Pam in Yukon


Vanna White's job may be in jeopardy. Pam has already purchased her Holiwood sunglasses as you can see.

On our trip Pam said to me one day that we would be in Alaska "tomorrow". I said, "I don't think so". So she got out the map to show me. The line she pointed to was the one that separates BC from Yukon. She thought that the line was Alaska. You should have seen her face "fall" when she relazied we had another Canadian province to drive through.

... and the drive the last many miles to Alaska through Yukon are something else. The roads are horrible. There are no people there so there is no reason to spend money on roads.

At one point they were working on the road with a disk. A big disk was disking up the road and then a big roller was rolling it back down. There was a water truck putting water on the road. I don't know if that was all there was to it, but I'd never seen them disk up a road.

There were many dips and bumps and areas where the paved road disappeared into gravel and dirt. There is no rhythm that you can get into as you can with some bumpy roads. And the length of bad road is so long that it wears you out. But we made it, and Pam was in Alaska.
