We are on the Alaska Highway!! We got into Dawson Creek, BC on Saturday night and instantly one of the trailer tires decided it was done and went flat. I thanked it for waiting until we were at the hotel, and promptly got rid of it!
We wanted to stay an extra day there anyway because of the historical things to see and, to be honest, I needed a break. I went to Canadian Tire on Sunday morning and found out they had tires in stock, but couldn't put them on until this morning. So we headed out and saw the local historical village.
We then let the kids go to a park for a bit and grabbed something to eat. Ashley found an aquatic center in town, so we took the kids there. It was awesome! Huge pools, diving boards, slides, the works!
I went ahead and got 4 new tires on the trailer for the last 1500 miles, and I'm glad I did. The Alaskan hwy is definitely not I75!! There were a couple construction areas with gravel roads for a few miles. Other than that, it was a very nice drive and got more and more beautiful as we for north.
We are now in Fort Nelson and will be heading to Watson Lake and then Whitehorse before finally crossing into Alaska at Beaver Creek. I can't wait! Thank The Lord for keeping is safe... Just a bit longer.
