Recommended Posts

On the road to Sayward and Kelsey bay is this cable building. Cable is about 2 " in diameter.

Camping at Kelsey bay rv park. This park keeps us returning. Ocean view, electricity, water, sewer, very quiet, and 20 dollars. With exchange rate of 1.30 to one US dollar it's a bargain. The owners are very nice, forgot.  Free firewood.

Crab sandwich for breakfast.

Lots of rain makes trees grow tall and straight.

The Alaska road trip.

Started this road trip on 6/10/17 and got home on 10/18/17. Drove 11,068 miles took 9 ferries for another 902 miles. Averaged 12.906 MPG. Best mileage was 16.51, worst was 10.405. About 860 gallons of gas.

Went through Us and Canadian customs 7 times. One cracked windshield and many rock chips. Lost one bolt that secures the plastic cover which covers the rear axle hub. Bought new tires in Fairbanks. Now for the clean up, motorhome needs every inch inside and out cleaned. No mechanical problems.

Met many fabulist people, saw mountains to the sea, bear, moose, caribou, deer, buffalo, mountain goats, big horn sheep, beaver, rabbit, grouse, ptarmigan, turkey, mice, owl, fish, musk ox, glaciers, coyote, wolf, mink, otter, whale, dolphin, otter, slugs, birds, there must be more.

Forgot to add this, when I leave for an extended road trip the motorhome usually weighs in at 6800 to 6900 pounds. I weighed just before hitting home this time, full of gas, water and the two of us at 7450#. Guess we picked up toooooo many trinkets.

A good trip report Darrel, with great photos, thanks for taking the time to write it,   Was that Canadian Icebreaker that you took the photo of the Polar Princess?

If so it tied up in Victoria Harbour today.    Mike

Mike, thanks for reading my posts glad you enjoyed photos. It does take more effort to post pictures and edit them when on the go.   Yes that was the Polar Princess.
