Long day after a late start. Got in at 8:45 after driving almost 600 miles. Lots of road construction. Hard to get use to it not being dark at night and no AC even if its 60 outside its still stuffy inside. Hate having the windows open, I can hear everything outside. Cars people

Since it's so variable it's not a priority for me during this trip, but it would be a neat thing to experience if the stars/skies align at some point. (This also explains why I didn't publish this update until the following morning.) Oh, I did have one other thought I've wanted to share since ...
... wasn't Bin.
It was a mere hop from the border to Dawson City, home of the Klondike Gold Rush in the 19th Century. Then it housed around 40,000 people…now about 850( 600 of whom fly to Mexico for the winter). I know folk will be getting pretty bored with our gold stories, but it has to go in the blog since Janet has told me that gold panning is the single most exciting thing she has ever done….bar none. I find this astounding since in ...
