Moving Trip to Bellingham

Here are some of the pictures I took during our trip down to Bellingham, Washington. It was a good trip overall, it took us 5 days to do over 2000 miles.  It would have been sooner but we have heavy load, about 15 thousand pounds so we took our time driving down. We left Fairbanks July 16 about 3 pm. My Aunt came along for the trip down then she flew back to Fairbanks
We use Alaskan Highway South until we hit the junction for Stewart-Cassiar Hwy and took that road down.
One of the stop we took for our dogs to play in the water. This place was in Kluane Lake in Yukon Territory
This is the beginning of Yukon River

We had one indecent. One of the trailer tire blow-out, I think because of the heat of the road plus the heavy load. We are so lucky that when it happen we are close to town (Kitwanga, British Columbia) We spent few hours waiting for help.
After our tire got changed, we spent the night at 'Ksan Campground, Hazelton

  4. Yvonne, you're welcome and thank you.
    Lora, the road from Alaska to Canada border was awesome. After that, the first 100+ miles in Canada was an OMG road, the road is pretty bad, it is a holly road. After that, the road was fine. We bought a milepost book, it's pretty helpful, it shows us where is the next gas station, etc. although we had two 5 gallons of gas, we didn't really use it. The only thing with the Milepost is that the mile started in Lower 48-Canada Borders to Alaska. So we had to read it backwards.
    basebell6, I've missed you. Yes we had moved. There's some stuff that we have to take care down here. We still have our house in Alaska.
