Anyway, interesting bit of info for you here. Doug and I were trying to guess the population of the Yukon Territory (YT), which we got to last night when we stayed in Nugget City. Anyway, we had barely seen a handful of cars. We figure we probably saw about 25 total, including those stopped at every gas station and town we stopped in AND passed along the road
Few more pictures of the road. We haven't seen the Northern Lights yet, and only had one animal sighting. We saw reindeer. They were chillin' in the road, moved out of our way, then went back into the road. They don't use salt up here, so we've figured anyway, so we have no idea what they were doing in the road. Oh well.
A note to worried mothers: We are safe, we are even in civilization tonight. We have nourishing food for our drive tomorrow, and we will reach back onto US soil by tomorrow night (Tok, Alaska)...that is, if they let us back into the country. We have plenty of water and emergency provisions for our drive...we also have a watch dog and an Army Ranger. We don't, however, have working cell phones (mostly no service), and when there is service we worry for the $500 cell phone bill we'll be returning to when normal life must restart. We love you.
