I rained all last night and became very chilly. We looked at the thermometer and it was 44 degrees. The rain ceased long enough for us to pack up and head out. It didn’t take long for the rain to return. It looked like the rain would last all day. We stopped for something to eat in Tok. I called ahead to the Whitehorse Honda dealer and ordered a caliper rebuild kit. It won’t be in for two days, which is how long it will take us to reach Whitehorse. It rained on and off all day, and once we crossed back into Canada, the road immediately became worse. It was the usual broken pavement, loose gravel, mud/dirt from filling holes, and generally bad road. We can’t wait to exit the Alaskan Highway and get to some sort of civilized roads. We have talked to many people who came up here decades ago via the Alaskan Highway. One guy said they broke three axles and replaced eleven tires, on two vehicles. That was in 1970, and he considers the highway vastly improved over what it was. However, he never drives it anymore. He flies out of Anchorage, and either ships his motorcycle to Seattle, or rents a car at his destination.
