We finally found a place in Warba, Minnesota, with a population of 183. The next day we made it to Cheryl’s folks in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. After staying with them two days, we headed home finishing what we hope was the first of our Alaska adventures. We traveled over the 8,870 miles and averaged fourteen miles per gallon.
No Sleep, Until Alaska
The motto for our trip was, “No missed turns, only unplanned side trips”. Basically we stopped, ate, and went to bed. Then we got up and drove most of the next day. It was hard to know when to stop because it never really got dark. There just might be a moose or bear around the next bend.
On our next trip, we hope to stay in an area and camp for a couple of days at a time, have a few campfires, and relax more. We may even read a book, or at least research our next destination better. We’re thinking maybe Yellowstone.
