After a really good night's sleep, I packed up camp to head for Fairbanks. This was a 400 mile day, and the 'Top of the World' Hwy was a great start.
I did gas up prior to crossing the river the previous day.
The following pics are from the road to Chicken..
I didn't think however that the American side of the border would actually have the roughest part of this road, but after sliding around a bit I ended up in Chicken for their famous Cinnamon roll. The crossing itself was easy as I had passed all the RVs on the way up to the top of the road where the customs officers decided to unpack every RV that day.... They let me in after a few questions without any issues.
When asked if I had anything to declare, my answer of 'overpriced gas' made the officer laugh and I got waved through.
The infamous 12 gazillion calorie cinnamon bun . And yes, I ate the whole thing in one go with plenty of black coffee, which would later pose a small bathroom issue in Fairbanks..... (no details will be provided to keep it a clean report)
Motel room in Fairbanks at the Ranch Motel. Clean place not too pricey...
All in all a very nice day with just a little rain but great temps to ride in.
More to come.....
