... and then another and another. We asked if they would go in front of us to pack the road down and they said yes. This time when we drove through the construction it was not nearly as bad as the night before. They must have just dumped fresh loads of dirt last night but today it was somewhat packed down and we made it through without a hitch. As we got about 25 or so miles out of Prudhoe the fog and overcast skies lifted and it was once again ...

... like surfing then riding. After ~140 miles of driving on a trail masquerading as a road, we stopped at a gas station just past the Yukon River. The gas was an above ground tank and only had 2 options. Regular gas or Diesel. I'm not even sure what octane it was. I do know that the price was $5.499 per gallon.

Back to Tropicana and then southbound with a final destination for today of Wiseman and the Arctic Getaway again. Soon we had rain and yuck. Sara made it about 80 miles in four hours, navigating through the potholes and weather. We ate our sack lunches in the car as we went. I had old school PB&J.

... amount of frost heaves.  It was fairly rainy and overcast most of the day but we made the best of it.  We stopped at Milepost 115 for our picture at the Arctic Circle sign. A little info for you in case you didn't know: The Arctic Circle is an imaginary line encircling the Earth at latitude 66 degrees 33' North where the sun does not set on summer solstice or rise on winter solstice. As you travel farther north there are more days with 24-hour sunlight ...
