Tok to Fairbanks

“We should have diverted.”

When I left Tok, the sun  was out, temps seemed warm and all was well with the world.  That changed within the first 50 miles of the 200 mile drive.  That’s when the rain came.  I had a client text me.  She was down in Arizona and had returned to the ‘Banks last night.  “Rain, snow, freezing rain, we could see 6″.  We should have diverted.”

I had been tempted when I arrived in Tok.  Say, Canada… mind if I come back in?

It was 33 degs in Fairbanks when I landed.  With rain and snow.  The first thing I did was start a fire in the woodstove.  The cabin was a balmy 40 degs.  The second thing I did was put the battery charger to the Beetle.

5856.8 miles from San Antonio to Fairbanks via Knoxville, Minneapolis and Tacoma.  I don’t count the little side trip to Pittsburgh, since The Rover was not a part of that trip.
