To kick-off my Alaska to Argentina ride I booked the last ferry leaving on Sept 25 from Haines but nothing else in between.
1. Dawson City (30km)
I had hitch-hiked 3000km from Vancouver to Dawson City, now it was time to start pedaling. It was already 6pm but I decided to keep my promise to a friend and have a drink at "The Pit" before heading out.
2. Top of the World (120km)
I honestly didn't think I will be let into Alaska, customs would ask to see how much money I had and I would be turned back. Now that I made it, I really didn't know where I wanted to go, unlike The Yukon, Alaska has more than one main road.
Although I had planned to cycle further, I met Joe (his blog) who had cycled some 3500km from Vancouver and was headed to the Canadian Arctic. After talking for a while we just decided to pitch our tents beside the road.
In the middle of the night Joe woke me up:
"It`s the northern lights"
I opened my tent flap looked out then went back to sleep. I was too exhausted trying to keep up to Babbete earlier today.
