Where I stayed
All of that aside, the views were beautiful as always and We eventually made it to the border
It was amazing to see the instant difference in the road conditions between Canada and USA/Alaska. The last 125 miles were enough to make me never want to return to Canada. Trust me, it was bad...really bad.
Once we got closer to Tok, Lauren dug through the Good Sam catalog for a campground and we settled on the Sourdough Campground. The owners are very nice, and even invited the kids to a sourdough pancake toss contest. Can you guess who won? Yep, Lauren did! She was one of about 5 people who managed to land a pancake into the bucket. In return, she gets a free pancake and reindeer sausage breakfast tomorrow (yep, its true we eat reindeer here otherwise known as Caribou in the free world). We came back to the camper to celebrate her victory with a pizza dinner - frozen Delissioso pizza from Canada (identical to a DiGiorno but different name for some reason). For those of you that have never cooked in a camper gas fired oven, well lets just say its an art to render something edible. The pizza came out near perfect (if I dont say so myself).
Tomorrow, we will be sleeping in our comfortable beds of Anchorage. We have about 6 hours of driving tomorrow but it should go quickly since its the last of over 100 hours of driving. Kristine was a little surprised that we would be home so soon. I think she thought we had 1 or 2 more days to go. But regardless, she is excited to see all of us.
Anchorage here we come!
