Daily Didactic
If you tracked our last trip, you'll remember that the first three days or so began very early, because Brian had the foresight to pack the sleeping bag deep in a duffel bag on the roof rack and our couple was a little chilly. Theresa was not about to let that happen again, and a predictable outcome of this has been a far more normal summer rising time of our couple at roughly nine o'clock. Today continued that trend and we got on the road after most of our campground neighbors. It is of course, not a race, and neither Brian or Theresa feels compelled to put competitiveness before comfort.

After the always delightful drive around Kluane lake, we stopped in Haines Junction long enough to gas up and stare a bit at the "Haines Junction Cupcake". We stopped, for no particular reason, at the Real Canadian Superstore in Whitehorse and ended up with only a bag of ice. We figure this predilection toward box stores must be an Anchorage thing. We moved on through Teslin (without donating a gas cap this time), Watson Lake, and eventually landed in Brian's favorite rest stop Liard Hot Springs for the night.
