When they say the Alaska Hwy is not for the faint of heart, it is an understatement.

Yesterday was only 423 miles, but with the spotty gravel roads and rain it made for a full 12 hours in the saddle.

The Alaska Hwy starts in Dawson Creek British Columbia and runs all the way to Fairbanks Alaska.

Some 1493 miles. 

It was built by US Army Corp of Engineers starting in 1942.

These little tiwns we are staying in are inhabited by the decendants of the civilians left to run the outpost.

I am always intrigued by the history of places, especially such remote places as this.

Destruction Bay gets its name because of the high winds that come through the mountain passes to the south. 

Today we will be crossing back into the good ole US of A.

And on to Fairbanks. 

This morning has a sad note to it. My Brother in Law, Milton Davlin passed away. He has been suffering from Parkinsons and Alzheimers. 

He was a good man, a good Husband and a good Father.

I will be riding in his honor today.

He is finally free of his earthly bondage. 

Please keep my Sister Sharon Davlin and her Family in your Prayers today
