    Dalton Highway continued

    June 4, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    We passed through some beautiful scenery the remainder of our trip. One community we went through, Livengood, is no longer viable. Gold was discovered on July 24,1914, on Livengood Creek by N.R. Hudson and Jay Livengood. The village was founded near the Hudson/ Livengood claim as a mining camp during the winter of 1914-15, when hundreds of people came into the district. A post office was established in 1915 and was discontinued in 1957. A construction camp was located near Livengood during the construction of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline. We stopped at a general store in a community called Joy. This community was named after the mother of the founding family who had 23 children - the majority of them were adopted.

    We left Fairbanks at 1:00pm and returned to our camp site at 3:00am! It was a long day but we did get to see the sun setting (it never sets completely off the horizon) - it's called the midnight sun.

    Nenana

    August 15, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 12 °C

    Dopo qualche giorno passato immersi nella natura del Denali National Park in cerca di civiltà ci fermiamo a Nenana. Di civiltà ne troviamo poca, la cittadina sembra abbandonata. Nenana è però conosciuta in tutta l'Alaska grazie al Nenana Ice Classic. Questa competizione consiste nello scommettere data e ora della rottura del ghiaccio sul Nenana River dopo il gelido inverno. Sembra ci siano diversi soldoni da vincere!Read more

    Camping 65 Miles N of the Arctic Circle

    July 24, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 73 °F

    Staying at Marion Creek Campground for the next two nights. Really nice place.

    There is a nice visitor center in Coldfoot that we visited today. Also picked up some more $5.50/gal fuel for the truck.

    Driving up to Deadhorse/Prudhoe Bay in the morning and dipping our toes in the Arctic Ocean. It will be nice to drive without towing the trailer.Read more

    Car Trouble on the Dalton Highway

    July 26, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 54 °F

    At the end of our trek to the Arctic Ocean we discovered a leak in our radiator. We limped our way to Fairbanks (255 miles and 9 hrs), stopping every 20 miles to check/refill the radiator.

    Not cool man! 😕

    We stopped by the Arctic Circle Information Center and met Sheila, the host. She awarded us our Arctic Circle certificate and told us to put pepper in our radiator to stop the leak. So we did. To our surprise, it worked.! The leak stopped, enabling us to travel without stopping every 20 minutes.

    To add to the excitement, we had nearly whiteout conditions for the last 30 miles. It was a combination of smoke, fog, and a drenching rain storm.

    Goodbye Dalton Highway...you almost kicked our ass.

    To add more excitement, we had to drive uphill on the Elliott Hwy, in construction zone, in a downpour, in three inches of mud that stuck very well to truck and trailer. Dave was driving in four wheel drive, both hands on the wheel, and wondering if we were going to make it. We over came.

    Arrived safety in Fairbanks and staying in the Rivers Edge RV "Resort". We need a beer!
