Trip Report continues
We shortened the trip due to weather it chased us out of S Dakota and followed us all the way home.
To answer question I expect more travelers, but even with the exchange rates fuel in Canada is still expensive.
Northern Rockies Lodge diesel $1.54 per Liter skip or add just enough to reach Watson Lake, if you can go 325 miles diesel will be available at every major community.

please don’t put out your slides and if you put down your jacks or levelers put some plywood or other such protection to the parking lot pavement. Several Class A’s were completely setup as if
in camping mode.
Pine Lake Provincial park is open, better option than Walmart.
Village Bakery and Deli, is open great food must stop before heading toward Beaver Creek.
Turn Right at the Raven Motel, drive to the end of the street it is on the left.
The road is in pretty good condition to Destruction Bay
At Burwash the road is where the frost heaves begin, time to slow down.
After that several pavement breaks. This is where it becomes a mess, wash board, dust or mud depending on the weather or construction. They weren’t working when we came thru.
It rained, snowed, or hailed while we crossed this 80 miles to Beaver Creek none of it stuck to the ground.
Fuel was very expensive in Beaver Creek so if you can make Tok wait to fuel up.
Tok fuel diesel $2.34
Fast Eddy’s restaurant - Prime Rib Friday’s $22 9oz. very complete menu Halibut was great.
Tok, Glennalllen, Anchorage
Tok frost heaves begin to Glennallen, after Glennallen the road is great to Gunsite lodge
