We have arrived back at Dawson Creek, mile 0 of the Alaska Highway, and the end of our Alaska adventure.
We have been together 65 days, have traveled 6,423 miles, with pulling the Sphinx 5,427.7 miles and 995.3 miles sightseeing.
We have been asked what was our favorite site or thing we did during this trip. The scenery in British Columbia and Alaska is the most spectacular we have seen in the World, including the Swiss Alps. We especially liked the ice-fileds of Jasper, Alberta, Canada. The most exciting thing we did was fly with the mail to remote villages by the Arctic Circle.
After that flight, we talked with the pilot for about a half hour where he told us how he became a bush pilot, his job in flying around the arctic, both carrying mail and passengers. When he asked us about RVing, we told him of our plan to travel for 5 years around the US and Canada, and things we have done over the past 2 years. He said “Wow, I would sure love to do that!” And I am thinking, “Wouldn’t it be great to be a bush pilot?” I guess the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.
Well, the old gang is breaking up, each going their separate way back to the States.
We have been abandoned and are alone in a foreign Country. Oh, woe is me. What will become of us?
