From Haines Junction, Yukon Territory, through British Columbia, to Haines, Alaska
A week in Taiwan, but it definitely needs more time to explore!
DAD shares some thoughts on traveling and arriving to where he is today.
Day 84- August 23 From Sisters we planned a short day of about 45 miles due to the last big climb, but the day so turned into 60ish miles to get to Nimrod. We packed up our things quickly as it was quite cold and we were hungry. A fellow camper told us about the Gallery, a breakfast diner. We […]

Day 43- July 13 The HI-Plains Motel in Leoti (pronounced Lay-Oh-Ta) served hot breakfast to order free, which was awesome. Then we continued on. We were looking forward to reaching Colorado today though there wasn’t much service on route. We had some head winds. We crossed into a new time zone and then finally the Colorado state line. It was […]
