartment. Even with leaving early we got caught in a couple of bison jams. We stopped for the night at Fort McLeod Alberta Canada at the Daisy May Campground & RV park. We drove 504 miles and our travel time was 14 hours, that included our stop times. (fuel, food, bathroom breaks, and etc.) That works out to be and average of 36 miles per hour.

Day 2 Sunday 08/11 we left the park and hit the road heading for Dawson Creek British Columbia Canada. We ended up spending the night in a hotel. We drove 607 miles and our travel time was 14 hours, that included our stop times. (fuel, food, bathroom breaks, and etc.) That works out to be and average of 43 miles per hour.

They fixed the Dodge dealer’s screw up.

Day 3 Monday 08/12 we left the hotel after breakfast and drove to Boe’s RV Sales and Service. We were there for an hour and a half, the trailer brake are working now! Off to Liard Hotsprings Campground. We drove 453 miles and our travel time was 12 hours and 15 minutes, that included our stop times. (Jeep brake controller repair, fuel, food, bathroom breaks, and etc.) That works out to be and average of 37 miles per hour.

Day 4 Tuesday 08/13 today was our easy day. We spent several hour at the hotsprings. It was almost noon before we left for Whitehorse Yukon Territory. We stopped for the night at Pioneer RV Park in Whitehorse. We drove 382 miles and our travel time was 9 hours and 15 minutes, that included our stop times but not our time in the hotsprings. (fuel, food, bathroom breaks, and etc.) That works out to be and average of 41 miles per hour.

Day 5 Wednesday 08/14 we left Whitehorse thinking our goal for the day was Tok Alaska. It turned out that we pushed for home. We got home the next day at 10 minutes past midnight. So we technically got home on Thursday 08/15. We drove 665 miles and our travel time was 16 hours, that included our stop times. (fuel, food, bathroom breaks, and etc.) That works out to be and average of 42 miles per hour.
