Alaska 2013, Day 48, Valdez to Tok

Friday July 19, 2013

Drove Valdez to Tok this morning.

Low cloud ceiling in town and the pass today.  There was rain on the Wrangells and you couldn't see any of the peaks.

Still fishing on the Klutina but not quite as many people today. Nobody fishing to Gulkana.

The Tok cut-off road condition was bad.

Left Valdez 11:30 AM got into Tok 5:30 PM.  Stayed in the Sourdough campground again. They had reindeer chili in a sourdough bread bowl for $10 and after that they had a pancake toss for a free breakfast. Emmy won a free breakfast with a little help.  The guy in charge was a real comedian.  After everyone had a throw an old guy comes out dressed in mukluks and a funny hat with a gold pan saying we wants to trade something for a free breakfast.  After the MC wouldn't bite on a song or dance he went for a story.  The old guy recited "The Cremation of Sam McGee" from memory, like he was telling a story. It was a hoot.

255 miles today.

7337 miles so far.
