We were really testing our ability and driving- going from Grand Prairie to Whitehorse. That is 1544km in one day. But we were up for the challenge. The kids were sure we could do it and were most helpful. They made sure when we stopped, they went to the bathroom, they requested getting food to go for meals. And when we stopped for gas, everyone helped clean windows, get snacks, go the bathroom and with pumping gas.
The road was pretty empty, although we noticed there were a lot of big rigs going south!
We made it to Pink Mountain at 11am. We went to use the washroom and found out their water had turned off. Too bad we found this out after Cassel and Paul went in to use them! But it seemed it was just the women's that didn't work so Hannah and Kerri used the men's. We grabbed some sandwiches to go and were on our way.
We stopped in Ft Nelson and then Watson Lake for gas. The van was getting good mileage after so many kilometres in the road- something like 8.8litres per 100 kms.
We arrived in Watson Lake at 6pmish. Filled the gas tank, emptied the holding tanks and were on our way. Paul was tired so Cassel drove. He drove for about 2.5 hours and then was tired and Paul took over again. Paul felt refreshed after a short nap.
There were lots of bugs hitting our window on the way from Teslin- so many they sounded like rain!
We rolled into our driveway, after getting milk and bread at a convenience store, at 11pm, putting on 9790kms during our trip!
Thanks for following our adventure! Until next time!
